Strawberry Truffle Chocolates, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly

The fact that these are a healthy alternative, means you can have a couple more :) Use organic where possible,   Recipe adapted from The Healthy Family and Home

Ingredients Chocolate
1 cup Coconut Oil (melt it by standing the jar in some hot water)
1/4 cup Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar (To taste)
1/2 cup Cacao Powder or *Coco powder (*Note It wont be raw any longer if you use Cocoa powder)

Ingredients Cream
1/2 cup Cashew Butter Here!
1+1/2 cup Strawberries fresh or frozen and thawed
1-2 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Agave nectar (To Taste)
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1/2 Lemon Juiced
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract or Powder
1/4 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt

In a food Processor or blender, Add all the ingredients of the strawberry cream and mix till smooth and creamy.
In a bowl add all the chocolate ingredients adding more sweetness if you need, I used ice cube trays or you can use chocolate molds, Pour a small amount into each mold and then add a small amount of  strawberry filling to each, I put mine into the freezer after each step to get the layered effect, Add the final layer of chocolate and freeze, Serve, by letting stand out of the freezer for a couple of mins....They need to be kept in the fridge or freezer as they melt at a warn temperature.  Enjoy!! =)
