Paleo Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt

Hello, darlings. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and if you're like me, you have no taste for cloying milk chocolate confections, never mind the roulette of trying to pick one from the box that isn't filled with orange cream.

You can of course purchase from an artisan chocolate maker, such as Moonstruck, a favorite in my hometown of Portland, Oregon. Or you can make your own and choose only the flavors you love.

I opted for sea salt and cacao nib crusted and cinnamon-cayenne dusted truffles. The fillings are the same and are both paleo and vegan. They would be raw as well, but I use a roasted almond butter.

yields 2 dozen

1/2 cup roasted, salted almond butter
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup cacao nibs
sea salt

1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
pinch cayenne pepper
pinch sea salt

  1. Combine the filling ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Place in a shallow dish in the refrigerator. Stir occasionally and chill until nearly set. The consistency should allow you to easily scoop and shape into balls.
  2. Remove the chocolate in one-teaspoon portions and use a pair of spoons to shape roughly into a ball. For the cacao nib and sea salt version, sprinkle with a few flakes of sea salt and then roll in the cacao nibs. 
  3. Alternately, combine the cinnamon, cocoa, cayenne, and sea salt in a shallow dish and roll the truffles to coat. 
  4. You may need to pause mid-way through the process and chill for another few minutes. 
  5. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
