Recipe Directions

Incorporate the walnut/cocoa mix into the gooey sludge until you have a gluey, sticky, slightly orange-flavoured, chocolate ball.

Add enough cocoa nibs for texture and crunch.

The texture should be slightly jellied, but firm ( a little like well set turkish delight) but with crunchy walnut bits and cocoa nibs.

Roll the mix into apricot pit-sized truffles, and set aside whilst making the chocolate for the shells:

Chocolate Shells:

My chocolate shells were basic and very easy -

* a big dollop of soft-but-still-solid coconut oil (perhaps 3 tablespoons),

* a little panela (evaporated cane juice),

* a small slug of maple syrup

* about two more dessertspoons of cocoa

* a small pinch of salt

Whizz it all up in your mill or grinder… Easier than pie :).

Finally the blade came out of the mill, and in went the truffles for a toss in their chocolate bath (I used two small cocktail forks to swish them around).

NB Double dipped truffles would be even more decadent!

Double NB: These truffles MUST be kept refrigerated - the chocolate mix will melt at room temperature!

Mopoke's Thoughts

Raw food Tim Tams! - My son wouldn't agree, but for me this is the closest I've come since being raw to that choc-covered biscuit slice with the fudgy innards that - despite being so bad for me - used to taste great savoured with a glass of icy milk.

The resemblance came in the way that, when I nibbled the truffle in between small sips of water, the chia filling literally meltied into the mouth ..... um maybe you had to be there.

This was a recipe that I wasn't expecting to be a keeper so the measurements are approximate.

Do you think i could just add water or fresh apple juice instead of the orange juice? Orange and Chocolate are not a combination that I personally like... but, i like your idea for the vanilla.... This is just to make a sludge, so it should be okay, right?
