Raw Chocolate Fruit Nuggets
VE, RF, GF

Yield: 50 nuggets

BerriesThese fruit nuggets are a made with a combination of hazelnut butter, fruit and raw chocolate powder. Not only are they a healthier option to regular chocolate treats, they are decadently delicious! Treat your special someone on Valentine's Day or any special occasion.

Ingredients

1 cup hazelnut butter, room temperature
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup raw chocolate powder
Fresh fruit, assorted
Ground nuts or seeds of choice to use as a coating
-- (or other coatings as desired (see notes))

Directions

Blend first three ingredients together with a wooden spoon to make the dough. Set aside. Wash fruits and chop into pieces that are a little smaller than bite sized. Form dough around fruit pieces and roll in choice of coating. Store in the fridge.

Recipe by: Robin Russell

"This recipe is based on Loraine Picot's almond nuggets. I swapped some of the ingredients around for a different taste and texture. My husband LOVED them!"

Notes

These treats were tested using Nature's First Law Organic Raw Chocolate PowderStrawberry. For fruits, I chose strawberries, blueberries, grapes and mango pieces. The strawberries were large and needed to be cut into
quarters. The blueberries and grapes did not need further preparation after washing as they are just the right size. Select fruits that you like best. Personally, I thought the strawberries tasted the most decadent!

I used a jar of roasted hazelnut butter, as I had some on hand. However, if you wish to create an authentic 100% raw food recipe use raw nut butter. You can try our recipe with one small change: you want your nut butter to be the proper consistency at room temperature and more stiff when refrigerated.

You can get creative with your choice of coatings. I tried the following: hulled hemp nut; sprouted flax powder; finely shredded coconut; more raw chocolate powder; finely shredded coconut mixed with raw chocolate powder. . . the possibilities are endless.

This recipe makes about 50 nuggets, so you may wish to cut it in half. Alternatively, the dough will keep in the fridge for several days so you can make more nuggets at a later time. Just bring it back to room temperature for easy handling.
