{Homemade Raffaello Truffles} – Bomboane Raffaello

homemade raffaello
Coconut is one of my favorite flavors. I find it easy to combine with most ingredients, from chocolate to berries, mango, lime or any other fruit. It’s delicate, but fragrant enough to catch ones attention in any dessert so it gives me plenty of options when creating a dessert. But these Raffaello truffles are a classic – inspired by the well-known brand, these homemade ones get very close to the original, but you get to make them at home so I prefer them, although they’re not exactly low in calories or light. The recipe uses sweetened condensed milk, coconut and almonds as a filling and taste amazing. Mind you, I can’t resist these, they were my guilty pleasure for Christmas over the last 2 years.
