These raw truffles are... OMG! Whenever I crave chocolate, they are simply the first thing that crosses my mind. What I love the most about them is the creaminess, they literally melt in your mouth, they are soft and have the best chocolate flavor ever. Also, the coating gives them the crunchy aspect which I love, love, love & also it enhances and balances the aroma (the filling is sweeter and the coating a little more bitter).
Anyway, you should definitely try them. Here is the (simple) recipe :)
Makes about 15 truffles
1 cup raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup plant based milk
1/2 cup coconut oil /coconut cream
1/4 cup raw cacao poder
1/4 tsp vanilla bean /extract
pinch of salt
*1-2 bars raw chocolate such as The Raw Chocolate Company or any raw chocolate bar you like.
1 cup raw cacao butter
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
3 tblsp healthy sweetner
tossed hazelnuts /raw hazelnuts
You will need a good blender for these. Start by blending the raw hazelnuts until you reach a buttery consistence. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until everything gets really smooth. Freeze the composition 1-2 hours.
Bain marie the raw chocolate and prepare a tray for coating the truffles.
Get the chocolate composition out and form around 20g balls using your hands. Put them aside and then coat them in the melted chocolate or make your own chocolate, it's bery easy. Melth the cacao butter, add the cacao butter, salt and sweetner, mix well and that's it. You can optionally add 1-2 dried cranberries to each ball. I love to do that! They are sour and goes so well with the chocolate.
To decorate, you can use tossed/ raw and crushed hazelnuts.
They will last a few weeks in the fridge.
Let me know if you try the recipe and if you liked them <3
