If you like the consistency of luxurious chocolate truffles then you will most definitely like these Chocolate Orange Truffles from Deliciously Ella.
They are super quick and easy to make and are perfect if you’re after something to fix that sweet craving! They are also undeniably healthier than tucking into your favourite box of chocs!
The orange zest and juice in this recipe gives just the right amount of ‘tangy’ flavour. I have never been a big fan of chocolate and orange and don’t find it overpowering at all.
As you can see from my photos, I decided to substitute the cacoa coating for sesame seeds as I thought this would work better (personal preference). Next time I’d be tempted to include flaxseed in the recipe and would love to experiment with another citrus fruit, lime!
It’s to no surprise that I love using dates in snack based recipes as they are so versatile, are cheap to buy and are great for fibre and digestion. They require little preparation and can make some delicious treats. If you’re after some more medjool-inspired recipes then check out my No- Bake Vegan Bites or Chocolate, Goji and Cranberry Bars.
