I searched and found that the Legally Raw Bar (found at http://www.thedailyrawcafe.com/2007/10/legally-raw-bar.html) would be a great beggining... I searched for special ingredient that would re-create the goey and "caramelly" taste of traditional nougat... What I found is simply delicious, fatty, extra sweet, but even better than the original version... I discovered that mixing sugar - agave, maple or honey - with melted cocoa butter ended up, when refrigerated, to a sticky cooked caramel texture... Yummy discovery!
Just in time for Christmas! The kind of sweeties you want to share with all your non-raw family!
These raw cookie balls (or donut holes) are so quick & easy. Arrange on a platter with fruit for parties and other gatherings. Even raw skeptics will love this simple dessert. Using freshly ground cardamom really does make a big difference! If you don't have a spice grinder, you can do it the ol' fashioned way with a motar & pestle. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
