Here is a delicious (and not-too-bad-for-you) recipe for Homemade Granola Truffles. These truffles are easy to make with just four simple ingredients and make for a perfect sweet treat – the hardest part is trying to limit yourself to only eating one!
Recipe courtesy of Viki’s Granola
1 2/3 cups heavy cream
7 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound semisweet chocolate, cut or broken into shards
12oz bag of Viki’s Granola for rolling truffle
Place cream and butter into a saucepan. Allow butter to melt on medium heat, stirring the whole time. Raise the heat just until the cream mixture comes to a boil.
Remove saucepan from heat, add the chocolate and stir until it is completely melted. Continue stirring until the mixtures thickens and cools a bit. Cover mixture with cellophane and place in refrigerator. Allow at least 2 hours to cool and thicken for at least 2 hours but mix 3 to 4 times during that time.
To form truffles use a small melon baller or spoon to scoop chocolate mixture into the palm of your hand. Roll into a ball then roll in your favorite Viki’s Granola. Place completed balls on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate before serving.
Viki’s Original Granola is a blend of gluten-free oats, organic honey, almonds, pecans and unsweetened coconut. MSRP: $5.49 / 12oz www.vikisfoods.com
