Carrot Cake Charoset Truflles

Make 24 medium balls

1 cup raw unsalted walnut halves
1 cup pecans
1 cup pitted medjool dates
1/2 cup dried unsweetened pineapple
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, plus extra for coating (if desired)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups finely shredded carrots

Place walnuts, pecans, dates, and pineapple in a high-power food processor. Process until almost paste-like. Add 1 cup coconut, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Process until combined. Turn mixture out into a bowl.

Use a paper towel to blot excess water from carrots. Add carrots to date mixture and mix to combine. Form mixture into 24 round truffles; roll in shredded coconut flakes to coat, if desired. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.
