I rolled my healthy prune truffles in a smooth chocolate shell and also almond flour. Enjoy!
- 1 cup prunes, pitted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons cacao paste
- pinch of salt
- 3 tbs cacao butter
- 3 tbs chocolate chips (Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
- place prunes in a food processor or high speed blender and pulse until smooth. If your prunes are hard, you may need to soak them for 1-2 hours in water and heat them just a bit until soft.
- in a double boiler melt the cacao paste
- add the cacao paste and vanilla extract to the prunes and pulse to combine ingredients
- roll the mixture into 1" balls then chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes
- to make the chocolate shell, melt the cacao butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler until smooth
- remore truffles from the freezer and dip each one, one at the time in the melted chocolate and place them in a pan lined with parchment paper
- place truffles in the fridge for just 10 minutes so the chocolate hardens and then store at room temperature. I coated my truffles also with almond flour. If you do this, there is no need to place them in the fridge.
