Do you find yourself craving a dark chocolate fix on the daily? If so then being able to whip up your own drool-worthy chocolate confections at home can be a life saver. And it doesn't have to involve complicated steps or ingredients. In fact, you can make a batch of decadent raw chocolate hazelnut truffles with only 4 main ingredients. Yes, only 4!
These truffles can be made with any of your favorite Rawmio raw chocolate Essentials bars - orange, mint, 70% dark, 85% dark, or Keto. The steps involve finely chopping the chocolate bars, then gently melting the pieces together with Rawmio Chocolate Hazelnut Spread until liquid, stirring in some coconut milk and a dash of vanilla (and Himalayan salt if you like), then letting the mixture set for just a few minutes in the fridge to firm up. Once it begins to harden you can use a tablespoon, cookie scoop, or melon ball scoop to form your truffle mixture into balls.
This recipe makes 1 dozen truffles, so store any extras in the fridge or freezer so you always have a little somethin' to sink those teeth into when the late-night chocolate cravings hit.
Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles
Makes roughly 1 dozen
7 Rawmio Essentials bars, chopped finely
2 tbs Rawmio chocolate hazelnut spread - either Toasted Hazelnut or Chocolate Hazelnut
1/4 cup coconut cream
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of Himalayan salt (optional)
1/4 cup raw cacao powder (for coating)
1) Start by chopping chocolate Essentials bars into very small pieces - the more finely chopped the chocolate the quicker it will melt.
2) Using a double boiler method, melt the chocolate pieces together with the Rawmio spread in a heat-safe bowl, being mindful not to overheat.
3) Stir in your coconut cream, vanilla, and optional salt, stirring gently until well combines.
4) Cover and let the mixture set in the fridge for 1 hour to harden.
5) Use a small cookie scoop, melon ball scoop, or a tablespoon to make tablespoon-sized balls. Roll the balls in between the palms of your hands until evenly formed (or close to it). Sprinkle some cacao powder on a plate and roll your finished truffles in it to coat them. You can also use hemp seeds, cacao nibs, or crushed hazelnuts for another alternative.
Store in the fridge for several weeks or freezer for up to a month Enjoy!
