- 12g crushed mint candy for rolling
In a small mixing bowl, measure protein powder, cocoa powder, PB2 and salt. Stir to combine. Add wet ingredients – almond butter, honey, mint extract and 1 T. of water. Mix with a fork; dough will be very sticky. Add just enough water to combine, but don’t add too much or they will be too sticky. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes so the dough becomes pliable.
Measure approximately 18-19g dough and roll to form six equal sized balls. Roll each truffle in 2g of crushed mint candy. Refrigerate remaining truffles and best consumed within 1 day.
