Perfect for the upcoming holidays, this chocolate treat is sure to please. Best of all, you can easily make this at home so your family can enjoy chocolate without the fear of high fructose corn syrup and other GM ingredients that most candy manufacturers use these days.

It’s a mine field out there in the candy world. You just can’t avoid HFCS which is all made from genetically modified corn which has been saturated with pesticides. Commercial candy and chocolate have been completely ruined from modern agriculture in this country. Now, you have to think before you put ANY chocolate or candy in your mouth because they have all been adulterated with GM HFCS.

Ten years ago we didn’t have to worry about that, but today we do. We need to get militant about what teachers give to students and more importantly, we need to teach our kids to trade in their candy from school for healthier options at home. This would drive me crazy when my son was in public school. If he were there today, I think I would be going ballistic at all the poisoned snacks and candy they are given there.

Save yourself from that aggravation and have these incredible treats at home for your family! Once they develop a taste for real food, there is no going back!

Ingredients for the Truffle

Ingredients for the coating

Equipment

Instructions

  1. Measure out the coconut cream and place in the pot

  3. Remove from the pot and place in the mixing bowl
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients for the truffles and mix thoroughly
  5. It should be a paste consistency – taste it to make sure it is sweet enough for you keeping in mind the chocolate coating is sweet
  6. Form small balls and place on a small cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  7. Place in the freezer to harden for 15 minutes
  8. Remove when hard
  9. Gently melt the chocolate in a small pot on low
  10. Dip the hard truffles in the chocolate and coat all sides
  11. Place back on the cookie sheet and place back in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden
  12. Serve as a treat

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Freeze Time: 25 minutes

I totally agree with you about the food and candy being given to our kids at school! They give my daughter candy for good work and every Friday they have Sugar Shack — EEHH!!! I try so hard to keep my children healthy but everyday she comes home full of sugar and doesn’t want the real food snacks I make! I can’t wait until the summer to get her back on track. I’ll have to try this truffle recipe, I’m sure she would like it because it’s chocolate :)

Hi Cassidy,
I sympathize. I bet there are other moms who feel the same way. Can you get a group together and speak to the teacher?

These sound delicious!
I totally hear you on the whole “kids in school” thing! All the kids in our district are entitled to a “free” breakfast, lunch, and two “healthy” snacks. And it drives me CRAZY to see what they feed these kids… muffins, chicken patties, and goldfish crackers. Oye! I drive myself crazy (some mornings crazier than others) packing my kids for-real healthy lunches and snacks!

Your Double Chocolate Raspberry Truffles sound fantastic, Jill! They would make a gorgeous Easter treat and would be lovely as a gift. I’ll be featuring them in this week’s Hearth and Soul post. I’ve pinned them as well :-)
