Vegan Dark Chocolate Almond Truffles
I love giving candy to loved ones for Valentine’s Day! Now, you could just go buy a box of chocolates, but it is so much more special when you take the time to make those chocolates with good ingredients! The recipe I am sharing with you today is super easy and only contains 2 ingredients (both of which can be found at Fresh and Natural Foods), so no excuses not to try it! Just almond butter, and Luv dairy free, sugar free chocolate and you are on your way to indulgent chocolate deliciousness (but without the sugar, gluten or dairy). These are chocolates you can feel good about eating or giving for gifts. These are heart healthy too, which is perfect because February is heart health month!

- Melt the vegan dark chocolate in the top of a double boiler.
- Pour 6 oz into a bowl, and mix together with 2/3 cup almond butter. Place into the freezer until it is firm enough to scoop (about 20 minutes), and scoop out balls (rolling them with your hands until they are somewhat smooth). Place on a parchment lined tray. Place in the freezer until hard, about 15 minutes.
- Dip into the remaining dark chocolate (I like to set on a fork to drain the excess off) and set back on the tray. Place back into the freezer, and let the chocolate set (about 5 minutes). Enjoy!
