38 Calorie Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Truffle

Published on

These bite-sized round petit fours are low in calories and simple to make.


  • 3 oz (packed 1/2 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips or mini chips
  • 3 tbsp milk or canned coconut milk
  • Tiny pinch of salt
  • A few drops pure peppermint extract
  • Organic brand of cocoa powder


Combine chocolate, milk, and salt in a microwave-safe dish, and heat 50 seconds in the microwave. Stir, then heat until melted, in 10-second intervals (chocolate burns quickly), stirring after each. Now add the peppermint extract. Freeze at least 40 minutes, or until chocolate is hard enough to scoop out into truffle shapes with a mini cookie scoop. Store my truffles in the freezer until just before serving. Roll in cocoa before serving.
