Recipe: Double Chocolate Raspberry Truffles (GAPS, Paleo)

Coconut Products

Apr 06

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!
