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…
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?
The votes are in! A big round of applause to our winners—@meandmydad.livinghealthy, @sunniesandspice and @addicted_to_health_—for their delicious creations!
HOW TO MAKE THEM YOUR WAY – ANY WAY
In doing this, we realized there’s a lot of flexibility to make these your own. Why just go with a chocolate center? We have both peanut butter and blueberry FIBER/PROTEIN Bars that can serve as a ganache too! Then top as you wish! Just follow this simple formula:
