Chocolate Orange Truffles

Who doesn’t love a chocolate orange combo?!

These truffles are healthy, full of nutrition and oh so good!

If you’re facing a slump in your day, the citrusy orange provides a nice little zesty, zingy uplift to carry you through. 

These truffles have been so handy to just grab out of the freezer when we need a little pick me up, and my son has loved having them in his school lunch box too and they make a great nutrient-dense, filling healthy snack for kids. For more recipe inspo for growing kids, check out my ebook Real Food for Hungry Teens. 

Enjoy these Vitamin C packed party in a bliss ball!
