Sweet & Salty Truffles
Sweet, salty, almond buttery, chocolaty truffles ..basically all of my favorite things in one. I incorporated one of my favorite, real food bars into these. They are called YES bars, because they are that good, and so are these truffles.
1/2 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup almond butter
1 Black Sesame Sea Salt YES bar
1/4 cup maple syrup
salt to taste
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Crumble up the YES bar into small pieces and place in a medium sized bowl. Add in the cashew butter, almond butter and maple syrup, and salt and stir until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
2. Place the mixture in the fridge for a couple of hours to set (or just place it in the freezer for a little while if you are impatient like me). The mixture needs to be firm enough to scoop and roll into balls.
3. Roll the almond butter mixture into balls. (It should make around 12- 13). Melt the chocolate chips using 15 second increments. Once the chocolate chips are melted, dip the truffles into the melted chocolate. Then let the chocolate set. Store them in the fridge and pop them out when you are ready to eat them!
