Gosh these really are little mouthfuls of joy, so creamy and smooth and they just melt away in the mouth.

They’re a doddle to make and an impressive little gift for a birthday or special occasion.

This recipe yields 10-12 truffles, and they’re Paleo, Gluten Free and Dairy Free, so they’re a healthy wee treat.

Pop into the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight to set.

Once set, use a teaspoon to scrape out some of the mixture, then start to roll little balls between your palms to form your truffles.

After that, simply roll the truffles around into your preferred topping.

I like to pop mine into little mini cases if they’re travelling to a friends house.
