These Festive Healthy 3-ingredient Cranberry Truffles are the perfect treat for the festive period!
Guys! It’s officially the festive period! Christmas shopping, loads of presents and of course… loadssss of chocolate!!
You are probably thinking why are you using cranberries to make a sweet recipe? Aren’t cranberries supposed to be just used for cranberry sauce or juice? Nope! If you try this recipe – believe me, you will know why I have used cranberries to make these chocolate truffles.
Basically, I treated the cranberries the same way I would treat dried fruit, they bind well and are also a good healthier sweetness alternative.
How To Make Cranberry Truffles:
You will need:
1. Dried cranberries (sweetened with fruit juice)
2. Dark chocolate at least 80% dark!
3. Almond flour
Now, if you can’t find almond flour in the stores, simply make your own, it’s super easy!
Simply put blanched flaked almonds in a high-speed blender or a food processor and whizz for like a minute until it resembles a fine ground and you are done! It’s that easy.
To make these cranberries truffles, simply blend together the almond flour and cranberries, it should form a fine soft ground which can be easily shaped into bite-sized shapes.
Melt your chocolate, then simply dip the cranberry balls into the chocolate until covered. Chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes until set, and enjoy!
