Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles (Paleo)

Last week I was planning a meal for a new client who keeps kosher and is on the paleo diet. The couple wanted a sweet treat after their meal so I was on a mission to find the perfect dessert! I thought chocolate could be a good start. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t like chocolate?  I found a few recipes online using ingredients like coconut milk, coconut oil and chocolate. I had to add peanut butter because, selfishly, I think it makes a dessert and it adds protein ;).  The dessert is completely dairy free and tastes just like a regular decadent truffle. It’s perfect for diets such as kosher, paleo, and just trying to be healthy.

Scoop using a pastry scoop. I used a teaspoon size but you can use a bigger one if you want. After you scoop them all, roll into balls in your hand. After, cover the truffles in cocoa nibs.
