Raw Cacao, the food source of chocolate, is a superfood bursting with antioxidants, minerals and 'happy brain' chemicals. Chocolate in its natural state is guilt-free, nourishing, an aphrodisiac and anti-depressant. Come and learn to create chocolate truffles using dates, nuts, cacao and coconut for gluten & dairy free desserts that are amazing and nutritious! YUM!
This class is hands-on. All supplies included. Each person will go home with truffles, if they don't eat them all in class!
