1. Place the nut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil in a small bowl and microwave until just warm and then whisk until smooth. Add in the vanilla, cocoa powder and salt and whisk again until thicker and no lumps remain.

2. Using a small silicone tray or mini cupcake cases, place a teaspoon of truffle mix in the bottom, top with ½ raspberry and top with extra truffle mix and smooth over the top.

3. Set in the freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.

4. Melt the chocolate and coat each truffle in the chocolate, place on a parchment lined tray, sprinkle with freeze dried raspberries and set in the fridge for 20 minutes. Store at room temperature or in the fridge, if warm.
