Raw Food Recipes: Double Chocolate Truffle

makes 8 pieces ~ $.41 per piece


truffles
  • 1/2 cup nuts ($1.00)
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dates ($1.00)
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder ($.60)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch salt
coating
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted ($.10)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder ($.40)
These are so simple to make for an easy dessert. 
In a food processor with an “S”
blade, process the raisins, nuts, cacao, vanilla, and salt until the
mixture starts to stick together. Using a rounded spoon, form eight
truffles. Put in the freezer to chill for at least a half hour.
Make the chocolate coating by
melting the coconut oil and adding to the agave and cacao powder. If
this becomes stiff, just warm again slightly in a barely warmed oven.
Spoon the chocolate over the bottom of the truffles. This should set up
almost immediately as the sauce contacts the cold truffle. Then spoon
over the top, letting it cool to set. The chocolate sauce will harden
into a semi hard shell over the truffles for maximum chocolate impact.
