I LOVE chocolate. I would eat plastic covered in chocolate- that is how much I love chocolate. I don’t understand people that dislike it, but I appreciate them being on the same planet as myself, because I get to eat their chocolates.

Most evenings, I like to savor a nice fluffy truffle. This particular evening, I was decided to find a healthy and delicious truffle recipe and try it out at home.

I had been reading about Hemp and its health benefits. Then, I stumbled upon the hemp seed truffle recipe and after making a batch, I didn’t stop. I have been making these for months now. They are rich and nutty and easy to do- did I mention: healthy?
