(rather) Healthy, Delicious Truffles 健康的なトリュフチョコレート

With Valentine's Day coming up, chocolate is everywhere, in every shape, form, and color. 
Most chocolates for sale are full of sugar and UN-fair trade chocolate, but here is a delicious and (more) healthy alternative.  I made these truffles with some of my students on Sunday, and even the 10 year olds were impressed. Who needs sugar and cream when you have nuts and love?

Cacao Truffles
¾ cup cacao powder 
カカオパウダー 200 ml
   (preferably fair trade なるべくフェアトレードのもの)
2 cups ground almonds 
アーモンドプードル 500ml
1/2 cup honey
 or agave syrup 
ハチミツ、またはアガベシロップ 125ml
1 Tbs. coconut oil
ココナツオイル 1大さじ
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup dried coconut flakes 乾燥されたココナツフレーク 500ml
Combine all the ingredients except for the coconut flakes in a large bowl and mix 
    thoroughly. ココナツフレーク以外の材料を大きめのボールに混ぜる。
Take a small amount of the mixture, and roll small balls between your palms. Add your    
     love! 一つの小さじくらいを摘んで、手のひらで丸めて、愛を込めましょう^v^
Dip each ball in a separate smaller bowl containing the coconut flakes.
Freeze overnight to harden the truffles.
