I made these little guys for the FIRST time last night, and can’t believe I’m only discovering them now… Took me 15 minutes to make. Incredible!
Paleo Chocolate Truffles:
1/2 c. cashews
4 dates, pitted and (soaked in hot water for about 10 minutes)
2 T raw honey
1/2 c. cacao butter, melted
1/4 c. organic maple syrup
1 c. raw cacao powder
1 t. vanilla extract
1/4 t pink salt
2 T coconut, shredded and unsweetened (optional)
2 T raw cacao nibs, ground small
2 T raw cacao powder
Pit and soak 4 dates in warm/hot water. Set aside. In a saucepan, slowly melt the cacao butter. Blend cashews in vitamix or food processor until smooth. Combine cashews with cacao powder, vanilla extract, pink salt, honey and maple syrup. Add all ingredients to food processor (including dates) and blend until smooth. Let cool about 15 minutes. Roll into balls and place in the fridge for about 1 hour or until firm. Optional to roll in toppings for a very festive look!
