Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. Mix together the filling ingredients. This will give your arm a nice good workout.
  2. Place uncovered in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray your hands will cooking spray then roll the filling into small balls. Place on the parchment paper. These are rich little buggers so don't make them too large.
  4. Place uncovered in freezer for 1 hour.
  5. Just before your truffles come out of the freezer, melt the chocolate. Place the chocolate chips in a stainless steel or glass bowl and place over a pot of gently boiling water. Stir constantly until melted.
  6. Use a fork to dip the truffles in the chocolate and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to get rid of any extra chocolate. Use a toothpick to help remove from fork and place back on the parchment paper-a little trick I learned from the pioneer woman.
  7. After each truffle go ahead and sprinkle on (or roll in) your desired topping before the chocolate dries. Surprisingly, my favorite topping was the sea salt because it really seemed to balance out the sweetness of the chocolate. Enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • Sea salt is not healthier than table salt, contrary to what you may have heard. Sea salt is usually 97.5% sodium chloride (same as regular old table salt) and the minerals accounting for the rest are too insignificant to make a difference?unless you plan on consuming sea salt by the pound, in which case the health benefits from the minerals will definitely be outweighed by the negative effects of all the sodium you are consuming!

Price Tips

  • Sea salt can add a unique texture or provide bursts of salty goodness, but ONLY when it isn't being dissolved. So if you have expensive sea salt, save it for sprinkling on salads or dark chocolate cookies, don't try to use it in your pasta sauce or soup. Once sea salt dissolves, the flavor is indistinguishable from table salt from the shaker (after all, they are chemically the same thing, sodium chloride).
