Vegan Tahini Truffles for Lent
Truffles for Lent? Yes, because as my blaspheming husband recently said, “I’m not Jesus.” That comment shocked me initially until I realized he was verbalizing in a crude way what many of us feel during this time — we are weak and sometimes need chocolate. Ok, I feel like that almost every day and Lent is no different. And I am not too proud to admit that I licked the chocolate off my hands AFTER I finished making these truffles for church. And, yes, I secretly believe that dark chocolate is a magical gift that was provided to us especially for Lent. Kind of like manna in the dessert. Like I said. I am weak.
