I have an important meeting coming up, and it is entirely appropriate that I am bringing my cacao truffles along for extra shmoozing abilities. I have had rave reviews for these, so I have a feeling they’ll help me.
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
Pulse cashews in food processor until fine – add maple syrup and process until creamy. Add cocoa powder, vanilla paste and coconut butter and process again. Cool in refrigerator until firm – roll into 3/4 inch balls and coat with cacao nibs. Plate and serve with caramel sauce:
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Blend together until lucuma is dissolved.
Drizzle over cacao truffles and enjoy!
