Four chocolate truffle options

There are four types to choose from:

– Coconut rolled Raw and Healthy Chocolate Truffles
– Dark chocolate dipped Raw and Healthy Chocolate Truffles
– Coconut rolled AND dark chocolate dipped Raw and Healthy Chocolate Truffles (my favourite!)

The truffle low-down

The main ingredients of these raw and healthy chocolate truffles are dates, nuts, seeds, raw cacao / cocoa and coconut oil. They are naturally sweet and, depending on what chocolate you use for the choc dip option, are refined sugar free. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together in a food processor, roll them up and refrigerate to set.

Simply choose your favourite truffle from the options above, make a combination of truffles, or choose which is best suited to your dietary requirements e.g. omit chocolate dipped if you want a healthier / refined sugar free truffle.

They are really easy to make so this is a great recipe for kids to get stuck into, and their handmade treats could then be given to their teachers or friends. Pack them up in pretty gift boxes and give them to your neighbours, work colleagues and friends. Or serve them up as an impressive dessert at your next party.

Servings: pieces
Instructions
  1. Place all chocolate truffle ingredients EXCEPT water into food processor. Pulse until mixture starts to clump together about 30 seconds. Scrap down sides as necessary.
  2. Add water to mixture and pulse again for about 10 seconds. Mixture should be sticky and easily rolled into balls.
  3. Roll mixture into small balls and place onto a plate or tray lined with baking paper. Keep rolling until no mixture is left. Put into fridge while you prepare toppings.
  4. Get your desired toppings ready. Shake dried coconut onto a plate, melt chocolate in a bowl over hot water or put cocoa into a sieve. TIP: If making a combination of truffles - start by making plain truffles then progress to coconut and chocolate dipped so your hands stay clean for plain truffles.
  5. Get truffles out of fridge and coat with your favourite toppings. Plain truffles: Use a sieve to dust extra cocoa on top. Coconut rolled: Roll truffles into coconut so they are coated evenly. Choc dipped: Quickly roll plain or coconut truffles into melted chocolate or use a spoon to pour onto each truffle until covered. Place back onto plate / tray lined with baking paper.
  6. Place back into fridge and chill for 45 minutes - an hour before eating. Store in fridge.
