Chocolate Collagen Peppermint Truffles

Homemade truffles can come across as an intimidating recipe. They have a bouche reputation and are sold in most high-end chocolate boutiques with ridiculous price-tags. Contrary to popular belief however, making truffles at home can be quite fun and easy. 
Unless, of course, you don’t like getting your hands dirty. And by dirty, I mean covered of chocolate.
Still a little nervous? No worries, I got you. I’m going to break down the process so that even your kids will be able to help!

Ingredients
  

For the Truffles

  • 1 cup Lilly’s Dark Chocolate Roughly chopped
  • cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbsp Ghee Or butter, softened
  • 2 scoops Collagen
  • ½ tsp Peppermint Extract
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder For dipping the truffles in

For a Chocolate Topping

  • cup Lilly’s Dark Chocolate Melted
  • ½ tsp Coconut Oil
  • pinch Sea Salt

For a Coconut Butter Drizzle

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Butter
  • ½ tsp Coconut Oil

Instructions
 

  • Finely chop up your chocolate and place in a medium sized bowl. 
  • Over medium heat, place a small pot and add the cream - bring to a low simmer.
  • Add the softened ghee/butter and collagen to the chopped chocolate. Pour the cream over top and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Stir in the peppermint extract and stir until everything is combined. If the chocolate is not melting, gently heat it over a double boiler on the stove.
  • Move the chocolate bowl to the fridge and let it sit for at least 2 hours. 
  • Remove the bowl from the fridge and use a cookie scoop (about 2 tsp worth of chocolate) and roll into balls. 
  • Roll each ball into the toppings of your choice (I included cocoa powder in this recipe) and let them sit on a parchment lined baking sheet to harden. 
  • You can also make the chocolate topping recipe or the coconut butter drizzle recipe mentioned in the ingredient section. Just combine and heat ingredients.
  • Move the truffles to the fridge to let them set quicker. You can store them there until you’re ready to eat.
