Posted by Nicole Frain on Dec 04, 2018 in #Recipes#12 Days of Christmas.

It's our 12 Days of Christmas celebration!

Chocolate, raspberries and nuts... What a great Christmas combo!

Here's a recipe all of your friends and family will love, even those who follow a plant-based diet!

These decadent truffles are rich and nutty on the outside and have a surprise burst of freshness on the inside.

For those fortunate enough to win our Limited Edition Very Berry Earth Protein, pop a scoop of that in, otherwise improvise with our regular chocolate protein.
