Peppermint Chocolate Truffles {dairy-free, nut-free} by Our Paleo Life

Paleo Peppermint Chocolate Truffles

Typically, truffles are made with dairy, utilizing heavy cream to make the thick ganache filling. But for those of us with dairy-intolerances or that just follow the paleo diet for overall health, this can be a problem. To keep these dairy-free, we use full-fat coconut milk, which ensures that we’re dairy-free but still get all that creamy deliciousness in our ganache.

Now you can have your pie and eat it too. The all-American, classic apple pie is now grain-, dairy, and refined sugar-free. All the taste of your grandmother's recipe, none of the allergens. #paleo
