CHOCOLATE! Does that have your attention? Chocolate always has my attention 🙂 And these Healthy Salted Caramel Truffles are simply the BEST!
If you’re like me and pretty much always have chocolate on your mind, these are perfect! Creamy, sweet, and soft on the inside, coated with a thick layer of decadent dark chocolate, topped with just a sprinkle of sea salt. I love them as a sweet treat after dinner, to take to parties, or give as a gift!
For this recipe (which was SUPER easy to make, by the way), I used this dark chocolate as the coating. I love this chocolate because it’s dark, but still has a touch of sweet in it. Have you ever tried 100% dark? Haha. I have, and as much as I love very dark chocolate, it’s just not edible for me at 100%. This one is 74%, so it’s the perfect balance! Personally, I always like to keep it on hand, because you never know when you’re going to get an overwhelming hankering for something sweet! Or if you’re like me, you might live in a state of continual chocolate cravings. In that case, just a few pieces of this stuff will help satisfy that sweet tooth!
For the days you needed something a little more decadent, these Healthy Salted Caramel Truffles are melt-in-your-mouth goooooood!
