Decadent and rich, these fudge truffles are vegan, paleo and refined sugar free! With just 5 ingredients and less than 20 minutes of chilling time, these fudge truffles are a quick, healthy and delicious fudge treat!
It’s day 5 of the “7 Days of Chocolate” series and we are moving right along!
After 5 days of nothing but chocolate recipes, I am starting to wonder if I can still claim to be a “health nut.” Health nuts can be chocolate addicts too, right? I swear to you that I eat more than Paleo Frosted Brownies and White Chocolate Raspberry Cups, though that point might be hard to drive home when you see today and tomorrow’s chocolate recipes. True story, tomorrow’s chocolate recipe is single handedly responsible for my lack of abs.
Ninja likes fudge. Let me rephrase that – Ninja loves fudge. It’s his go-to ice cream topping, and he will gladly fork over the $4 it costs for one tiny sized jar. Doesn’t he realize that I can [almost] buy almond butter with that? Sheesh, what a selfish man.
In all honesty I can understand Ninja’s fudge obsession. While I don’t eat the processed store-bought kind anymore, I do tend to go a bit crazy on my own homemade version [the frosting from those Paleo Frosted Brownies chills into a ganache-like fudge. YUM].
So I guess I can’t harp too much on Ninja’s obsession with fudge, especially since I have just as bad of an obsession with it. The only difference is that my version doesn’t cost $4 a bottle….
In fact, these fudge truffles are pretty cheap when you break it all down. Then again, that cost efficiency goes out the window when you eat an entire batch in a span on two days. Soo not the point here though. Ok, maybe that kind of is the point, but let’s move on.
I was feeling sorry for myself the other night when Ninja was
inhaling eating his ice cream piled high with fudge, so instead of shooting lasers at him with my eyeballs I decided to make myself something fudgy, decadent, and not made with 1,000 artificial ingredients [looking at you store-bought fudge].
So, what’s the 411 on these little bites of deliciousness? Well for one, they are vegan and paleo, which means there is no grain, no dairy, and no refined sugar. Take that store-bought fudge and your long list of ridiculous ingredients!
These fudge truffles also only need 5 ingredients and less than 20 minutes to chill, which equals almost instant fudge satisfaction. Ninja’s so proud.
That bite though…
Though these are truffles, they aren’t the filled kind [think Lindor]. While those are pretty tasty [ok so really tasty], I think these fudge truffles are just as decadent and rich. They still melt in your mouth and send you into chocolate bliss, which is what a truffle is supposed to do, right?
I hope you’ll whip these quick fudge truffles up when that chocolate hankering hits. Better yet, I hope you ask someone to “be yours” this Valentine’s Day with a big box of these! That is of course only if you can actually get them to your loved one without eating them all first….
Also – today I am linking up for the first time with Jess for Foodie Friday!
