If you’re what you eat, then I’m happy I’m going to be a white chocolate greek yogurt truffle.
Creamy on the inside, crunchy on the outside. Sweet, fudgy and superdupermega delicious, yet health-ish and protein packed.
Why would anyone choose being a head of lettuce when they can be truffles, I don’t know.
((Take no offence, heads of lettuce from all over the world, you still have a place in my heart. I’ll see you tonight. Time: 10 pm. Place: my dinner plate. Please, don’t tell the truffles… I don’t want them to know about our affair… yet))
Whatever. These truffles. They’re good, REAL good. Not only because they’re heaven in your mouth (chocolate overload? I’d say yes!), but also because they just require 3 simple ingredients and they’re super easy to make AND lighter than the average heavy-cream version.
((Heavy-cream based truffles from all over the world: take no offence either. And please, come visit me after the head of lettuce has left. 11 pm-ish, I’d say. Thanks))
What’s the secret to lighter balls of creamy perfection, you say. I ain’t no witch (sadly), so I had to rely on both creamy greek yogurt and sugar-free chocolate to make magic happen.
SUGAR FREE CHOCOLATE? *I see you want to close the tab but DON’T* Yeah, most versions out there taste like something which starts with “P” and ends with “OO”. It also rhymes with “moo”, in case you haven’t figured out yet. They’re full of nasty artificial ingredients that you cannot pronounce and they’re just plain gross.
Clearly, sugar free chocolate and me ain’t no friends.
((Sugar free chocolates from all over the world: DO take offence, and don’t you ever think of visiting me. I’m calling the cops if you do. UNLESS you’re TORRAS CHOCOLATE, then I want you to come. I’ll be here waiting for ya once the truffles are gone. 12 pm-ish, I’d say))
Seriously, these Torras chocolates have changed the way I think about sugar free chocolate! They’re make from real ingredients (they have a stevia-based line which is the bomb!), they taste even better than they’re sugary counterparts and they aren’t pricey. Big win win here!
To make these truffles, I used both the white chocolate and dark chocolate fondant versions, which melt like wonders and taste like heaven. I used their cocoa powder for the dark version as well, and it works perfect too – it’s so rich and chocolaty!
Now, let’s move onto my favorite part: their special baking sprinkles!
(For the record, they’re awesome eaten by the spoon too. Not that I have tried)
Of course, I have to use them to roll the truffles. Not only do they add awesome flavor, but also pretty points! And you know I’m a sucker for pretty food, don’t you?
If you also want to make your food taste and look fab while keeping it on the healthy side, don’t forget to visit Chocolates Torras and buy everything in sight. They are a Spanish brand BUT they ship worldwide. What are you waiting for? Let the chocolate party begin!

Sooooooo, guys: I’m going on holiday on Monday. Dublin supermarkets – here I come!
Fear not – I’ve got lots of yummy posts coming your way, but I just wanted to say that you might now see me around so often for the bext two weeks. Yeah, I’ll still read your blogs, pin stuff, be active on insta BUT there’s so much froyo to eat, so many Topshop shoes to buy and so many Irish boys with a beard that I need to
stalk contemplate soooo as I said, I’ll be a bit less active than usual. My apologies for that! Hope you guys have fun too!
