making chocolate truffles

Diabetics and the Chocolate Factory

Ever having a major chocolate craving?! I have found a fast simple way to make your own cacao chocolates and truffles! And it’s all sugar free and super low carb! I know, I didn’t think it was possible either! Cacao is an amazing raw superfood that naturally raises energy, provides antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, enhances weightloss, and improves mood. (Don’t get confused with Cocoa, that’s the already processed sugary kind of chocolate, you don’t want that) This snack also works as a post workout recovery snack too because it has a great source of protein, potassium, and magnesium! Enjoy fellow chocoholics! And just a little simple reminder of the difference between Cacao vs. Cocoa as you are grocery shopping and cooking:

Instructions:

Put a few spoonfuls of coconut butter into a bowl, and add about 2 spoonfuls of cacao powder to the mix (depending on how chocolatey you want it). Then add sugar free honey and stevia to it to give it that sweeter taste. Add however much sweetness you want to flavor it to your taste. Then roll the chocolate paste into a couple marble sized balls. Then just stick them into the freezer for a few minutes and BAM! You got yourself some instant yummy chocolates to eat. I sprinkled mine with cinnamon to give it another flavor. But you can add what ever you want into it to give it a different taste! Try mixing in coconut flakes, or almonds, or a little bit of raspberry, or cacao nibs, or perhaps add some cayenne pepper to give it a little spice. Be creative and have fun!
