Ingredients


2/3 cup Cocoa powder, unsweetened (Look for raw cocoa)
1/2 cup Cashew nuts, raw (unsalted)
2 tsp Carob powder
60 ml Honey (can reduce for less sweetness)
2 tbsp Cacao butter
2 tbsp Coconut oil

Instructions


1. Set aside a half tbsp of raw cocoa powder - this is for coating the truffles

2. Melt the cacao butter and coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat.

3. Grind the cashews to a powder with a coffee grinder.

4. Combine the ground nuts, chocolate, carob powder.

5. Add the coconut oil one tablespoon at a time, combining well with each spoonful before adding the next. (this prevents separation.)

6. Add the honey - start with 3/4 of the full amount, taste and add more if you like more sweetness. Mix everything well.

7. Place in fridge for a while to harden so that you can shape into balls.

8. Form into small balls.

9. Then coat the truffles in chocolate powder or coconut shavings. Should make 30 balls.
