Nuts & Sea Salt Truffles


Trick or Treat yo'self to these Nuts & Sea Salt Truffles this Halloween! They're rich, decadent, and made with clean, plant-based ingredients. Perfect for you and the kiddos! Thanks Melissa (a.k.a. @somuchyumblog) for this spooktacular recipe.


Ingredients:

2 Nuts & Sea Salt Squares
½ cup raw slivered almonds
½ cup pitted dates, soaked in warm water for 5-10 minutes then drained
⅓ cup almond butter
1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips
1 tsp coconut oil

Recipe: 

  1. In a food processor, process the Squares and almonds until meal consistency is achieved. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the dates to the food processor and process until only small pieces remain. Add almond butter and continue to process until combined.
  3. Add Squares/almond mixture back to food processor and pulse until combined. The dough will look somewhat crumbly but should hold together well when pressed between your fingers.
  4. Roll/form dough into balls (~2 teaspoons per ball). Place on parchment paper and chill in the freezer while you make the chocolate coating.
  5. In a glass bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth (mine needed about 1:30 total).
  6. Remove balls from the freezer one at a time and dunk into the chocolate. Remove with a fork, tap off excess chocolate, and place back on parchment paper. Repeat with all truffles. Chill finished truffles in fridge or freezer for at least 20 minutes or until chocolate is set.
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
