Firstly, thank you everyone whom submitted questions via the form and through emails and comments- They have been all collated and will be addressed in parts- you still have time to submit questions if you’d like! 

One of the most popular requests was for recipes of popular food items in various restaurants, chains or products on there. Ironically, this is something I’ve always had a mild obsession with for quite some time. Since the early days of blogging, I loved re-making my favourite things but never ended up posting them.

Story time! So- I made these Copycat Lindt Truffles for my friend’s engagement last September. ITt was an epic night. Open bar, pork belly sliders and music blaring from the 90’s. The engaged couple were cool too but that’s not relevant. Anyway, the next day, a message was sent out to all attendees thanking them for their presence AND presents….and a shout out to one of my friend’s Aunties for the ‘delicious Lindt Truffle like chocolates.’ Pretty sure

a)      I’m not Female

b)      I’m younger than any of the ‘auntie’s there

c)       I was the only one who made something edible

Anyway said Aunty claimed credit for my edible gift and I now associated my copycat Lindt Truffles in negative light…until now.

Last week, there was a charity fundraiser for Breast Cancer awareness and communication was sent throughout my business unit asking for volunteers to (con)tribute baked goods or sweet treats. Never one to omit from a chance to whip up a treat, it was time to bring sexy Lindor back.

Friends…you know I’m not one to condone false advertising when it comes to recipes and I promise you- these have the same texture of a Lindt truffle- a creamy, soft, melt in your mouth interior with a firm, chocolate coating. In the middle is the optional nut of choice- for me it wasn’t optional because who doesn’t like a central surprise.

Whip these up and if you share- stamp a picture of your face on it.

  1. Can’t believe an Auntie actually did that, how shameless! I used to have an obsession with truffles and bought them by the box. Then I became a bit more health conscious, but I still crave them all the time. Love how you healthify recipes, especially desserts because I’ve got a serious sweet tooth. 🙂

  2. UHHHH rude of her to take credit, I would have totally been like “UHH NO THAT WAS ME.” Cause I’m cool like that. These look gooood, I must attempt with coconut milk, FULL FAT FOR ME!

    1. I know, right. Bitch please, this has my swear in it.

      I’ve tried it with coconut milk- it’s amazing, just needs to be mixed well prior.

  3. So for some weird reasons, I thought you were making a cherry cordial. The weird booze cherries stuck inside chocolate. I was wrong. So, so wrong, and these are so much better.

    I know what Lindt truffles are and I love them, especially the white chocolate ones. These look fabulous my friend, and since I’m now an old pro at oat flour, I can’t wait to make them. Well done!

    1. I know exactly what I’m bringing to the next staff meeting at work! These look and sound delicious! Am I right to assume that the biscuits are just a sweet cookie (like a shortbread)?

      1. Sweet biscuits are any standard cheap biscuit which is….sweet haha. Like the ones they give you with a cup of coffee (if that makes sense) lol!

    2. …..Cherry cordial? Are we living in the 1950’s where cherry cordial was a treat for Sunday afternoons.

      I can’t wait to post my Meg truffles (RAFAELLOS. HAVE YOU TRIED THEM YET)

      1. Alright I may be older but I’m not ancient. I guess cherry cordials are though huh.

        So I just googled RAFAELLOS and I can tell you I’ve never had one of those; never even heard of them until now. I’m intrigued.

  4. These look so healthy for a lindt truffle… I haven’t had one in ages. I love copycat recipes… because you know what goes into them (not junk and preservatives)!

  5. Speaking of our love for Lindt chocolate, I am truly excited for this recipe. Considering saving my last 4 squares until this weekend when I get to all Martha Stewart in the kitchen and try your recipe out. It will have to suffice since you can’t join me and then indulge at my table for one! And thank you for taking the time to post such a detailed recipe for your readers. I know how much time it can take. So I truly appreciate you!

    1. YES! You need to try it out- and seriously, that table better still be saved for me!

      You’re too kind, Ashley. As always, appreciate it!

  6. OH.MY.GOODNESS.MY.GOODNESS! These definitely look TO.DIE.FOR! If I can figure out how to exchange grams to cups, I would love to try them too. Thanks so very much for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck. You added a real ‘flair’ to our party. =)

    1. Oh, and I have basic conversions :)- 40 grams = 1/2 cup for dry ingredients. The nut butter- 190 grams is pretty much 3/4 cup. 🙂
