Cacao Clusters Chocolate Truffles – 3 Ways

By Sara McGlothlin

I love a chocolate truffle. I remember every holiday season, my best friend’s mom would keep a bowl of Ferrero Rochers in the living room. I would sneak one every time I walked by, too tempted by the beautiful display and gold foil. Since then, I have Healthified a lot of truffle recipes, but I don’t think any have been as easy as this one.

Using Gratisfied Cacao Granola Clusters saves you steps, time, and ingredients. The clusters are already made with high quality organic cacao powder, seeds and other superfoods. All you have to do is blend them with some dates and coconut oil. If that is where you want to stop, by all means, they will be delicious, but if you want to take it up a notch, simply melt some chocolate in the microwave and coat. There are both white chocolate and dark chocolate options below!

  • Using your hands, roll the dough into balls of desired size. Place the balls on a cutting board, plate, or parchment lined baking sheet. Do this until all of the dough is used up. Transfer the balls to the freezer for at least 1 hour to chill.
  • If coating the truffles in the dark chocolate or white chocolate: combine the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips with the coconut oil in a microwaveable safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute, then use a fork to stir vigorously until creamy and blended.
  • One by one, dip the chilled truffles into the melted chocolate coating and place back on the cutting board, plate, or baking sheet. Do this until all of the truffles are coated (you might have some coating left over). For the white chocolate, you might have to do two coats. Place the truffles back in the freezer to set, at least one hour. Keep in the freezer or the refrigerator .
