Lazy Day Truffles

Say you want to make truffles, but...

A. ...you don't have any heavy cream,
B. ...you don't want to wait for ganache to cool,
C. ...you're feeling a little lazy.

Well, I have just the truffles for you.  Cocoa Almond Truffles.

Cocoa Almond Truffles are made from cocoa powder instead of ganache and mixed together with slivered almonds, espresso powder, vanilla and almond extracts.  They're not smooth like ganache truffles, but have a little crunch from the finely chopped almonds and are cocoa-y.  (I'm not sure cocoa-y is a word, but when you eat something cocoa-y, you know it.)

Roll them in powdered sugar, natural or Dutch-process cocoa, and voila!

I had the best of intentions of giving the majority of these truffles away, but was vetoed by the boys in my house.  Mr. E even added a few to his morning protein smoothies.  Yes, we're the epitome of health around here.
