Chocolate at heart.
There are few things I enjoy more than chocolate. If you’ve looked around on this site before, you’ll know that fact through and through. Chocolate for breakfast, chocolate for a little snack, and when I’m pregnant, a little chocolate cake for dinner… (Who am I kidding, I don’t need to be pregnant to eat cake for dinner!)
Dark chocolate peppermint truffles.
Are you a fellow homemade candy lover? Here are a few more of my favorite treats. They’re all delicious, and surprisingly healthy! Minus that walnut roca… still working on that!
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Dark Chocolate Peppermint Truffles
Free grain, gluten, eggs, and dairy.
For the truffles:
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter or other almond butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup coconut milk (I like to make my own)
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
- dash of sea salt
For the glaze:
- 6 tablespoons dairy-free chocolate (I like to use my homemade chocolate chunks)
- 6 tablespoons coconut milk (+ more to make it drizzly enough)
Melt peanut butter, honey, and coconut in small saucepan over low heat.
Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder and peppermint extract.
Roll into teaspoon-sized balls and place in the freezer for about 1/2 hour, or until firm.
In small saucepan, melt glaze ingredients.
Remove from truffles from freezer and glaze.
Return to freezer to solidify glaze.
Store any leftovers there might be in the fridge.
