Raw Cacao Truffles

These guilt-free treats are great as you can flavor them according to your preferences. Out of one batch you can have a few different flavors. The reason why I love raw food, especially raw desserts, is because it's simple, and not complicated at all. Within a few minutes you have a delicious, healthy, guilt-free treat, and not only that, but also a very nutritious treat that can actually replace your meal :)

to cool down.

Toppings
