Cookie Dough Protein Truffles
1/4c natural peanut butter
1/3c erythritol or stevia
5 tbsp water
1/4c Amber Lyn Chocolates Sugar Free Dark Chunks, chopped. (10% off code: cleanNdirtytreats)
1/4c Amber Lyn Chocolates Sugar Free Dark Chunks, melted. (slightly more may be needed if you like to swim the truffles into melted chocolate ;))
Few squares of Amber Lyn No Sugar Added White Chocolate Chunks for drizzling.
In a large bowl, combine all of the filling ingredients except for the chocolate. If it is really dry, add another tbsp of water. Just make sure you don’t add too much or else it will be more goop than a bar.
Stir in chocolate chunks.
Place onto parchment paper. Divide into 10 sections and roll into balls. Refrigerate for an hour to firm up. It will taste just like cookie dough!
Once the truffle balls are firm, begin making the outer shell:
Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl by microwaving in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
Dip the balls into the chocolate, and place on a parchment paper lined pan (or anything that is non-stick).
Melt the white chocolate in the same fashion, and place into a ziploc baggie. Cut the corner to drizzle a pretty design onto your truffle 🙂 Refrigerate to firm up, then enjoy.
