Kitchen Stories contain a respectable selection of truffles: With black or white chocolate with dried apricots, plums and spices, with cranberries, with nuts and dried fruit and many other ingredients.
This time we chose to recommend a raw food truffles recipe gluten free, with grated coconut, velvety cream and topped with a ganache of black, bitter chocolate with high cocoa content. It is very mild in sweetness and you can use stevia instead of sugar and any chocolate you prefer.

They can be made in many ways and with different flavors: dark chocolate or milk chocolate, nuts, dried fruits, cocoa, sour cream, liquor, candy, cookies, butter or peanut butter, spices, and more.
