Today is LEAP DAY!

Yup that one day on the calendar that ONLY comes around every 4 years!

So shouldn't you get a  "cheat day" from your diet, since the day doesn't exist on 3 out of 4 years?????

If you think that is a lovely idea, I've got a dessert idea that allows you to cheat AND eat healthy! AHA! 

These truffles are easy to make with just FOUR simple ingredients, including the healthy Viki's Granola, and are perfect for sweet treat for you, or your loved one. The the hardest part of making them, is trying to limit yourself to only eating one!

ENJOY!!!

Ingredients:


1 2/3 cups heavy cream
7 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 pound semisweet chocolate, cut or broken into shards 
12oz bag of Viki's Granola for rolling truffle 


Directions:


1. Place cream and butter into a saucepan. Allow butter to melt on medium heat, stirring the whole time. Raise the heat just until the cream mixture comes to a boil.
2. Remove saucepan from heat, add the chocolate and stir until it is completely melted. Continue stirring until the mixtures thickens and cools a bit. 
3. Cover mixture with cellophane and place in refrigerator. Allow at least 2 hours to cool and thicken for at least 2 hours,  but mix 3 to 4 times during that time.
4. To form truffles use a small melon baller, or spoon, to scoop chocolate mixture into the palm of your hand. Roll into a ball,  then roll in your favorite Viki's Granola. Place completed balls on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate before serving.


YUM!!!
