This is is an insane raw dessert, definitely one to impress the friends with!!!  Once you start to make raw desserts, you will be hooked, AND, the guilt is mitigated by the fact that you are getting all of those fantastic raw ingredients.  Raw cacao is filled with powerful antioxidants, but lost once you cook them.  So go raw and enjoy the goodness!
