Here comes something really simple yet totally sophisticated. We bring sweet and savoury together in these delicious goat's cheese chocolate truffles with a cranberry kick. A different kind of indulgence for people who love to explore new worlds of flavour.

level of difficulty
In a bowl, combine fresh goat cheese, maple syrup, salt, chopped dried cranberries and almond butter. Stir until incorporated.
Let rest in the fridge for about 1 hour.
Now, using your hands, take a bit of cheese mixture and form about 15 balls (the mixture will be sticky, it’s normal) – if you want to make things easier: use a small cookie scoop.
Let them set in the freezer for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, put your cranberry chocolate chunks into a metal bowl and melt them over hot double-boiler. Afterwards let the molten chocolate cool down a little bit.
Using a fork dip each cheese ball in the chocolate. Place the truffles on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and allow them to firm up a bit.
Let set in the fridge, then enjoy!
