Healthy RAFFAELLO: Elite Candy Made In 5 Minutes!

IMG_3569

I was 16 when I was discussing my favourite sweets with my friends and fellow fighters Attila Korkmaz and Vlado Sikic. We just finished a gruelling kickboxing workout, training harder than we should. It was obvious we were hungry after that. So, we had something serious to discuss: What are the world’s best sweets?

The opinions were different. While Vlado had a love for biscuits, Attila and I were more cake-guys. When I mentioned one thing the guy’s eyes lit up: “Raffaello!”

“Bro, Raffaello is legit! It’s elite candy!”, Vlado responded. We were all agreeing that Raffaello is the best candy out there.

I never believed that you can make a healthy version that tastes just as good. Until I found coconut butter. Just add some sweetness and the stuff tastes exactly like Raffaello crème.

With just a few more ingredients and 5 min of time you can make your own clean version of Raffaello.
