Skinny Caramel Truffles

You read that right, kids. These are SKINNY truffles. It's seems to be an oxymoron , I know, but I am tellin' the truth.  They are also:

  • No bake
  • 5 ingredients
  • Simple to make
  • Yummy





I almost hate to tell you what's inside of these pretty little things. I wish I could just feed them to you and watch your eyes get wide as I tell you they're healthy. But since I can't do that, I guess I will have to tell you how to make them for yourselves.


They are full of fiber and protein, and are coated in delicious dark chocolate (antioxidants, people!). Just don't write these off after reading the ingredients. They are GOOD and even kid approved, so try them, k?



Skinny Caramel Truffles
by: Back For Seconds
  Makes about 25 small truffles

  • 1 cup Fiber 1 cereal (or similar)
  • 4 oz low fat cream cheese
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp caramel extract
  • 8 oz dark chocolate
In a food processor grind cereal finely. Add cream cheese, brown sugar, and caramel extract and pulse until it all comes together. Roll into bite sized balls (be sure to keep them small) and set on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour. Melt chocolate until smooth, thinning with a bit of coconut oil if needed. Dunk the frozen truffles in the chocolate and lift out with a fork, tapping it gently to smooth. Immediately add sprinkles if desired. Store in the refrigerator but let come to room temp before eating. Enjoy!

You wouldn't think you'd hear the words "skinny" and "truffle" in the same sentence! But thank heavens! These look great! Love that they are made from Fiber 1 cereal, that is brilliant!

this may make me sound like an old woman but I actually LOVE fiber one. Seriously. It's SO good lol. I've never baked or "no-baked" with it though! I love these skinny mini little guys! Stephanie, you are SO creative!

Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl said...

I love using Fiber One in recipes--people never have a clue! =) We make a really yummy/healthy faux buffalo chicken "wing" that is coated with Fiber One, and it is delicious! I never thought of putting it in a filling like this, what a great idea! Now I can eat my truffles guilt-free!

Rachel said...

Seaweed and Raine said...

Amazing! I don't know what Fibre cereal is... but I'm hoping it's simmilar to Saltana Bran or some such. I'm about to start hosting a Mother's group for mum's with little babies (there are lots on our block) so I've been looking for little nibbles that I can set out. Thanks for the recipe! :)

Carole said...

I would never have guessed the fiber cereal. Good call! I really want to try this!

Joan@chocolateandmore said...

Ok, first your cookie dough dip and now this. I'd say you're taking all the fun out of dessert but with these recipes, I can eat more! I wonder if I could use Special K for these, that's the closest I'd be able to get to a fiber cereal. I think I'll be finding out soon! Thanks for sharing.
