Healthy White Chocolate Truffles
For all of the White Chocolate lovers out there, this recipe is for you! You could also make these as a gift – they are that good! Just remember to keep them refrigerated!
100 gram of cacao butter, melted
100 gram coconut oil, melted
160 gram (1/2 cup) of sweetener (Maple syrup or rice malt syrup)
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
50 gram (1 cup) of coconut, desiccated
400 gram (4 cups) of almond meal
Mix the cacao butter, coconut oil, sweetener and vanilla together until well combined. If the weather is cool you may need to do this over a very low heat (or in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water).
Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well until combined.
Check the constancy of the mix, if it is not firm enough to roll into balls add a little more almond meal.
If you are feeling lazy, or would prefer you can press this into a slice tin lined with baking paper. I rolled/topped mine with toasted desiccated coconut. Either way, pop into the freezer right away until firm. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
Variations: No cacao butter = Replace with coconut oil.
Spice ‘em up = Add in a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and a teaspoon of mixed spice.
Macadamia centre = I rolled mine around a macadamia nut, because I love them!
