We seriously can’t go past a Ferrero Rocher (or 3) for a decadent treat, so using those little gold-wrapped bites of deliciousness as inspiration for our own home-made gourmet chocolate truffles seemed like a no-brainer.
Our rich, dark and healthy Lover’s Latte is a feature of this recipe and with ingredients like Maca, Horny Goat Weed, Tribulus and Damiana it adds a real something extra to these truffles. Horny Goat Weed, Tribulus and Damiana are ancient aphrodisiac herbs which have traditional uses for increasing energy, vitality, libido and physical rejuvenation.
We always love highlighting the nutritional benefits of the ingredients used in our recipes, and treats are no exception. Chocolate (the darker the better - and our Lover’s Latte is 75% pure, organic cacao) is a rich source of polyphenol antioxidants. Hazelnuts are a great source of Manganese, Vitamin E and Magnesium. Maple is a source of Manganese and Riboflavin (one of the B vitamins) and also provides antioxidant polyphenols. Overall this recipe is a great source of healthy fats and is much lower in sugar than most chocolatey treats!
