Snickerway Truffles
 
Prep time
Total time
 
A healthy, creamy, chocolaty, melt in your mouth gluten free vegan chocolate treat that tastes like a combination of a Snickers Bar and a Milky Way.
Serves: 20 truffles
Ingredients
  • ½ cup peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter and Co. The Bees Knees)
  • 1 tsp. caramel extract
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. salted peanuts, finely chopped
Instructions
  1. Line a plate or half a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add peanut butter, caramel extract, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Mix until combined. Add cocoa powder and mix until combined. Knead in peanuts. Note: If you do not use salted peanuts, add a dash of salt to the dough.
  3. Take about a teaspoon size piece of dough and roll into a ball. Do the same with remaining dough. Place balls onto prepared plate and place in the refrigerator to firm up.
  4. Once slightly firm. You can store your balls in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 - 4 months or in the refrigerator for up to a few weeks.
