Chai Tea Turtle Truffles
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 36
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 Numi Organic Rooibos Chai Tea bags
  • 1 11-oz bag milk chocolate chips (we used Equal Exchange Organic Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips -- also delicious!)
  • ⅓ cup refrigerated caramel dip
  • 1¼ cup toasted nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts, etc.), finely chopped
  1. Heat cream in microwave for 1 minute. Add tea bags and let steep 2-3 minutes. Remove bags and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Place the chocolate in a microwavable dish.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute and stir with a spoon. Keep microwaving and stirring every 30 seconds until chocolate can be completely stirred and is melted. Mix in the chai cream and microwave another 30 seconds.
  4. Add the refrigerated caramel dip to the chocolate mixture. Stir until smooth and combined.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm, at least 1 hour.
  6. Using a teaspoon, remove and form 1 inch balls of the chocolate mixture. Roll with hands like a snow ball. Then roll in pecans. Place on wax paper.
  7. Truffles can be placed in paper / foil candy cups. Chill until ready to serve.
