Strawberry Creme Truffles. Streak Day 41.

Wednesday, April 16, 2014




emoticon Treats are allowed in my home. Having healthy treats are oh, so wonderful. Making HEALTHY TREATS for Dear Hubby helps to keep junk food in the store. It keeps my will power strong as one treat from time to time satisfies any cravings.







Hubby came home with a big basket of strawberries. They are ripe, in season from the local neighborhood growers. emoticon They smell so good, sweet, sugary and delectable. Yum. I found this recipe on mywholefoodlife.com and I knew he would love them. It's so quick and easy to make I whipped up a batch. Yum.

Strawberry Creme Truffles

Ingredients

For the filling:
1 cup coconut butter
1 cup sliced strawberries
2 T maple syrup
For the chocolate:
1 cup dark chocolate chips Or RAW chocolate
3 T almond milk

Instructions

In a food processor, mix the filling ingredients together very well.
Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop small balls of the filling onto a lined baking sheet. If the filling seems to soft, stick it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Stick the baking sheet, with all the formed balls in the freezer to firm up.
While the balls are firming up, melt the chocolate.
Using a double boiler method, melt the chocolate chips and the milk.
Stir constantly until all the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth.
Working quickly, using two forks, roll the balls into the chocolate and place them back onto the lined baking sheet.
Stick the finished balls back in the freezer to firm up. It should take about 30 to 60 minutes.

These can be stored in the fridge or freezer. They should keep for a couple weeks in the fridge and a few months in the freezer. If you store them in the freezer, they may be slightly hard. They should be perfect after a minute or two though. Enjoy!








There is nothing bad in the ingredients. No MSG or things that create harsh side effects of intense cravings. You have to love the satisfaction of eating healthier treats.






Hugs.

    Sounds great - I just love strawberries and your recipe looks delicious. We've had them in season here for the past month or so. I like to make them with the small fluffy shells and cool whip. There is very little calories in it and it is so delicious. i have to control myself and not go back for seconds.

    That sounds so good, it makes me wish I wasn't allergic to strawberries. I'd have to substitute blueberries. Having made candy before, though, I found that once the filling is frozen, you can bag the balls of filling and coat them when you get the chance. That way, you can wait a couple days if you want. Also, you can coat the filling in small batches, instead of doing it all at once.

I've never used coconut butter. We used marshmallow creme, which you can make yourself, but it does contain corn syrup and sugar, along with egg whites. I've always just melted the chocolate without adding any other ingredients. Does the almond milk make it stiffer?

    OMG that looks heavenly!

Question - coconut butter??? Is that coconut oil? Or is there an Earth Balance vegan butter type thing made of coconut?
