Vegan chocolate truffles 


Hello my dears, I have a special Christmas recipe for you today. I made these  raw vegan healthy chocolate truffles with just a few natural and simple ingredients. For sure they will look amazing on your Christmas dinner table.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
1/2 shredded coconut

1/2 cup almond or cashew butter

2 tablespoons of cocoa

Stevia – depending on how sweet you like it

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/2 cups of walnuts

Ingredients for the chocolate coating:
1/4 cup Melted coconut oil

1/4 cup melted cocoa butter

1 tablespoon of cocoa

Stevia

Directions
Mix all your ingredients in a blender, taste it if it’s sweet enough. You will get a sticky bater, if it’s to dense you add almond or coconut milk.

Form some balls and put them into the fridge to chill. Meanwhile you prepare the chocolate coating.

Heat up a little bit the cocoa butter and the coconut oil, add the cocoa and the stevia and it’s ready. Take out the balls from the fridge and cover them with chocolate and some crushed walnuts.

Chill them in the fridge for 1-2 hours. 

Enjoy! I wish you happy holidays! :*
