Salted Caramel Truffles

CHOCOLATE! My favourite word when it comes to dessert. These Healthy Chocolate and Salted Caramel Truffles are simply the BEST!

I have always had a huge addiction to nut butters and Almond butter is without a doubt one of my favourite foods; it has both a nutty and sweet flavour. A combo which I absolutely love! This recipe totally reflects my love of them, with a recipe that’s all about warmth, comfort and energy. This […]
