Now you can enjoy all your favorites flavors with these fun Peppermint Brownie Truffles! These vegan gluten-free brownies are festive, crowd-pleasing, no-bake, easily customizable, and take only 15 minutes to make!
Add chocolate sandwich cookies and broken candy canes (if using) into a food processor.
Pulse the cookies and candy canes until they turn into fine crumbs.
Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, almond butter, and maple syrup. Process until well combined, smooth, and a dough type mixture forms.
Using a cookie scoop, and the palm of your hands, form the dough into about 1 inch balls. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Once you are done forming balls with all the dough mixture, place the baking sheet in the fridge to chill the balls while you melt the chocolate.
To Coat The Brownie Truffles with Chocolate:
Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, mixing in between, until all the chocolate is fully melted and pourable. (Alternatively, use the double broiler method, see notes below).
Add each peppermint brownie ball into the melted chocolate and coat using a spoon. Slowly remove with a fork, letting any excess melted chocolate drip off, and place back on the parchment-lined baking sheet. (see notes below)
Repeat with the remaining balls. Sprinkle additional crushed candy canes on top, and place back in the fridge until the chocolate hardens completely.
Enjoy or store in the fridge in an air-tight container!
Chocolate Sandwich Cookies - I used oreos for this recipe, but you can also use any other chocolate sandwich cookie. For gluten-free option, use a gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookie.Peppermint Flavor - This recipe uses candy canes. You can also use peppermint chocolate sandwich cookies which come around during the holidays. If you don't like peppermint, simply omit it from this recipe.Dipping the Brownie Balls into Chocolate - Make sure the brownie balls are chilled if possible prior to dipping them into the melted chocolate to coat. Pour out small amounts of the melted chocolate into a smaller glass bowl to make it easier to coat each one. This way, you can also heat the melted chocolate again if needed.
