Raw Truffles

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup raw cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao butter
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt

Coating ideas:

  • Shredded Dried Coconut
  • Raw Cacao Powder
  • Chopped up Goji Berries
  • Finely Chopped Pistachios or Almonds
  • Finely Grated Lime Zest
  • Matcha Powder
  • Maca Powder
  • Freeze Dried Raspberry Powder

Chop up the cacao butter very finely, and then place in a bowl over a pot of boiling water, and stir until melted. This only takes about a minute. You should have 1/3 cup melted cacao butter.

Place all your ingredients except the cacao powder into your blender and blend on a low to medium variable speed for about 10 – 15 seconds until smooth.

Add in the cacao powder and blend until just incorporated.

Transfer mixture to the fridge or freezer to firm up for a couple of hours.

Using a small melon baller or ice cream scoop, roll into small individual balls and roll in your favorite toppings. Try not to handle too much or the balls may become soft and messy.

Chill until ready to serve.

If you’re giving this as a gift, put each decorated truffle in a mini muffin case in a shallow gift box
