Never eat a candy bar again. That sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?
While I can’t control the candy bar industry, what I can tell you is that after eating these truffles, you won’t want to reach for that candy bar again. These truffles are smooth, velvety rich, and satisfying. They incorporate healthy ingredients and they don’t leave you with a sugar high (or sugar crash later). And, they’re easy to make!
Depending on your ingredients, this recipe can be gluten-free, dairy-free, raw, and vegan.
3/4 cup avocado
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/3 cup chopped dried apricots
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 - 1/4 cup raw, unfiltered honey (if vegan, use another sweetener of your choice)
To get a little fancy, add some vanilla, cardamom, or cinnamon.
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until sticky. Form into balls and roll in cocoa powder.
Makes 12-15 truffles.
