Pink Salt & Pepper Chocolate Truffles

Exotic chocolate blends are pretty hot right now and I love to come up with exciting combinations.  I've always loved slightly salty chocolate and was looking for a spice to complement my favorite Himalayan salt–and to offer a bright contrasting color.  The pink peppercorn was perfect!  It's actually a berry–a bit sweeter than black pepper, but still spicy with hints of citrus.  The raw chocolate truffle base here is ultra simple, so feel free to get creative and mix up your own favorite flavors.  

 

 

 

Pink Salt & Pepper Chocolate Truffles


Makes one dozen

 

Ingredients:

3/4 cup raw cacao powder

seeds of one vanilla bean

1/2 cup pitted medjool dates

1/4 cup raw honey

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon ground pink peppercorns

1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt, course ground

 

Instructions:

Place the cacao powder and vanilla bean in a food processor.  Pulse gently to combine.  Add the dates, honey and coconut oil and process until sticky and smooth.  To make each truffle, roll about one tablespoon of chocolate into a 1" ball with your hands until very smooth.  In a small bowl, mix the salt & pepper.  Place a pinch of salt & pepper on the top of each truffle as a garnish and press to set.  Place the garnished truffles in the refrigerator for one hour to firm.  Indulge with pleasure!

    what if you wrote a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content is
    not solid., but what if you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean Pink Salt & Pepper Chocolate Truffles – TheGreenGirls.com
    — TheGreenGirls.com is a little plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page
    and note how they create news headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get
    people interested about what you’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.
