Bliss Bites by Kate Bradley ($14.99, Hardie Grant, 2018)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 3 1/2 oz crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 oz raw, dark chocolate, melted and cooled

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients, except melted chocolate, in a food processor or blender and pulse together until everything is combined.
  2. Line a tray with baking paper. Take about 1 tablespoon of mixture at a time and roll it into 1/2 inch balls.
  3. Dip each ball into melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drain off. Refrigerate balls until chocolate has set.
  4. Transfer to an airtight container and store in refrigerator or freezer. Truffles will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge or a couple of months in the freezer.

Notes

If you like, sprinkle a few sea salt flakes onto each truffle after dipping them in chocolate. It makes them look even lovelier.
