Ingredients:

  1. 3/4 Cup Raw Cashews
    3/4 Cup Cold Water
    1 lb Bittersweet Chocolate
    Cocoa Powder
    Unsweetened Toasted Coconut

Directions:

    1. Place cashews and cold water in a blender and blend at high speed for 1-2 minutes.
    2. Scrape the sides down and blend again until the mixture is the consistency of heavy cream.
    3. Meanwhile, in a double boiler heat the chocolate until it's all melted.
    4. Cool the chocolate until it's comfortable to work with (about 5 minutes) and fold in the cashew cream (making sure not to stir too fast or you'll create bubbles).
    5. Cover and cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours to set.
    6. Using a teaspoon, scoop out a small ball and roll in cocoa powder. Repeat until all has been formed into balls.
    7. If not eating right away, store truffles covered in refrigerator. Remove about 20 minutes before ready to serve to bring to room temperature.

    I have made these and have taken them as my energy snack while on long rides. They are great for packing (compact and easy to carry in my back pocket) and kept me fueled without the yo-yo's of higher sugary snacks. Great find!
