Maca Crunch Truffles
Maca flavor melt in your mouth. One truffle is all you need to escalate your taste buds straight to heaven.
½ Cup raw Walnuts, divided
Place ¼ cup walnuts in a food processor. Add the Cacao Butter, coconut butter, maple syrup, Coconut Palm Sugar, Maca Powder, vanilla and salt. Process until well combined. Add the last ¼ cup of walnuts and 2 tablespoons of Cacao Sweet Nibs, and process briefly to chop, but leaving a little texture.
Spoon into a bowl and refrigerate for about 20 minutes to slightly harden.
Grind the remaining Nibs in a spice grinder to form a coarse powder and place into a small bowl. Use a melon baller to form the truffle mixture into a ball, then carefully roll the ball in the Cacao Powder to dust the outer surface.
Place on a plate and repeat to form remaining truffles. Refrigerate the truffles for one hour longer to set completely, then store at room temperature.
