I got this recipe from This was Recipe #28 in the "Gluten Free Baking With KitchenAid" event. These simple little truffle bites have a wonderful balance of sweet and savoury with spicy notes reminiscent of Autumn. These are rich, decadent, sweet and satisfying. Lisa says that, "the center of this amazing truffle is a rich combination of sweet and savory that's reminiscent of a thick spice cake... brown rice syrup provides the sweetness, graham cracker crumbs give it body, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves evoke autumn, and mashed sweet potatoes give it a pumpkin-y flavor and slight seasonal orange shade." Yes! Yes! and.......YES! Lisa rolled her truffle bites in powdered sugar and miniature chocolate chips. But I rolled mine in unsweetened shredded coconut and they were AMAZING! Lisa suggests putting these in tiny cupcake liners for a lovely presentation. For more information about this recipe, check out Lisa's original blog post.
