Winter doesn’t get much cozier than this. Holistic Chef Laura Lea has concocted this decadent White Chocolate Peppermint Truffle recipe for those long winter nights.

Nashville-based certified holistic chef and food writer Laura Lea has whipped up the perfect recipe for your winter wind-down. Snowed in? great. Put on your apron, gather your ingredients, and get cooking. You'll thank us later. 

White Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

1/3 cup sugar-free white chocolate chips

2 tablespoons unsalted, unsweetened almond butter

2 tablespoons refined coconut oil

2 scoops beam white chocolate peppermint night-time powder

Optional: finely-crushed peppermints and / or more white chocolate chips, melted, for drizzling.

In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine white chocolate chips, almond butter, and coconut oil. Microwave on high in 20-second increments, stirring in between, until melted. 

Stir in Beam White Chocolate Peppermint night-time sleeping powder. As you stir, mixture should thicken into a malleable dough. If it doesn’t, refrigerate for 10-30 minutes until more firm.

Line a half-sheet pan or plate with nonstick parchment. Roll dough into round 1” truffles. If using, add crushed peppermints to a bowl and press into truffles. Drizzle white chocolate on top, if using.

Refrigerate truffles for one hour before enjoying. Truffles will keep in the fridge up to one week.
