The healthier and most delicious version of this classic treat.
Are you getting ready for Spring Break? Not yet? That's fine! But one thing is sure... You should start soon.
Kids will be home for 9 full days and boredom and extreme hunger is unavoidable (because kids are always hungry!). These long holidays bring with them a lot of anxiety if you're a mom that works from home, or outside the house. You need to be ready for two things. Preparing more food and entertaining your kids. Exhausting!
And what kids love the most about these long holidays? No! It is not having to pack to vacation somewhere else. No! It is not waking up early to go for a walk at the crack of dawn. And -in the case of kids like mine- it is definitely not a schedule full of activities they dislike, like crotcheting.
What they love is to have fun and eat. Particularly, eat sweets, which every mommy knows it's a very bad idea.
I want sugar over-dozed kids who don't want to go to bed, says no mom ever!
But I cannot blame the kids as one of the most delicious things in life is dessert!
Here's a thing you can feed your kids with, but also keep them busy! This recipe is so easy, they can whip it on their own with little intervention! Did I mention how healthy this is? With 1.1g net carbs and made with a keto-friendly sugar substitute, these chocolate truffles, aka Ferrero Rocher, are a safe bet!
I cannot think of a better treat to begin spring break than these delicious and creamy truffles. I'm a fan of Ferrero Rocher but not a fan of the crazy amount of sugar and carb. That's simply unhealthy. I try to stay away from those candies and make my own versions! Delicious sins made in heaven!
But why would I deprive myself or the kids of enjoying treats like this one if I can create a healthier version? For no reason! And neither should you!
These truffles are super easy to make. You can substitute ingredients depending on what you have on hand.
Pro-tip #1: You can substitute the cream cheese for plain greek yogurt or mascarpone.
Pro-tip #2: You can also substitute the peanut butter! Use almond butter or hazelnut butter. Or just use more cream cheese instead.
Pro-tip #3: Instead of the 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips sweetened with Stevia, you can use 1/4 cup cocoa powder or a sugar-free chocolate bar. Just make sure to use 1/4 cup extra heavy cream.
Pro-tip #4: Feel free to use any nut you prefer. Macadamias. Peanuts. Walnuts. Or roll the truffles in a mix of sugar and cinnamon.
Pro-tip #5: Add a tsp. of instant coffee granules for a hint of caffeine!
Pro-tip #6: Double the recipe. Seriously! You'll thank me later!
Pro-tip #7: Work 1/2 the mix while the other half stays refrigerated.
Pro-tip #8: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator or freeze for up to 2 weeks.
I hope you enjoy this easy and delicious recipe!
