In my efforts to make the raw chocolate halvah, I realized I was super low on cocoa powder, ouch! Fortunately, however, I've decided bumps in the road like that are perfect opportunities to get creative so I started experimenting with some other ingredients until I had something worth eating! I started adding vanilla, then threw in some coconut oil, plus the little bit of cocoapowder that I did have. The nutty sesame flavor mixed with the chocolate, coconut, and vanilla give these little "truffles" a malted chocolate flavor that really surprised (and delighted) me. Definitely a successful endeavor, enjoy!
½ cup tahini
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
½ teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Process in a food processor. Roll into small, truffle sized balls. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. You can eat them without chilling, but they are best once they are a little more solid and cool.
