Makes about 24 truffles:
For the dough:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or chocolate shavings
For the coating:
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 Tablespoons Organic coconut oil (I use Trader Joes)
- 4 Tablespoons Cocoa powder
- Cream together the butter, brown and powdered sugars.
- Mix in the vanilla, salt, and almond flour.
- Fold the chocolate chips into the batter.
- Roll ounces of dough into 1-inch balls and put them into the refrigerator to chill.
- Melt the chocolate chips for the coating in over a burner.
- Add in the coconut oil and stir until smooth and runny.
- One by one, dip the chilled dough balls into the melted chocolate and turn them to coat.
- Roll the melted chocolate coated dough balls in the cocoa powder.
- Place the truffles onto a non-stick surface to cool.
- Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Serve at room temperature.
It was so easy and wonderful! Serve with coffee. I like to take a little bite and then a sip of coffee so the chocolate melts. Yum! CC
