For all of the white chocolate lovers out there, these healthy white chocolate truffles make a great gift – they are that good!  Just remember to keep them refrigerated!

 

Ingredients

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

 

Method

  • 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 (I mixed mine in my Thermomix).
  • 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

Spice ‘em up

Macadamia centre

I rolled mine around a macadamia nut, because I love them!
