*WIN* People Over With These No-Bake Recipes

3+ winning ways to make decadent F-Factor truffles

 

How to turn F-Factor FIBER/PROTEIN Bars into the most drool-worthy confections

Here at the F-Factor office, we’re always working to come up with new EASY ways to make better-for-you versions of your favorite delicious treats. For Valentine’s Day this past year, thought outside the box (of chocolates) and figured out a simple way to make actually-healthy chocolatey truffles.

To do this, we needed to dissect what a chocolate truffle actually is. In the simplest sense, truffles are bite sized chocolate confections. They’re made by creating a silky chocolate “ganache” center, which is then rolled and coated with a number of different ingredients: melted chocolate, powdered sugar, sprinkles, crushed nuts or different candies. Traditionally, these would be round, and dusted with cocoa powder, which fun fact is where they got their name from, their resemblance to the delicacy of the same name.

The ganache is the foundation of a truffle. Using Chocolate Brownie F-Factor FIBER/PROTEIN Bars, we mimicked the traditional ganache center and there it was, an easy, no-bake recipe for a lower-calorie version of this TDF confection. For a little how-to on how this works, check out Tanya Zuckerbrot’s IGTV on how to make them.

This, of course, was just the beginning. We then had some fun and challenged you to make your own…

THE CHALLENGE
Create your own #FFACTORAPPROVED chocolate truffles using at least 1 Chocolate Brownie F-Factor FIBER/PROTEIN Bar. The submissions were based on nutrition, creativity, and taste. They also had to be posted to Instagram with some hashtags and submitted to [email protected] by a certain date.

We received amazing submissions (shout out to everyone who played along!) But there can only be so many winners – are you ready to find out who they are?
