Inside out chocolate chip truffles

by Lori and Michelle on December 27, 2010

Last year around this time we made some raw nut-free chocolate chip balls dipped in chocolate!

And recently we saw Angela and Katie make some chocolate dipped cookie dough balls.

And ever since then we have been craving ours, so when we got home we re-visited our recipe and created inside out chocolate chip truffles. We changed a few things around.

We called them inside out because instead of putting the cocoa nibs (our chocolate chips) in the inside, we rolled them in them :)

Hands will get a little messy :) But playing with food is fun, right?

Enjoy some raw inside out chocolate chip truffles!

DSC_0017 We sure did enjoy them this holiday season! They were fun and different. Again not too overly sweet just perfect to our individual liking.

We will be back later with some re-caps of these past few days here at P2R :)   Stay tuned.

These look amazing! I have seen both Angela and Katie’s balls on their sites and they looked great too. I went the nonvegan way and made oreo balls dipped in chocolate but your version WILL be made when i get home.

I have TONS of coconut flour at home that is begging to be used now with this recipe!

The choc sauce + nibs are great looking, too!

I’m making these when I get home! I always intend to buy cacao nibs and forget everytime I am at the store!

Katie – we love cacao nibs! Although when we first had them we hated them, so the taste took us some time to like.

Jennifer and Jaclyn @ sketch-free vegan December 27, 2010 at 8:50 am

OMG! These look amazing! I need to utilize my coconut flour more. Great recipe :)

Pure2 December 27, 2010 at 8:53 am

Jennifer – we love using coconut flour! We love anything with coconut :)

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather December 27, 2010 at 9:03 am

They look seriously tasty! Do they have to stay refrigerated or can they be left at room temp?

Pure2 December 27, 2010 at 9:21 am

Heather – they can be kept at room temperature or in fridge. Even in freezer for longer shelf-life.

These look wonderful, I’ve gotta try once I have all the ingredients. :-) My fave dessert was the chocolate cake I made from Jennifer Cornbleet’s Raw for Dessert.

Those look so good!! Definitely way healthier and more stabilizing than what I’ve been enjoying lately…I did make an out-of-this-world raw chocolate cake though. That was probably my favorite!!

Pure2 December 27, 2010 at 11:05 am

Gabriela – raw chocolate cake…we will be right over!!

MarathonVal December 27, 2010 at 11:00 am

I have a strong urge to dip something in chocolate now. They look delicious!

I love cacao nibs! Even though I’m not really supposed to have cacao, I’ve made a whole array of low-sugar truffles for everyone over the hols. Pics on my blog. I love that you make yours not-too-sweet also and may have to try your recipe!
love

Those look so good! I need to pick up some nibs. :)

Valerie @ City|Life|Eats December 28, 2010 at 11:11 am

These look amazing. I need to tweak them (dates and I don’t do so well) but will definitely be making them :) Also, I linked the recipe to a Top Ten list I am hosting for Living Free this week :)

They look beautiful with the cacao nibs on the outside! I must admit I never developed a taste for the nibs–I might just make these with chopped chocolate or carob on the outside. Of course, they won’t be as pretty that way. ;)

Ricki – yes it took us some time to get used to the taste of cacao nibs.
