Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (the macros for this specific recipe were calculated using Silk Unsweetened Almond & Coconut Milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g (1/4 cup) maple syrup
  • 80 g + 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Prep Time 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time 1 hour (chilling)
  • Difficulty Easy

Instructions

  1. Warm the milk in the microwave or over the stove. Using a fork, whisk in the maple syrup, salt, and vanilla.

  2. Add the 80 g of cocoa powder and stir until the mixture comes together to form a thick paste. (This takes some effort!)

  3. Lay a sheet of plastic wrap over the truffle mixture so it doesn’t dry out, and chill in the fridge for an hour. With dry hands, roll into 10 g balls (about the size of a standard bouncy ball).

  4. Sprinkle the truffles with the reserved cocoa powder to finish. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
