Chocolate-Raspberry Paleo Vegan Truffles

Chocolate-Raspberry Paleo Vegan Truffles

In 2009, I thought it would be a good idea to make these truffles as gifts for friends for Christmas. Unfortunately, it was not. This isn’t because they weren’t friggin’ fantastic—they are. The issue that I had was that they were so good that they never made it out of the house. I’m either a terrible friend, or an awesome Chocolate Raspberry Paleo Vegan Truffles maker.

You decide.

Equipment:

Blender

Food Syringe

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup softened Coconut oil

3/4 cup Honey

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 cup shredded coconut

2 1/2 cups sifted cocoa powder

1/2 cup Raspberry Jelly

Optional Macadamia Nuts (halved or whole) 

 

Directions:

1. Blend the warmed coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and salt in a blender until smooth.

2. Transfer into a bowl and stir in 2 cups of the sifted cocoa powder, and put into the refrigerator for 15 minutes to allow it to “set”.

3. Place the remaining 1/2 cup of cocoa powder into a bowl or a plate.

4. Once the chocolate mixture is “set” roll about a tablespoon at a time into small balls, and roll the balls in the cocoa powder.

5. Fill the food syringe with raspberry jelly and inject the truffles. Store in the fridge.

Optional: Press a macadamia nut into the center of the truffle and roll into a ball.
