Speaking of Fair Trade Chocolate...

I made truffles... Halloween truffles!!!

For some reason I always used to think that truffles would be really hard to make. I mean they seem so fancy shmancy. But then a friend some fabulous truffles and swore they were easy.

So I found this recipe... and it was easy!
I made a few adjustments & came up with a gluten/dairy free, vegan version:

Beat cream cheese until smooth and add powdered sugar gradually.
Stir in melted chocolate and vanilla (or espresso or mint) until there are no more streaks.
Scoop onto cookie sheet with a small cookie scoop and chill for 1 hour in fridge.
Shape them with your hands and roll in fun decorations! (powdered sugar, cocoa, sprinkles, coconut, etc)

See?! Super easy. Gluten free. Vegan. Organic. FAIR TRADE. Plus you'll probably impress everyone at your Halloween party. Definitely tell them they were really hard ;)
