Million Dollar Paleo Christmas Truffles – a simple, yet decadent and healthy Christmas treat!
Oh hey, you guys…. just hangin out with my Million Dollar Paleo Christmas Truffles….. No Big Deal.
We are just in thick of Christmas everything – aren’t we? I just spent the last few hours making Christmas cookies with the fam and there is so. much. sugar. Not that that is going to stop me from making cut-out cookies with my girls every year, but part of me is SO looking forward to January (and my 3rd Whole30!). I kind of can’t wait to rid my body of the excess…. stuff. Both food-wise and life-wise. There is just so much going on and so much to do!! A person could go crazy.
But, all we can do is just take a deep breath and take it one thing at a time, trying to remain present for those truly magic moments – like making homemade Christmas cookies with my girls.
And, we can also make sure we have healthier-ish options to grab – like these Million Dollar Paleo Christmas Truffles. They are decadent, delicious and so simple and easy to make. They are dairy-free, gluten-free and paleo ….. and they are freakin amazing.
And there is something about that pop of green with the dark brown chocolate – it just screams “I am expensive and so worth every penny.” Right?!
So, do yourself a favor and make these little balls of deliciousness for your next holiday party and serve them with some Ultimate Dairy-Free Egg Nog!
Hope you guys had an awesome weekend!
