These were ridiculously amazing. Amazing, I tell you.
Whipped up this lovely dessert for my lovely girlfriend yesterday..
First time making truffles. Me likes. Super easy – and delightful – to make. The kind of thing that could be the end..or the beginning.. of a really great date. Use the same basic Rawtarian raw chocolate recipe as usual. Let the chocolate cool in a dish – you don’t want it liquidy. Pour coconut… Continue reading Coconut Raw Chocolate Truffles
