An acquaintance gave me a recipe from The Bulletproof Diet for a chocolate truffle pudding. I wanted to try to make it for Christmas, but didn’t have all the ingredients and couldn’t have the butter that it called for. So, in Rosemary fashion, I gave it a few tweaks (read: make it completely unrecognizable from the original recipe), and what turned out was perfect! I am a huge, huge fan of peppermint chocolate. I used to be obsessed with those Andes Mints back in the day (helloooo, sugar addiction!) and this reminded me of that. I brought it to our family Christmas dinner and even the non-Paleo among us scarfed it down. I only managed to get one picture when there were two bites left in the jar… hence the less-than-ideal photo. Next time, I will take a better photo! I think this would be super cute served in martini glasses with a sprig of fresh mint as garnish.

The original recipe called for chocolate powder, which apparently contains cocoa butter. I didn’t have chocolate powder, so I just used cocoa powder plus what was left of my cocoa butter. If you don’t have the cocoa butter, you can substitute another tablespoon of coconut butter. It just lends a little extra chocolatey flavor. I’m sure melted unsweetened chocolate would work as well.
