These Orange Choc Truffles Will Rock Your Socks
If you love orange infused chocolate then you will absolutely love these. They are the perfect treat for when you have a chocolate craving.
You can either buy macadamia nut butter or you can make your own. Here is a good recipe on how to make it. You could also try making the truffles with cashew nut butter if you can’t get your hands on some macadamia nuts.
Makes around 20 small truffles
1 cup macadamia nut butter (see intro)
Zest of 1 orange
Juice of 1 orange
2 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp honey
4 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp vanilla
Desiccated coconut for rolling (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a food processor until well combined. It is okay for the mixture to be a bit wet, however, take a small section and roll it into a ball to see if it holds its shape properly. If not, blend in another tablespoon of coconut flour.
Take small sections of the mixture and roll them into balls, then roll in the coconut if you wish. The mixture is quite delicate so you have to be quite gentle with it. Continue this process until all the mixture is used up.
Store them in the fridge on a flat tray for at least 4 hours before serving so they can firm up a bit. Enjoy!
