 Chocolate Roasted Almond Fig Truffles with 12 days of Christmas with Valley Figs


You guys.  I invented the most delicious truffles!  Move over Figgy Pudding!!!  These truffles are packed full of amazing ingredients and could be classified as an energy bite or protein bon-bon!  I call them truffles.  Chocolate Roasted Almond Fig truffles.  The figs are the super stars here.  My husband has always loved figs...me, not so much...but these truffles have turned me into a believer...and fig lover.
 This post is part of the 12 days of Christmas and is sponsored by Valley Figs.  The winner of the Valley Figs giveaway will get amazing cookbooks and figs!  Perfect to make these truffles!
 There are 2 varieties of figs I used in the truffles: Calimyrna Figs and Mission Figlets.
 You will need 1/2 cup of each type of fig.  Trim off the stick stems and place in a bowl.
 Then cover with warm water for 20 minutes...then drain all the water.

 Ingredients:

1 cup of Figs
1 cup of Roasted Almonds
1/4 cup of Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of Vanilla (I used vanilla powder)
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Dash of salt
 Pulverize the almonds in the food processor first.
 Then add all the ingredients, except the figs, pulverize again.
 Then add the cup of figs and pulverize!
 It makes an amazing grainy mixture...but they figs are just sticky enough to stick it all together, without sticking on anything else!
 Roll into 12 delicious balls.  Eat immediately or put in air tight container in the fridge for later.
 Roasted almonds are key in this recipe.  Place almonds on a baking sheet and bake at 350* for 15 minutes...stir and bake again for 15 minutes.  Worth all the effort.
 Each truffle tastes amazing and is packed with protein and sweet, crunchy figs.
