These delightful truffles have the rich chocolate taste of raw cacao and the texture of raw cashews, rather than the sometimes less-desirable fats found in some Easter eggs.
Raw Cacao Easter Truffles
1 cup raw cashews
¼ cup raw cacao, plus extra for coating
¼ cup pure maple syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or 1 teaspoon vanilla essence)
½ teaspoon mixed spices (or more to your liking)
In a food processor, roughly chop cashews.
Add maple syrup, raw cacao, mixed spice and vanilla.
Process until smooth and the mixture clumps together.
Place extra cacao in a small bowl.
Roll teaspoons of truffle mixture into balls, then roll balls in the cacao powder to coat.
Store in fridge.
