No Bake Snickerdoodle Truffles

Put these No Bake Snickerdoodle Truffles on your must make list!  When I was shopping at Whole Foods the other day, they were giving out samples of these vegan snickerdoodle truffles.  While they were very delicious, the ingredients were definitely not the healthiest.  So when I got home, I set out to make my own version and I think they came out pretty good.  If you love truffles, you must also check out these dark chocolate raspberry truffles, and these pecan caramel truffles.

Vanilla Creme Truffles

If you have been following this blog for awhile, you know I love truffle recipes.   Since I am more of a vanilla girl, I wanted to make some Vanilla Creme Truffles.  I used vanilla beans instead of extract.  The vanilla beans are a must try!  They add so much more vanilla flavor without the alcohol taste.  These came out quite delicious.  I think they would also be good without the chocolate coating.  They are also a super cinch to make.  If you also like truffles, you may want to try this recipe.  It’s one of the most popular recipes on the blog.

These healthy truffles are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  Unlike most of my other truffle recipe, this one calls for a cashew cream for the base instead of coconut butter.  I used the cashew cream because I really wanted the vanilla flavor to stand out.

Orange Cream Truffles

These Orange Cream Truffles are super good!  The other day, a reader of mine asked if I had any chocolate recipes with orange cream.  I didn’t at the time, but I loved the sound of a dessert like that.  That is how these orange cream truffles were born.  If you like my strawberry creme truffles, then you will love these orange cream truffles!  It’s like a bite sized creamsicle covered in chocolate.  How yummy is that?  I think these truffles would be great without the chocolate too.
