I CREATED SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
a.k.a. vegan, no-bake (rather healthy) snickers truffles
Snickers are the only chocolate-bars I kinda miss, but I think these are an adequate substitute. And there’s only 4 ingredients in them!
for about 10-12 truffles you’ll need roughly
- 1/2 cup dates
- 3/4 roasted, unsalted peanuts
- a pinch of salt
- 2-3oz dark chocolate
Blend the dates and about half of the peanuts and the salt in a food processor until you have a sticky mass. Knead in the rest of the peanuts and form little balls. Melt the chocolate (I did that in the microwave), roll your balls in the chocolate and let it dry.
I make these too, but I use milk chocolate or even white chocolate (yes, dark chocolate is healthier, but a small amount is fine. remember moderation is key) you can try yogurt too and freeze it. try adding almonds, cashews, granola, fruits, anything! :) experiment! even protein powder, and you can blend some strawberries with the protein powder with almonds :)
