Raw salted chocolate macadamia truffle bites

In the afternoon sometimes all I feel like is a little chocolate treat to keep me going till dinner. These truffles are bite sized and contain just the right amount of cacao to satisfy my chocolate craving.

All set to be processed

The base ingredients are macadamias, cacao and dates allowing the salt to play a subtle yet contrasting role in the truffles.

Rich chocolate colour

Knowing that I can eat something that’s so decadent yet healthy brings me so much happiness. But then again, who wouldn’t be happy after eating one of these?!

Bite sized treats!

These truffles will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for up to four days and in the freezer for up to two weeks.
