How to make Chocolate Protein Truffles
Step 1: Take a large mixing bowl or a blender. Add chocolate protein powder, cashew nuts, unsweetened chocolate chips, zero-sugar maple syrup, and low-fat milk to the bowl or the blender.
Mix the ingredients until they combine well and form a dough of even consistency. Let it cool in the freezer for a few minutes.
Step 2: Take the dough out of the freezer and roll small parts of the dough into small bite-sized balls or truffle-like shapes with your hand. Place the balls on the baking dish. Do this to the entire dough.
In a bowl melt the sugar-free milk chocolate. Take the truffle balls and coat them with the melted white chocolate evenly and place them back on the lined baking dish.
Step 3: Once all the truffle balls are coated in chocolate, place the lined baking dish into the freezer and allow the truffles to freeze for about 30 minutes or until the milk chocolate sets perfectly.
Step 4: Once the chocolate has set and the truffles are ready, take them out of the freezer.
