trinity truffles

I always get the "calico balls" for dessert at Main Squeeze.. a local health food cafe.. but it's still too cold for a fun walk downtown, so I decided to try to make them myself. These are super rich, simple, and disappear very very quickly.

Ingredients (makes only three 1.5" balls.. make more at your own risk!)
2 heaping tbsp of almond butter (Main Squeeze uses peanut butter, which is delicious also)
1 tbsp honey (I used a thick, raw honey)
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp shredded coconut
topping - I used cocoa powder.. but you can use anything you want here.. coconut shreds, ground flax seeds, sesame seeds.. I'm sure you're thinking of something.

Mix mix mix.. then form into balls. Here's what I should've done. PUT THEM IN THE FRIDGE! to harden up a bit. Otherwise, they're really soft and light, and GONE before you know it. A harder truffle would make for something a little more resistant for your teeth.


  1. I made these the other night and they were fantastic! I tripled the recipe, but they still vanished before the next day.

  2. MMMMMMMMM,..What more can I say??
