Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles: FRUIT SWEETENED (c)


I hope your day is going amazing thus far! If not, think of something your thankful for and I'm sure you'll feel great ;).... hey it could even be that you found this great recipe! ;)

So yesterday, I headed to an outdoor festival with some friends. Yes its cold in my neck of the woods, but its still great fun to be outdoors! The ladies decided to bring food and snacks for the group to try... A few of the folks coming are Vegan and I personally do not eat or drink anything with processed sugar, so I decided to make some Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles and some Vegan Chocolate Walnut Truffles! They turned out AMAZING....

What you need for:

Sharron's Gourmet Veffles (Vegan Truffles) (c) :

1 cup Raw Peanuts or 1 cup of Raw Walnuts*
1/2 cup of hydrated dates (about 4 or 5) pitted
Dash of Celtic Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt
1/2 tsp of Raw Coconut Crystal by Coconut Secrets
1/2 tsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp of Organic Flax Seed Oil

For coating:
Vegan Chocolate Chips
Shredded Coconut
Hemp Seeds

To prepare:
Combine all filing ingredients in a food processor, blender or VitaMixer.  Scoop about a tablespoon size and roll into balls.  Set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt down the vegan chocolate chips.  Dip each rolled ball into the warm chocolate coating all sides.  Set each truffle onto wax paper or spray foil with no stick spray.  Top each Truffle with shredded coconut and hemp seeds. 

I made a couple without Chocolate and a couple without Coconut for variety!
Place tray in fridge to harden chocolate for about 1 hour.  SERVE!

*Makes about 10 Truffles. 

I made 10 Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles and 10 Chocolate Walnut Truffles

I like food that "presents" a certain way.. I'm a sucker for all things gourmet, fancy and fabulous! I of course served the truffles on a fancy dish!  I am DEFINITELY making these again for the holidays so will have pics of the Truffle Presentation soon!
