Quick vegan 5- ingredients paleo white chocolate truffles with coconut & protein. Raw cocoa butter Raffaello that is dairy-free & refined sugar-free.
My problem with raw cocoa butter texture
I usually never buy chocolate from the store. It doesn’t mean that I don’t eat chocolate. Like every other girl, I LOVE chocolate. I’m just used to order one kilogram of cocoa butter and make my own refined sugar-free raw chocolate. When I first started with my own raw chocolate, then I almost wanted to give up on getting the perfect texture for the white chocolate. The honey and melted raw cocoa butter just didn’t go together properly.
Solution? Different techniques?
Sometimes I got layers of honey and cocoa butter. I tried different techniques to get the right consistency. It’s not like melting usual chocolate which has many additives inside to make sure it melts properly. When you use the water bath, then the raw cocoa butter with raw cocoa powder actually works quite well and you’ll get a nice texture for raw chocolate. You just have to make sure that you melt it very slowly.
Found a solution: Failing Miserably
However, I found that when I wanted to make white chocolate truffles with raw cocoa butter, then I wasn’t happy with the texture. So, I almost wanted to give up to get my perfect raw white chocolate but then I had an idea to blend the cocoa butter to get in at the right temperature and texture. I haven’t seen that techniques anywhere but I decided to give it a try.
After failing miserably before with melted raw cocoa butter I just can’t even describe how happy I was when I realized that the blending technique works! You don’t even have to make any cooling before you can roll the truffles and the texture is just the best you can find for raw chocolate (or just coconut energy balls, coconut protein bliss balls). You can call them whatever you like. 🙂
All-Time Family Favorite: Paleo White Chocolate Truffles
Now, it’s my favorite white chocolate that disappeared from the fridge so quickly. It’s even a little bit dangerous. I have been looking for a healthier version of white chocolate ganache truffles for so long and I can finally say that I’m more than happy to say that I found it. It’s probably better not to even count the number of truffles I have been eating for the last few weeks. I can only say that I need to order a new package of raw cocoa butter (drops).

Just like Raffaello: Paleo White Chocolate Truffles
If you don’t like protein inside the truffle, then you can always leave it out. If you would like to have a whole almond inside the truffle, then you are more then welcome to add it. I hope you all enjoy this recipe!

P.S. Some time ago Depositphotos reached out to me and asked for an interview about my food photography. I don’t think that I’m a professional food photographer. So far, it has just been my hobby but if you are interested in food photography, then you can read the interview HERE. I’ll tell the story how I got interested in photography and try to give some hopefully useful tips.
