I do love a good truffle, and this recipe is basically sugar free, dairy free (if you go for a dark chocolate above 70%) and therefore vegan. I used doTERRA peppermint oil as my weapon of choice, but you could really go with anything that matches well with chocolate. I think fennel would be great for example if you love liquorice.
Alternatively, you could leave them plain. Just go for that good old fashioned, straight up chocolate hit between the eyes! I also roasted my nuts, because I do much prefer the flavour. Therefore, not raw, but almost raw!
