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!
