Cranberry Pecan Truffles
These truffles were a hit and the perfect sweet treat or snack. I made them before my family came into town for Thanksgiving and I was honestly a little shocked at how well they went over. They make a great holiday treat or gift for loved ones.
These are packed full of antioxidants and dietary fiber with a little bit of plant-based fats and only 6 INGREDIENTS! Dietary fiber is essential to feeling satisfied and curbing cravings, so you won't find yourself over-indulging in this holiday treat. I think we all could use a win like that this time of year.
1 packed cup of pitted Medjool dates
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup dried cranberries, chopped
Pinch of salt
1 cup Enjoy Life Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 tsp refined coconut oil
Process dates in a food processor until completely broken down.
In a medium size bowl, add pecans, cranberries, and salt. Add processed dates to the pecans and cranberries. Combine thoroughly with a stiff spatula.
Scoop about a half-tablespoon portion and roll into a ball using your hands. Place on a lined baking sheet and continue until the mixture is used up. Place baking sheet into the fridge.
In a small bowl, combine chocolate chips and 1 tsp of coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir. Repeat this until the chocolate is completely melted.
Remove the cranberry pecan balls from the fridge and grab a fork. One or two at a time, dip the balls into the chocolate, remove using the fork, and gently tap it on the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate. Place chocolate covered ball back on the baking sheet. Continue until all have been covered in chocolate. Sprinkle each ball with a pinch of course ground kosher salt or flaky sea salt. Pop back in the fridge.
Once the chocolate hardens, serve or store in an airtight container for several weeks.
