Chocolate Truffles – An healthy sweet treat for valentines day
Did I say that those chocolate truffles can easily be boosted with afrodisiac herbs for your valentines day night too ? ahaha trust me I tried this recipe few times before posting it and you can make them even better by adding 1/2 teaspoon of grounded herbs. The perfect afrodisiac herbs mix will be ground ginger + maca powder + ginseng. I also really loved adding cinnamon and vanilla in those raw chocolate truffles. Same for the coating there is many options here. As I love coconut I choose to roll my truffles into desiccated coconut but you can also roll them in different sorts of crushed nuts or cocoa powder.
I made this recipe two times. First time I used strong 90% dark chocolate to make this recipe. The darker the better! You will wonder if adding some liquid sweetener was really useful here. Well, I found the taste better with a few tablespoon of liquid sweetener as it fully cover the avocado taste. If you are on a strict sugar free diet, I did this recipe another time fully sugar free. Here I used sugar free dark chocolate – I used Well Naturally Chocolate in New Zealand. Then I replaced the quantity of liquid sweetener by the same amount of virgin coconut oil and to add some sweetness I added few drops of liquid stevia into the batter. Both recipes are really great but you feel the avocado taste a bit more in the sugar free recipe.
There is no more to say about those truffles. I just made them and already had 3 of them while shooting them. I really have to stop eating them now because tonight I have got some family for dinner and it is our dessert. This recipe makes 14 truffles. You can easily store them in the fridge in an airtight container up to 1 week. But trust me you will eat them before a week ! Enjoy! Carine.
