White Christmas Truffles
For all of the white chocolate lovers out there, these healthy white chocolate truffles make a wonderful Christmas treat. You could also make these as a gift – they are that good! Just remember to keep them refrigerated, though!
100 gram (½ cup) cacao butter, melted
100 gram (½ cup) coconut oil, melted
160 gram (½ cup) sweetener (Maple syrup or rice malt syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
50 gram (1 cup) coconut, desiccated
400 gram (4 cups) almond meal
Mix the cacao butter, coconut oil, sweetener and vanilla together until well combined. If the weather is cool you may need to do this over a very low heat (or in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water).
Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well until combined.
Check the consistency of the mix, if it is not firm enough to roll into small balls add a little more almond meal.
Set as they are or roll in toasted desiccated coconut.
Pop into the freezer right away until firm.
Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
TIP - If you are feeling lazy, or would prefer, you can press this into a slice tin lined with baking paper and cut into squares once set.
I rolled mine around a macadamia nut because I love them!
Choose rice malt as your sweetener.
