If you liked my Chocolate Truffles, you LOVE these Chocolate Chips ones! I am really loving coming up with new variations on favourite Raw or Healthy recipes. It keeps it interesting, and they still seem to always taste rich, decadent and delicious.
If you're sitting on the fence with give up store bought chocolate and other unhealthy sweet/desserts, I encourage you to jump off and just give it a go. What do you have to lose? Your diet plays a big part in getting into shape, so if you can get that under control, you'll find things so much easier. I no longer crave any sugar filled foods, an instead I've discovered this whole new healthy world that I'm so passionate about!
These ones are delicious! They do however contain whole Cacao nibs which can taste a little bitter, especially if you're not used to them. If this is your first time making Raw/Healthy Chocolate Truffles, I would suggest making either Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles or Raw Goji Berry & Chocolate Truffles first. If you've made those ones before, definitely give these ones a go!
Without any further delay, let's get to it!
You'll need a high speed blender or food processor. I used my Optimum Blender 9400.
500g of Pitted Dates (Roughly. Doesn't have to be exact)
Add the Raw Cacao, Peanut Butter and Coconut. Blend together well. You may need to stop a few times and scrape the mixture down from the sides.
Once it's blended together, spoon the mixture out into a bowl, and mix through your Cacao nibs with a spoon.
Get your bowl of ground up Pepita seeds ready. Get another bowl out and put in roughly 1/4 cup of Raw Cacao.
Set them aside on a tray, then then put them in the freezer. Ideally, leave them there for at least a few hours before serving. This helps harden the mixture up and makes them taste even more rich and delicious!
