Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Yeah, you are probably going to hate me for creating these. I got this idea from Pinterest. Evil little website that that is. It's always getting my mind moving. I just can't help but think of how to make something paleo. So enter cookie dough truffles. These are decadent little mouthfuls of chocolate chip heaven. I hope you like them as much as I do (hubby enjoyed the ones I let him have).

If your maple or coconut sugar is a coarse grain then I recommend running it through a food processor to powder it up first before using it.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

2/3 cup ghee
1/2 cup coconut or maple sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips (I like enjoy life), save the remainder of the bag to coat the truffles

In large mixing bowl combine ghee and sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients and mix to combine. Chill mixture for 1 hour. Scoop out tablespoon sized balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Chill in fridge for another hour. While the balls are chilling set up a double boiler (a small pot of water simmering with a bowl set on top), and melt remaining chocolate. Dip the balls into the chocolate and place back on the cookie sheet. Chill until set then store in an airtight container. Serve and enjoy!
