Snickerway Truffles #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday to you!  Today is a fun mission with #SundaySupper!  We had to create a goody for Halloween.  There are such a wide variety of things to make, but one thing sticks out to me, and that is chocolate.  Yes I love the sugary treats, like suckers, candycorn, laughy taffy, nerds and more.  But my heart goes out to chocolate.  But as much as I LOVE Halloween candy I can’t really have it near me.  I can pound down a bag in no time.  Not only will I get a tummy ache, but ohh the guilt is the worse.  So what does one do when you need chocolate and candy?  Make your own healthy, guilt-free chocolaty treats that are not only amazing tasting (trust me they are) but also gluten free and vegan.  Let me introduce to you my Snickerway Truffles!

Snickerway Truffles
This is one of the BEST chocolate treats I have made. Rich chocolaty flavor, creamy caramel and the best thing ever created, peanut butter, oh my!! They melt in your mouth! I am in love with these little balls of goodness!! I decided to call them Snickerways because these truffles are a mix between a Snickers Bar and a Milky Way. Both chocolate bars that are near dear to my heart. I took a batch to work and they agreed Snickerways was the perfect name!!

Not only are these melt in your mouth good, they are a breeze to whip together! I made two batches in less than 25 minutes. These are made with Peanut Butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, Caramel Extract and Maple Syrup. All these combined together make the ultimate chocolate treat!!

Snickerway Truffle Ingredients

I actually made the first batch using some caramel extract that I got on Amazon and it had a coffee taste. The 2nd batch I usedJR Watkins Caramel Extract and there came the Milky Way taste.  I swear every week when I make something for #SundaySupper I always have to re-make it.  The first time it never comes out.  So weird because that normally doesn’t happen to me on the other recipes.  Crazy!   Well, I am just happy it turned out!  :)

For a little added crunch I used roasted salted peanuts. I just chopped them up fine and added it to my batter. I love the salt added to the chocolate. It just ups the level of flavor in the truffles. I added all of my ingredients in a bowl, mix together and rolled into a ball. I keep my truffles in the freezer, but they are good in the fridge too. If you freeze them, just let them sit out for a minute or two and pop in your mouth, they will simply melt in your mouth and in your heart! So if you like chocolate, peanut butter and caramel I highly recommend these little chocolates. I ate so many of them, however they maybe guilt-free, just limit your self to a few, not half a batch like I did. I couldn’t help it, they are darn good!  Plus I had to test them.  Ok that’s an excuse!

Oh my gosh, I happen to have a few of these little Guys left and I think I need one or two or three of them. What? I have been good today! :)  It’s almost Halloween, so as my Husband eats his Grand Bars and M&M’s, I’ll eat my truffles.  I feel better about it!

Do you make a special treat for Halloween?  I don’t have a Halloween tradition, but I think these truffles will be the new tradition!

I can’t wait to see what kind of Halloween goodies everyone makes. Be sure to check them out!

Have a super great day!!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  1. Bravo, Jennifer! You are going to be the most popular gal in the food blogosphere amongst vegans and gluten-free folk. And even those of us who imbibe in the “regular” stuff. Your truffles do look and sound very dee-li-cious!
