  2. For rolling:

  7. Mix everything in a medium bowl, using a fork to gently combine. Scoop out balls, about 2 teaspoon size of the mix. Roll gently to cover in your topping of choice. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator till trail time.
  8. To carry:
  9. Pack in a small plastic box to protect. A lightweight ‘sandwich box’ works well and can do double duty as a dinner bowl afterward!
Notes:[br]We use a ‘disher’ to do the scooping, these can be found in any well stocked kitchen department. They keep your hands mess free and make evenly sized truffles![br]Use any nut butter (or even sunflower butter!) to your liking. Natural style butters (where the oil separates) will result in a softer truffle, where the mixed kind is firmer.[br]this recipe was featured in the November/December issue of Washington Trails Magazine on page 27.[br]http://www.wta.org/trail-news/magazine
