Four Ingredient Chocolate Almond Truffles

 

Four Ingredient Chocolate Almond Truffles are satisfying, healthy and easy to make.  If you’re a chocolate lover, but with some dietary restrictions, you know that finding a dessert that fits all categories is difficult.  These truffles fit the bill, plus, they’re Paleo, there’s no refined sugar and they’re gluten-free.  There’s another big benefit, they’re no-bake, so they’re safe and kids will love scooping out the truffle mix from the bowl.  Remember, these are “n0-bake” so if you’re getting assistance in the kitchen, make sure they have clean hands.  Our recipe calls for coconut milk powder which may not be in your typical grocery store, but is readily available online. Roll in some crushed almonds if you don’t like them sticky.
