Recipe: CBD Brownie Truffles
Ready to try one of our favorite CBD delicacies? These naturally sweetened truffles have a rich, brownie-like center with a decadent chocolate shell—both of which are enhanced by our USDA Certified Organic, full spectrum CBD Coconut Oil!
Makes 2 dozen (or 12 servings).
Note: Each serving (2 truffles) contains approximately 29mg CBD.
- ⅔ cup packed with Medjool dates, pits removed (~11 to 12 large dates)
- ½ cup roasted almond butter (smooth)
- ⅔ cup cacao powder
- ¾ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons Lazarus Naturals CBD Coconut Oil (plus 1 teaspoon, divided)
- 4 ounces dark chocolate* (or semi-sweet chocolate)
- unsweetened shredded coconut, for garnish
Line a large plate with parchment or wax paper.
To a food processor, add the dates, almond butter, cacao powder, salt, and the 2 tablespoons of Lazarus Naturals CBD Coconut Oil. Process the mixture into a thick paste. (You may have to stop the machine once or twice and scrape down the sides to ensure that ingredients get evenly distributed.)
One tablespoon at a time, roll the soft mixture into balls and place onto the parchment-lined plate. Freeze for 30 minutes to chill, so they can partially solidify.
Once those are chilled, gently melt the chocolate in a small bowl using either a double boiler on the stove or a microwave. Stir the remaining teaspoon of Lazarus Naturals CBD Coconut Oil into the melted chocolate.
One at a time, roll each chilled brownie ball in the molten chocolate,—using a fork to spin them around. Balance them on the prongs of a fork to allow any excess chocolate to drip away, then return them to the plate and add a pinch of shredded coconut to their crown for garnish. Once they have all been coated, refrigerate them until the chocolate has fully solidified—about 20 minutes. (Alternatively, if it’s a cool day, the truffles can simply rest at room temperature for an hour or two until the chocolate sets naturally.)
Truffles can be served at room temperature, but are best stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container—where they will keep for about 4 weeks. (Once their sweet relief has been experienced, though, we'd be surprised any were still left after 4 days!)
