Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

Yeilds: about 20 truffles

Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Oil-Free, Nut-free, Vegan (of course!)

Need a festive treat for the holidays? These Chocolate Peppermint Truffles are the perfect goodies to share! Made with simple, plant-based ingredients, these truffles are healthier than most truffles you will find. Using Japanese sweet potato as the base, and adding a little bit of maple syrup for sweetness, these truffles will certainly be sweet, but no guilt is needed when you indulge!

How to make:

  1. Line a freezer-safe baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper.
  2. Crush the candy canes, then set aside 1/4 of the crushed candy canes for topping the truffles.
  3. Mix all of the ingredients (except for 1/4 of the crushed candy canes) in a large bowl, then roll the dough into one inch balls.
  4. Place the truffles onto the lined baking sheet/plate, then top them evenly with the remaining 1/4 of the crushed candy canes.
  5. Freeze the truffles for at least one to two hours to set.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

*Store the truffles in the freezer, NOT in the refrigerator or else they will “melt”
