2-Ingredient Healthy Chocolate Truffles

November 17, 2017

2-Ingredient Healthy Chocolate Truffles

Some of my friends like to visit me because they know I always have a freezer full of sweet treats, but others don’t, for that exact same reason. But not everything I make is loaded with butter and sugar, and these fudgy chocolate squares are proof. They are made with only 2 ingredients – chocolate and tahini, and I know what you’re thinking – tahini? Doesn’t sound great. But you’re wrong. It’s DELICIOUS. And you can barely taste the tahini in there. It’s a perfect healthy treat for a chocolate craving, and did I mention it takes 3 minutes to make?

You can add your favorite nuts or dried fruit to the mixture. I love to add peanuts or pistachios.ย For round truffles instead of squares,ย refrigerate the mixture, then roll into balls. This mixtureย yields 30-40 balls, depend on the size you want.

Healthy Chocolate Tahini truffles (2 Ingredients)
Yields: 36 squares
 
Ingredients
  • 10.5 oz (300 g) 54%-60% cocoa dark/bittersweet chocolate
  • 1½ cup (300 g) tahini paste
  • optional - ¾ cup of your favorite add-ins like chopped nuts, seeds, or dried fruit
Instructions
  1. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted. Add tahini and whisk until combined and smooth. Stir in nuts. Spread into an 8x8-inch pan that's been lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours, then cut into 36 squares. Keep in the fridge as they will start to melt at room temperature.

      Because there are only 2 ingredients, the tahini can’t be substituted in this recipe.

      Thank you so much! Sure, you can make as many truffles as you like. It really depends on the size of your truffles, but for a small quantity, you can third the recipe.

    Hey! Looks great! Can it have raw cocoa powder instead of a chocolate block? ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Radhika, chocolate and tahini are both necessary for this recipe, so unfortunately you can’t replace the chocolate with cocoa powder.

      I’m using raw tahini (sesame seed paste, made from sesame only), and it’s bright in color.

        Hi Shiran,

        Thanks for ur reply! I believe it’s hulled tahini then?

        Also, when adding in the tahini, the chocolate would have to be off the heat am I right?

        Thanks much again! ๐Ÿ™‚

          I use hulled tahini because I like its flavor and texture better, and yes, Add the the tahini to the chocolate after melting it (off the heat). Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚
