Cacao Truffles

Valentines Day Cacao Truffles | Dutchie Love

Just in time for Valentine’s day, here’s a little recipe for cacao truffles that are raw, gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free! Did I mention that they are also delicious? The ever so talented Dr. Candace Haarsma, naturopathic doctor extraordinaire (also my cousin, one of my bridesmaids, and the sister I never had), shared this recipe that she adapted with me during a Chocolate Creations workshop for 6 of my family members last week. In addition to truffles, we made chocolates from scratch, brownies, and fudge, every single recipe more delicious than the last! 

Using ground nuts and oats as a flour replacer, and cacao, maple syrup and vanilla for sweetness, these cacao truffles are surprisingly delicious. To customize them, we rolled them in a variety of toppings including pistachio crumbs, toasted coconut, cacao powder, pomegranate powder, puffed quinoa and more! Making truffles was a lot of fun with a few other people, making it a perfect activity for a Galentine’s gathering, or something to do at home with your sweetie instead of going out. Happy Valentines all! Enjoy your weekends filled with sweetness <3

    These look so delicious – I might make them this weekend! I’ve never heard of Galentine’s – it’s my new favourite word.

      They’re so easy and so tasty! Galentine’s is my new favourite way of celebrating Valentine’s day – you get together with a bunch of your girlfriends and have a ladies night! It’s a lot of fun 🙂
