How to make Reishi Truffles
Medicinal chocolate truffles… What could be better than medicinal finger food? These super delicious, sweet treats are easy to make and will please anyone!
- 1/4 c. raw coconut oil
- 1/2 c. raw cacao powder
- 1 tsp. He Shou Wu
- 2 tsp. Reishi
- 2-3 Tbsp. raw honey
- 1 Tbsp. pure water
- 2 Tbsp. turmeric powder
- Melt the coconut oil by placing the jar in a bowl of boiling water. Let the water cool and the coconut oil will melt. Once melted, pour the coconut oil into a small bowl and stir in the cacao, herbs, honey and water until well combined.
- Pop the bowl in the fridge for a couple of minutes so that the oil gets firm enough to handle. Remove a heaping teaspoon of the chocolate mixture out of the bowl and roll into a ball on a smooth surface. Roll in turmeric and set on a plate.
- Chill for 15 minutes before serving.
- Keep truffles stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Truffles will keep for 5-6 days in the fridge.
