Raw Chocolate Drops

Raw Chocolate DropsThese chocolate drops were inspired by the base from several of our raw cheesecakes, made using macadamias, dates, buckinis and coconut. It is such a great combination of flavours so we thought we would use the same recipe to make raw cookies, topped with choc-tahini sauce (recipe in basics). You could also substitute the choc-tahini sauce for raspberry-chia jam or raspberry coulis to make more traditional jam drops.
