So Good! Guilt Free & No Bake Chocolate Truffle Delights -Healthified

imag3573

These little morsels of deliciousness contain very little processed sugar, no flour, no butter, no cream, no eggs and there is no baking involved. Yet they still taste sooo good and will be perfect Valentine’s Gifts, Easter Gifts or just make them as aย treatย for yourself.

I have healthified them as much as I can (<<I’ve invented a new word! – It is not in the English dictionary, so I am claiming it as my own invention! hehe). But you can be free to change them up as much as you like. If you would rather use milk chocolate, go ahead! If you would rather not use nuts, take them out! If you would rather use strawberries instead of raspberries, go ahead! See….you can change them how ever you wish, to make them what you want to devour.

Using a selection of Lindt chocolate, I have created some really yummy Truffles that I want to share with you guys. This isn’t sponsored or affiliated. When I was in Tesco these were the chocolate that caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to try them.

Coconut Mint Melts

Makes 12

You will need:

12 dates – pitted

Lindt Mint Intense chocolate bar 100g

1/2 cup of desiccated coconut

2 tbsp of coconut oil – melted

Method:

  • Line a baking tray with non stick paper.
  • Break up the chocolate and put in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water. Once melted take off the heat and put aside.
  • Mix the melted coconut oil and desiccated coconut together in a bowl.
  • Take a single date, carefully open it on one side and spoon in a small amount of the coconut mix, until centre of the date is filled, then close it up.

  • Dip the stuffed dates in the melted chocolate and lay on the baking tray
  • OPTIONAL – Sprinkle the tops with some extra desiccated coconut to decorate.
  • Pop in to the fridge for 20 minutes to set and then enjoy. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.

BONUS TREAT! – I had some coconut mix and melted chocolate left over so I mixed them both together and made some minty coconut chocolate cups. I spooned the mix in to some mini cupcake cases and then put them in the fridge to set. Once set, I took them out of the cases and turned them upside down. Voila!!…another edible delight.


Chilli Chocolate Raspberry Bites

Makes 12

You will need:

12 dates – pitted

12 raspberries

Lindt Excellence dark chocolate chilli bar 100g

Method:

  • Line a baking tray with non stick paper.
  • Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water. Once melted put aside.
  • Take a single date, open carefully and put a raspberry inside and close up again. If raspberries are on the larger size, like mine, cut them in half and put half inside the date.
  • Dip the stuffed dates in the melted chocolate and lay on the baking tray.
  • OPTIONAL – sprinkle with dried chilli flakes ( I had some dried rose petals in the cupboard which I thought would look pretty)
  • Pop in to the fridge for 20 minutes to set and then enjoy. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.

BONUS TREAT! – I had some melted chilli chocolate left over so I eyed up the remainder of the raspberries and pondered what I could make. The raspberries I had were huge, so I started going through my cupboards seeing what I could find to stuff in them. A light bulb then appeared above my head when I saw the Whole Earth Peanut Butter. I could make a kind of jelly and peanut chilli chocolate truffle. I had to be careful not to split the raspberries, so I used the end of a teaspoonย handle to scoop a small amount of peanut butter out of the jar and into the centre of the raspberries. I then dipped these in the leftover chilli chocolate and placed on a lined baking tray to set in the fridge. (if you don’t have peanut butter, you can use any other nut butter, almond butter would be amazing!)

  1. I do like dates. This is a great way to like them even more. I’m very interested to try these recipes out on my family and see if I can get some healthy in them! I know the strawberries would pass and my youngest could even help stuff it. Thank you for sharing!

  2. These are the perfect DIY gifts for Valentine’s Day! I’m not sure if I like dates or not, I’ve never really had them. I’m sure I’d like them if I tried them. I want to try the peanut butter raspberry filling really bad. I can’t wait to try these!

    1. To be honest you don’t really taste the dates at all. They just give a good balance of sweetness with the bitterness of the chocolate and tartness of the raspberries. I hope you try them, let me know how you get on! enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
