  1. I totally want to try these. I have a weakness for truffles, but obviously the traditional version should not be consumed on a regular basis. šŸ˜‰

  2. These are so easy but taste so expensive. I made some for my non raw friends. You don't have to worry about how long they will store because they will be gone long before that. I really like showing my husband that these are also low-cost. I did have some extra shredded coconut that I rolled them in to add to the festivities. Yummy stuff you keep posting! Thanks!
