Thermomix Raw Chocolate Truffles
I had a few bags of dairy free chocolate chips and was looking for a great recipe to use them. Inspired by a promotion at Young Living for Easter Chocolate Truffles, I started to experiment and made these Thermomix Raw Chocolate Truffles. I went through 4 batches of experimenting with the consistency and my family love these ones.
If you don’t have dairy free choc chips then I’m sure the recipe will work with a good quality organic dark chocolate. You can get dairy free dark chocolate as well at a good health food store. Go for the higher cacao content.
I found that some children liked this recipe and others not depending on how much sugar they have in their diet normally. It’s a great way to help them get off sugar or you may like to try our coconut rough recipe as it uses dates.
- 80g Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
- 300g dairy free dark chocolate, chips
- 80g raw cacao
- 180g coconut cream
- 1 drops Young Living Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Ginger Oils
- ¼ tsp. sea salt
- Extra raw cacao and or desiccated coconut to roll the truffles
- Add the first 3 ingredients to the thermomix bowl and melt 10 min/37 C/speed 1
- Scrape down any chocolate from the top of the bowl and ensure it is all melted. Repeat for a few more minutes if needed though you shouldn't.
- Add coconut cream mix 20 sec/speed 3-4, scrape down
- Add 1 drop of each Young Living Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Ginger Oils 10 sec/speed 3-4
- Pour into a clean bowl, cover and pop into the refrigerator for about 1 hour to firm up. It doesn't matter if you have left in fridge till you have time to shape.
- Leave chocolate mixture out on the bench till you can spoon it out it mould it into a mouth size truffle.
- Shape and roll in raw cacao or desiccated coconut
- Store in a container or jar. They are fine at room temperature below 26 C for a couple of days otherwise keep them in the fridge. They are nicer to eat at room temperature
Shape and mould into truffles. Rolling in raw cacao by placing a few in a bowl then shake the bowl around to coat them. I prefer raw cacao, though if you prefer them to ‘look’ healthier roll them in desiccated coconut. It may be less rich for you as well. All personal preference. Try both and see which you like. You may find something else to roll them in as well. Would love you to share with me.
It’s a great recipe for any time of the year. My family have named them Reindeer Poo. They have a beautiful ganache centre. One of my friends said that they are are just like truffles made with the cream but not truffles. Anyway I think they are better than the truffles made with cream as I can enjoy one comfortably without the sickly feeling that I get after refined sugar and dairy. If you are just starting the sugar free journey, don’t dismiss these straight away as you will get use to them.
This was a peppermint version with 2 drops of Young Living Peppermint oil.
Not yet familiar with adding essential oils to cooking, I only recommend Young Living for the quality and purity. Want to know more or order your oils, take a look at my Oils Website to watch a free webinar or download your free ebook here.It’s really easy to make your own treats that are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, nut free, paleo, vegan and most of all preservative free. When you buy commercially made things what concerns me most is the added extras that you are paying for. You save your money and your health.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think…
