I have recently discovered a passion for making chocolate truffles.
They are so incredibly easy to make, it's ridiculous! All you need is a mold, some chocolate, and something to fill it with!
I will be posting two recipes for truffles. First up: Almond Butter Truffles. Why? Because I love nut butters, and this is a great alternative to peanut butter!
Almond Butter Truffles
Makes approximately 16 truffles
1 c. chocolate chips, melted
2 T. almond butter (I used Earth Balance's almond butter)
2 T. honey or agave nectar
1 T. powdered sugar
1 t. almond milk
Optional: luster dust
1. If using luster dust, take a small paintbrush and paint the dust on the bottom of the mold, wherever you want the chocolate to be colored. Then take a larger paintbrush and spread melted chocolate in each mold until completely covered.
2. While that is setting up, combine the almond butter, honey/agave, powdered sugar, and milk in a small bowl.
3. Please approximately a teaspoon of the almond butter mixture into each mold. Cover with melted chocolate.
4. Allow to set until chocolate is completely hardened. I placed mine in the fridge overnight, but you can also put it in the freezer to speed this process up.
5. To remove chocolates, turn mold upside down and whack it on the counter-top. Chocolates should pop right out. Store in the fridge.
What is your favorite kind of truffle?
I like fruity flavors, like raspberry and key lime!
