Potato Truffles – “Sweet – potato dessert”

Potato what ?yes- truffles. This innovation arose from a creative session working with some basic ingredients and developing something new with them.

To be honest ?I thought: Oh god another healthy and strange tasting treat, but no, they actually taste really heavy like a sugary chcolate fudge or coconut praline.

Of course, it is not a rocher or a rafaello, but its also not as bad for your health and your environment as either Rocher nor Rafaello.

You also should have seen our gluten-allergic students faces. They were so heavy and Dominique, one of these students had half of the box as a breakfast. So they were obviously really appreciated. We hope you love them as much as we and the others did.


Enjoy !

How you do it:


For both :

  1. Start with peeling and boiling your potatoes until you can cut them through smoothly.
  2. Take them out of the water and let them cool down

Chocolate Fudge

  1. Add the cacao powder, sugar and the coconut oil and mix it with a hand mixer. Dontbe surprised about the extreme sticky and gummy like. This is because of the starch and is ideal for the fudgy texture.
  2. Now stir the almonds under until they are equally spread.
  3. Start with taking a spoon to measure the approx. size and let this drop to a plate of cacao powder and roll them in them until you have a nicely covered chocolate ball. Place them on baking paper in a box and store them in he fide for at least 10 minutes to sit.

Coconut Indulgence

  1. Again mix the potatoes with the coconut oil, sugar and the coconut flakes (leaving some behind for the coating).
  2. Form some balls with a spoon and create an even shape by rolling them on the plate with the coconut flakes.
  3. Store them on baking paper in a box in the fridge for a while.

Its also possible to freeze them and get them out when you feel like a little treat!
