    Ah! This is so perfect! I’ve been thinking of cooking a pain d’epice bread lately but am too lazy to bake, haha. Enter raw truffles! Genius!

  2. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    i love that you keep your spice mix in a bejeweled container. 🙂

    Love the concept of a sparkly box in one’s head labelled “my favourite things”. I’ll go check whether I got one. 🙂

    The baby monkey riding a pig is undoubtedly in my own jewel box of things I love; along with hand-painted origami paper, lemon swiss rolls dusted in powdered sugar, and bright orange crepe-petaled poppies.

    Can there ever be too much clove in any dessert? It is one of my very favorite flavors so I’m sure I would love these spicy little truffles.

    what a tasty spice mix!!

  6. Sig

    Bwahahahahahahaha. How have I NOT seen that clip before.

    Damn you. Because now I’ll have that in my head forEVER.

    I also love how much you love balls (because I like to be crude I’m calling them that). And continue to come up with these delicious flavours 🙂

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I don’t know how you do it, but every truffle recipe you post sends me slightly dizzy with excitement and/or awe and/or a sense of magic. This time around, I’m also dizzy with the discovery of pain d’epice spice mix. How did I not know of it?! It’s captivated me already and I haven’t even tried a pain d’epice spice concoction. Thank you 🙂

    This is my first weekend home all winter and you have put the cooking fire in me! Perhaps I need some crazy songs in my head too.

  9. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh yes please! And suddenly I want my blog or an offshoot of it to be called “Cakespeditions!” 😀

  10. Johanna GGG

    pain d’epice is on my list of cakes I must make – I love the heady smell of the spices so I am sure that I would love these truffles.

    Cakespeditions sounds excellent – I don’t have enough of these in my life right now – esp when it is so wet that I am less inclined to venture out.

    And your shows that you periodically re-watch sounds interesting – we are always in search of the new so we don’t go back to our old stuff so much – have you watched the killing yet – one of the most amazing dvd series I saw last year and would be interesting to rewatch that. We are currently watching seachange for the first time and loving it

    Whoo Hoo! Triple fist pumps and crazy dancing that scares the dog slightly: ‘I’VE GOT ALL THESE INGREDIENTS HERE RIGHT NOW!’

    ….and, to my deepest shame, we were given the entire first three seasons of the West Wing a few months ago and have yet to watch a single episode. My only excuse is my current addiction to BBC TV’s current predilection for featuring any news chat show featuring comedians….

    You never fail to impress/amaze me. These look pheeeeeeeenomenal! I love pain d’epice in every form (uhh… like.. the two forms i’ve had it in: its original form, and french-toast-ified), so I imagine myself being very, very fond of these little cutiepies.

  13. Emma

    Since I’m on a crazy kick to make these no-bake items of yours – a kick that has my loved ones confused, and wondering if I’ve been possessed by some sort of crazed raw foodie ghoul – these look great. Pain d’epice, yum.

    I have been reading incredibly voraciously for the past few weeks. Granted, it’s fluffy sci-fi, but I’ve still crushed thousands of pages. Perhaps I want to be sick more often…. not really, though.

    I have an unjewelled, unbedazzled box that I keep treasures in that I either made or had made for me long ago. It is be-yarned instead, and prominently features a pog or two. Special fuzzy box, aww:)

  14. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    I rewatch Veronica Mars all the time too 😉 I really like that show! Was so upset when they cancelled it! I still don’t get why One Tree Hill is still on TV but then Veronica Mars is cancelled sighhh

    These look great ~ I really like all your raw vegan treat. They’re all sweet and delicious but still so healthy 😀

  15. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    I remember when the baby monkey video went around college in Oz. I’m that was a painful week for ears everywhere.

  16. Hotly Spiced

    What perfect looking balls! This is a great vegan recipe. These certainly do look delicious.

  17. ck

    Mmmm, more yummy things for me to make 🙂

  18. Tammy

    Making these tomorrow!

  19. hungryandfrozen

    Just another notch in our Truffle Party belt, Hannah! I like the sound of these ones, much as I like your boundless capacity for truffles.

    Also: the sight of that monkey determinedly leaping onto that pig and holding on for dear life – I near-on wept with happy laughter at the cuteness.

  20. Lou

    Love the sounds of this spice mix…. especially the fennel – such a great flavour.

  21. msihua

    Erm… I have nothing to say, you know I’m not a raw fan at all! Next time you come down, would you get me more kale chips? MMmm.. AnD I haven’t eaten the raspberry ones yet!

  22. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    the touch of fennel is so interesting. it was lend a slightly liquorish touch to it. i need to try these little truffles… i think i would eat too many in one sitting. i am weak for almonds, pecans, and walnuts.

  23. penny aka jeroxie

    The spice mixture sounds amazing. Send a box over?

  24. Catherine McLean

    These look absolutely delicious!

  25. Richa@HobbyandMore

    ummm i can imagine those spices in the truffle.. its almost a chai spice blend minus the cardamom.. and i cannot live without some or the other spice in my truffles! i think i am going to make these into tiny bars for hubbs office snack!

  26. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Ok, Matt and I watched the first Downton Abbey episode for free online awhile back because about a million people mentioned to me that there was a character named Matthew Crawley in it – so we HAD to see it! After that first episode, we wanted to watch more, but then the free episodes online disappeared. They have not reappeared. Tears.

    Yes, roll them in coconut sugar next! Then teleport them to me!

  27. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Mmm yes, if I had a bejewelled box, I would make sure it was always full of pain d’epice truffles.

    The spice mix sounds like the most fragrant thing ever, and David Leibovitz is awesome! Have you read “The Sweet Life in Paris”?

  28. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Oooohhh, I can imagine how wunderful they taste! 😀 That spice mix is one I very often use for cooking. 🙂 Chapeau, Hannah! 😀

  29. Louise

    Ah pain d’epice! How do I love thee, let me count the ways? These sound fab. I love West Wing too, very clever- have watched most series I think. Haven’t seen any Downton Abbey as yet. Must get to doing that.

  30. Alisa

    This spice mix sounds amazing Hannah! I’ll defintely be giving it a try.

    I haven’t seen any of those shows – how out of the loop am I?!

  31. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Love the spice mix, Love David Lebovitz too 🙂 These look divine! & I’ve never watched SeaChange (poor form, I know). I want the new Downton season already!!!
