Our daughter Emma loves art – and at any given moment, she’s drawing a picture or doing some sort of craft project in her spare time! So earlier this year we started sending Emma to art classes taught by a local artist in our town.
Excuse me for a moment while I indulge in a ‘proud Mommy moment’ by showing you some of her art…
Every year Emma’s art teacher, Heidi Mayo, coordinates an annual art exhibit to showcase the incredible talents of her young students! As part of that exhibit each year, every one of Heidi’s students also creates and donates a pastel painting that gets auctioned off at the art exhibit opening party to benefit a very worthy cause!
The opening party was this past weekend – and these Crispy Chocolate Biscoff Truffles were one of two desserts we volunteered to bring to the opening party! Like so many of our original recipes – this one came about from ingredients we had on hand – leftover Biscoff Spread and Biscoff Cookies, as well as Rice Krispies from this recipe, and a bag of chocolate chips. We also wanted to keep it simple and easy to prepare.
And – whenever possible – we try to sneak in some healthy ingredients too! In fact, these crispy chocolate biscoff truffles have a secret, healthy ingredient – quinoa – that was cooked in fruit juice to give it some sweetness and then added to the chocolate/Biscoff filling. The quinoa served as the perfect binder for these no-bake truffles – but you’d never know it’s in there!
All of these Crispy Chocolate Biscoff Truffles were quickly eaten the night of the art show – and we promised we’d share the recipe here as soon as we could!
