Adjectives fail me…
I wish I could describe these truffles with the extravagant adjectives in perfume or wine descriptions. These little bites of bliss deserve more than the introduction of downright delicious.
I’ll give it a try:
Intensely silky, the deep chocolate base boasts undertones of caramel and vanilla, highlighted by the crisp and fruity character of pomegranate.
That sounds pretty good, right?
Paleo truffles, with just two ingredients!
Warning: you may be sorry after I introduce you to the following ingredients. Because once you invite them into your life, you will find it extraordinarily difficult to uninvite them.
Love Bean Fudge is dark chocolate fudge in a jar. A silky, profoundly intense chocolate experience. Even better, it boasts the benefits of coconut oil! Paleo-friendly, it’s sweetened with mineral-rich coconut nectar (think maple syrup from a coconut tree).
Love Bean Fudge offers different varieties, and I used the Essentially Raw version for this recipe. The ingredients include: Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Coconut Nectar, Organic Ecuadorian Cacao Powder, Organic Vanilla Bean Powder.
You can add Love Bean fudge to smoothies, put it on ice cream, melt it and drizzle it over fruit, use it as a crappy-ingredient-free Nutella substitute, or use it for frosting.
Love Bean Fudge – Essentially Raw is available here.
Organic Pomegranate Powder is exactly that – powdered pomegranate seeds! Divinely sweet and tart, it boasts a range of concentrated phytonutrients including folate, vitamin C and potassium.
See my post 10 Ways to Use Pomegranate Powder for more inspiration utilizing this superfood.
Nativas Organic Freeze-Dried Pomegranate Powder is available here at Thrive Market (which is like a synthesis of a health food Costco/Amazon Prime) or Amazon here. I recommend registering for Thrive because they have the best prices.
- The fudge should have a thick, malleable consistency. If it is a hot day, you may need to place the jar in the fridge for 20 minutes to firm. It's easy to work with, just experiment until the consistency is optimal.
- Pour a small amount (a few tablespoons) of pomegranate powder into a small bowl. Use a teaspoon measure to scoop out a teaspoon of fudge, then roll it into a ball with your hands. Place the ball into the pomegranate powder, roll around, and then place the truffle on a plate.
- You can make as many as you like - ¼ cup of the fudge will yield 12 small truffles. Of course, you can make the truffles larger if desired.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Let soften slightly at room temperature before serving.
