Christmassy Truffles

These are little morsels of Christmassy heaven. A smooth inside with chewy chunks of raisins, the crunch of pecans and cinnamony aromas coated in a thin layer of crisp chocolate. Plus, they look seriously cute.

Makes 8-10

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Ground Almonds
1/4 Cup of Pecans
1/4 Cup of Raisins
1/4 Cup of Dried Cranberries
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil, Melted
2 Tablespoons of Honey/Agave/Maple Syrup
75g of Dark Chocolate
Goji Berries to top

Step 1:?Add the ground almonds and cinnamon to the food processor and blend to combine.

Step 2: Add in all of the other ingredients and blitz on high speed until it starts to come together.

Step 3:?Use your hands to roll the mixture into little balls and set them aside while you melt the chocolate. Dip each ball into the chocolate to coat and then place them on a board covered in parchment paper.

Step 4: Top each with a few goji berries and pop in the fridge to set. When the chocolate is hard, take out and serve!

This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan and Paleo.
