Strawberry Creme Truffles

You know those strawberry creme Easter confections in the pretty shiny wrapper that calls out to you as you walk near them... yeah, those ones...well we don't eat those any more since we cleaned up our diet...BUT...

we did find a clean recipe for something that, in our opinion, reminds us of those days gone by.

Strawberry Creme Truffles

    For the filling:
  • 1 cup coconut butter NOT COCONUT OIL!
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 2 T maple syrup  WE USED AGAVE
  • For the chocolate:
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 T almond milk or milk of choice
  • In a food processor, mix the filling ingredients together very well.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop small balls of the filling onto a line a baking sheet. If the filling seems to soft, stick it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Stick the baking sheet, with all the formed balls in the freezer to firm up.
  • While the balls are firming up, melt the chocolate.
  • Using a double boiler method, melt the chocolate chips and the milk.
  • Stir constantly until all the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Working quickly, using two forks, roll the balls into the chocolate and place them back onto the lined baking sheet.
  • Stick the finished balls back in the freezer to firm up. It should take about 30 to 60 minutes.
These can be stored in the fridge or freezer. They should keep for a couple weeks in the fridge and a few months in the freezer. If you store them in the freezer, they may be slightly hard. They should be perfect after a minute or two though. Enjoy!

See the flecks of the strawberries in the truffle?

So pretty...all natural coloring and not a drop of artificial!

You won't know how good they are until you try them!

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Romans 3:23-24
