Dark Chocolate Truffles

These fantastically healthy dark chocolate truffles are full of antioxidant rich cacao powder and sweetened with honey and just a bit of vanilla stevia, which leaves a lot of room for the other flavors to come through.

Although I experimented and made these truffles with vanilla and raspberry, I ended up loving orange the best. I think orange zest and dark chocolate are a wonderful flavor combination.

This Dark Chocolate Truffle recipe is based on one from Against All Grain. While that recipe is delicious I have made a number of changes in order to cut down on the prep time and simplify the recipe quite a bit. I’ve also added stevia to this Paleo candy recipe in order to reduce the amount of honey and make it lower in carbohydrates.

  1. This recipe looks absolutely delicious. I really enjoy chocolate, so this is perfect.

    Although I am not much of a baker, this recipe doesn’t look too difficult to make.

    I think I would add some chopped nuts or coconut flakes on top for some added flavour.

    Is there a substitute for the raw cocoa butter? I haven’t come across it in stores.
