Remove and discard the stems from the figs and place the figs in a large bowl. Cover the figs with boiling water and allow them to soak for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain, pat dry, and place in a small food processor.
Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse until ingredients are well-combined and a thick dough forms.
Form truffles by rolling the mixture in the palms of your hands.
If desired, you can roll the truffles in more cacao powder or shredded coconut.
