These Raw Chocolate Truffles Are As Good As The Real Thing

By Anna Franklyn - 14 Apr 2017


Chocolate is life, we know, but sometimes you just need a slightly healthier alternative.

The Wandering Matilda knows this all too well, so she has done us a solid and created these magical balls of goodness. Just as tasty as regular ol' chocolate, but free from all those nasties!
 



Base

Method

In a food processor blend the nuts until you have a sandy like nut flour. Add the remaining base ingredients and pulse until a sticky dough forms.

Press this dough evenly into a lines baking tin and pop in the fridge. Add your soaked cashews to the food processor and blend until almost smooth.

I like to keep little bits of cashew in the mix as it acts like the nougat in real toblerone. Repeat with the remaining cake ingredients. Taste here to ensure you like the sweet and bitter balance.

Pour this mixture over the base and freeze for the day or over night.

This needs to be kept in the freezer as the oils melt in your hands pretty quickly so just keep frozen until you are ready to tuck in! I cut mine into slices but little bite sizes are perfect also.
