A holiday dedicated to chocolate and pink makes me all giddy inside.
I'm was so close to buying myself a box full of See's candy, you know the ones covered in those chocolate jimmy sprinkles? But then I had to remind myself that I've finally noticed my hips are somewhat shrinking from having baby number two...And I really really want to fit into a cute pair of colored jeans by spring. Pink ones preferably...with glitter. I think my 2 year old has a pair.
So I figured I would make a truffle that would still give me that sweet taste without making my butt looking like a large pink jaw breaker in those pink skinny jeans...
And a what a jaw breaker that would be to see something like that...
Chocolate Chia Seed Truffles
makes 12-15 small truffles
20 pitted dates
1/4 c. + 1 TB. chia seeds
1/8 c. cocoa powder
grated chocolate-I used 90%
1. In a food processor, blend all ingredients together until fully blended and a round ball of dough forms. Make sure there are so chunks.
2. Roll a ball of dough about 1 inch thick. Roll it in grated chocolate or sprinkles. Keep in air tight container in the fridge, or cool place.
If you ask me, Boo's definitely up to date with what's in style...
Pink glitter pants with sprinkled lips...Sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day look to me! :)
