Nut Butter Truffles


2013/03/26 by nikkiledford

If you made my truffles from last week, and you thought to yourself, “what else can I do with all this delicious ganache?” Well, do I have the answer for YOU!

Nut Butter Truffles

2 packs dark chocolate chips (70%, mine was from whole foods)
1 can coconut milk
1/2 -1 c. nut butter (i used freshly made almond and cashew butter)
sea salt

small baking cups arranged on a baking sheet

  1. In a small pot, heat the 1 c. coconut milk until hot but not boiling.
  2. In a small metal bowl, pour one package of chocolate chips.
  3. Add hot milk and stir until smooth and glassy
  4. Drop a small amount in the bottom of a baking cup. Continue with the rest of the cups.
  5. Roll up small pieces of nut butter and place them in the middle of the cup, leaving some room around the sides.
  6. Make the rest of the ganache.
  7. Using a spoon, drop the ganache on the nut butter and gently pat down to fill the cup. Continue with the rest of cups and chocolate.
  8. Sprinkle some sea salt on top.
  9. Put the tray in the fridge for the truffles to set.
  10. EAT (and maybe share)

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
