Gopi's Truffle Lollipops

I created this recipe for truffle lollipops today for my friend Kunti Devi, who needed a quick sweet for lunch. Give them a go, they're easy to make, healthy and scrumptious!

8-10 unsulphured apricots
4-6 dried figs
8 prunes
2 handfuls seedless raisins
1/2 handful cranberries
1 handful crystallized ginger pieces
1/2 handful organic chocolate chips
1/2 - 1 cup organic pure maple syrup as required
1 tbsp vanilla essence
2 cups wheatgerm
3 cups freshly ground almonds
 Lollipop sticks/cocktail sticks

To cover:
1 cup organic choc chips melted
1 cup organic white choc chips melted

Rinse the dried fruits under running water and drain. Chop all dried fruits fine in a food processor, add ginger, then vanilla and maple syrup. Add to almonds, wheatgerm and choc chips in a mixing bowl, and knead together. Roll into smooth balls, makes approx 16. Push the lollipop sticks into the truffles. Dip into the melted chocolates and place onto a tray covered with waxed paper. Chill and harden chocolate covering by placing in the freezer for 1 hour. Watch out they are addictive! :-D
