Creamy Chocolate Mint Truffles
Prep Time: 10 minutes, plus at least 3 hours to chill
cook time: 2 minutes
1 teaspoon unsweetened cashew milk
1 teaspoon mint extract chocolate drizzle
½ cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon mint extract
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish
Place the cream cheese, sweetener, cashew milk, and extract in a bowl and mix with a hand mixer until smooth. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking, adding more sweetener or extract, if desired. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Using a mini ice cream scooper or spoon, scoop out 1-inch balls of the mixture. Place the balls on a serving platter. Place the platter in the refrigerator while you make the chocolate drizzle.
To make the drizzle, place the cream, sweetener, and chopped chocolate in a double boiler or in a heat-safe bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Heat on low, stirring, just until the chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the extract. Allow the drizzle to cool in the refrigerator for 8 minutes or until thickened, but still a bit warm; if it hardens too much, return the drizzle to the double boiler and reheat gently.
Remove the truffles from the fridge and use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over each truffle. Serve chilled, garnished with mint leaves.
Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Freezing is not recommended.
