Raw Chocolate Truffles

Prep time:  20 minutes

Makes 25 truffles (unless you’re like me and tasting as you go…)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (100 g) raw cacao powder (cocoa powder will work also)
  • 1 cup (150 g) cashews
  • ½ cup (118 ml) maple syrup
  • Water (to mix)
  • Roll-in ingredients: shredded coconut, chopped nuts, chocolate nibs, raw sugar, cacao powder, ginger, or something else you love.

 

 

Instructions:

  • Mix nuts in a food processor until a powder, adding enough water to create a thick paste. (I often use nut butter and haven’t needed the water.)
  • Add maple syrup to nuts and pulse to process.
  • Add cacao powder. Pulse to process.
  • Refrigerate for four hours or overnight for best results.
  • Form teaspoon-sized balls of dough and coat with your chosen roll-in ingredients.
  • EAT!
