Dark Chocolate Raspberry Orange Truffles


125 grams dark chocolate (65 percent cocoa)
4 tablespoons almond milk
1 teaspoon coconut oil, refined
2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 drop Wild Orange oil
Freeze-dried raspberries (or freeze-dried raspberry powder)


Combine almond milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, and almond extract in a small saucepan on low heat.

Stir until ingredients are combined, but do not boil.
Break up chocolate into a glass mixing bowl and pour hot ingredients over chocolate.

Stir until smooth, then add Wild Orange oil to taste. Place your mixture in the refrigerator and let cool for 3 hours, or until the mixture is firm enough to hold shape.

Using a spoon, form chocolate into balls and roll over crushed dried raspberries. Place back in refrigerator for another 30 minutes, then remove and enjoy.

Tips: The dried raspberries covering the truffles are beautiful, but feel free to experiment with dried coconut flakes, crushed nuts, and (for real dark chocolate lovers) cocoa powder!
