Here’s a healthy recipe for the holidays when you need a little splurge and sweet fix. This chocolate truffle recipe is so easy a 5 year old can do it! (These pics are 6 years old and this little one has grown a tad.)
This recipe is a staple in our house for the holidays. Seriously, this recipe is fail proof. I can get my kids to do anything for a truffle. I keep mine in the freezer so I can always have a quick dessert bite, but they can be kept in the fridge if you don’t like them frozen.
In this recipe, I use sesame seeds, walnuts and macadamia nuts. I have been out of all three before and have substituted sunflower seeds and cashews, really any combination works. By the way, did you know that your body digests nuts better when soaked? Soaking your nuts in warm water makes them easier to digest and their nutrients more easily absorbed. While I don’t regularly soak my “snack” nuts because, let’s face it when I want a snack I want it now not tomorrow morning!

edients soaked overnight, drained and rinsed. Raisins soaked at least 1 hour, also drained)
Drain and rinse nuts, seeds and raisins.
