These DIY Chocolate Mandarin Truffles are Paleo and Delicious for Easter

The spring season brings with it a preference to mix traditional flavor profiles with lighter fare like fruit, so these DIY Chocolate Mandarin Truffles are the ideal way to celebrate Easter or simply the arrival of warmer weather.

To start, the DIY Chocolate Mandarin Truffles require raw cacao butter as the base, which will be heated in a double boiler to get it just melted enough to work with. From here, the malleable cacao is portioned out into tablespoon amounts and rolled. After dusting with cacao powder, the DIY Chocolate Mandarin Truffles are them garnished with a simple bit of Mandarin orange zest for flavor and presentation.

The DIY Chocolate Mandarin Truffles are Paleo and contain no nuts unless the baker wishes to mix some in for a different experience.
