Sophie says...

"These truffles are delicious with a coffee for an afternoon pick up or as an after -dinner treat. They are raw, gluten free, dairy free and sweetened with natural sugars from the dates. They are guilt free and will hit the spot when craving something sweet. They are addictive and it will be hard to eat just one! They are also a great little healthy gift, perfect for giving to friends and family."
