    Thank you soooo much for this recipe! I have made them 3 times now and they never last more then a day or two! Oliver devours them as does hubby and myself! I gave them to my in laws without telling them the ingredients and they thought they were “real” truffles! What a winner! Just awesome being able to give Oli a dairy & gluten free treat thats 100% healthy!
    Thank you Renece!
