This recipe is from Sarma’s book called “Living Raw Food”. I use it as a base and add my own flavors to it. I tried 3 different kinds: Peppermint, Nutella and Chai (which has Indian spices in them such as ginger, masala and cinnamon..) You can get creative and add any flavor you wish… Careful though, if you eat to many they might keep you up all night..
1/2 Cup Coconut Butter, warmed to soften
3/4 Cup Agave
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
1 Cup Dried Shredded Coconut
2 1/4 Cups Cocoa Powder
In a high speed blender, blend the warm coconut butter, agave, vanilla, and salt. Add the shredded coconut, 1/2 cup at a time, and blend until smooth.
Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in 2 cups of the cocoa powder until thoroughly combined. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or more to set slightly.
Place the remaining 1/4 cup coco powder onto a small plate. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the chocolate mixture and roll them into balls. Roll these in the cocoa powder. Store the finished truffles in the refrigerator.
PS: I personally like to roll them in cinnamon or shredded coconut
