Vegan Chocolate Espresso Truffles

I am always looking for quick, easy snacks on the go, and these babies are it. Made with a shot espresso, they take less than 15 minutes to make and are absolutely delicious. I recently purchased a bag of raw cacao butter, so I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of goodies. I always have a hard time finding binders for “raw” baked goods, so the cacao butter is perfection, as it’s very solid at room temp. I hope everyone enjoys, and remember, feel free to add your own spin on these incredible little balls of goodness.
