When you were a kid did you lick the bowl of the chocolate cake batter clean? Me too. And the spoons and the spatula. Well these healthy little truffle bites will remind you of those nostalgic days of helping mom bake your chocolate birthday cake when you got to clean the utensils with your tongue.
Using our super chocolatey and rich hot cocoa plus high omega walnuts and hemp seeds, this recipe is simple, healthy and will make your holiday party guests extremely giddy and blissful.
- 3/4 c nicobella hot cocoa mix
- 1/2 c Raw walnuts
- 1/4 c hemp seed
- 1 Tbsp virgin coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- extra cocoa mix for coating truffles or cacao nibs or cinnamon and coconut sugar (I tried all! They were all yummy.)
Blend all ingredients in a blender. Use a spatula in between blending to scrape dry ingredients off sides of blender until all dry ingredients are moist and blended together. Once blended, scoop into a bowl. Using your hand or a teaspoon scoop out the mixture and roll into 1" round balls (Rustic is good! They don't have to be perfectly round.) Place the truffles on a plate in preparation for rolling them in your roping of choice. If they are too soft to roll you can cool them in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
Roll the truffles into the cocoa mix, nibs and/or cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on a pretty plate and enjoy!
