You read that right, kids. These are SKINNY truffles. It’s seems to be an oxymoron , I know, but I am tellin’ the truth.  They are also:

  • No bake
  • 5 ingredients
  • Simple to make
  • Yummy

I almost hate to tell you what’s inside of these pretty little things. I wish I could just feed them to you and watch your eyes get wide as I tell you they’re healthy. But since I can’t do that, I guess I will have to tell you how to make them for yourselves.

They are full of fiber and protein, and are coated in delicious dark chocolate (antioxidants, people!). Just don’t write these off after reading the ingredients. They are GOOD and even kid approved, so try them, k?

Skinny Caramel Truffles
by: Back For Seconds
Makes about 25 small truffles

  • 1 cup Fiber 1 cereal (or similar)
  • 4 oz low fat cream cheese
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp caramel extract
  • 8 oz dark chocolate
In a food processor grind cereal finely. Add cream cheese, brown sugar, and caramel extract and pulse until it all comes together. Roll into bite sized balls (be sure to keep them small) and set on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour. Melt chocolate until smooth, thinning with a bit of coconut oil if needed. Dunk the frozen truffles in the chocolate and lift out with a fork, tapping it gently to smooth. Immediately add sprinkles if desired. Store in the refrigerator but let come to room temp before eating. Enjoy!Want another skinny recipe?Need more truffles?

    Wow, skinny caramel truffles coated in chocolate? I thought I’d never ever dream of something this badass. And of course, if it has sprinkles on top, you KNOW I’m game!

    You wouldn’t think you’d hear the words “skinny” and “truffle” in the same sentence! But thank heavens! These look great! Love that they are made from Fiber 1 cereal, that is brilliant!

    Wow, these look so wonderful. I love a skinny dessert, especially one with caramel flavor! Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday this week. I can’t wait to see what you link up next. Have a great weekend.

    this may make me sound like an old woman but I actually LOVE fiber one. Seriously. It’s SO good lol. I’ve never baked or “no-baked” with it though! I love these skinny mini little guys! Stephanie, you are SO creative!

  11. says

    I love using Fiber One in recipes–people never have a clue! =) We make a really yummy/healthy faux buffalo chicken “wing” that is coated with Fiber One, and it is delicious! I never thought of putting it in a filling like this, what a great idea! Now I can eat my truffles guilt-free!

  12. says

    oh, wow! can’t believe they are skinny! awesome! stopping by via the grant life!

    Interesting recipe – I’ve never seen another like this. They look tasty – I think I’ll give it a try. Visiting from Piece o Cake link up – have a great weekend :)

  14. says

    I never would have thought to use Fiber 1 cereal in a truffle! I’m making these tomorrow.

  15. says

    Anything with the words skinny and no bake is worth trying! Thanks for the idea. I’m hosting a linky party “One Creative Weekend” at OneCreativeMommy.com. I’d love for you to visit and link up this idea and/or anything else you’d like to share.

    Amazing! I don’t know what Fibre cereal is… but I’m hoping it’s simmilar to Saltana Bran or some such. I’m about to start hosting a Mother’s group for mum’s with little babies (there are lots on our block) so I’ve been looking for little nibbles that I can set out. Thanks for the recipe! :)

  22. says

    they look delicious – but not super skinny!
    I found this on Stone Gable’s On the Menu Monday. I have linked in a fried chicken dish that you don’t want to look at if you are dieting! Have a nice week.

  23. says

    Oh my god! These look amazing!

    I would never have guessed the fiber cereal. Good call! I really want to try this!

  29. says

    Ok, first your cookie dough dip and now this. I’d say you’re taking all the fun out of dessert but with these recipes, I can eat more! I wonder if I could use Special K for these, that’s the closest I’d be able to get to a fiber cereal. I think I’ll be finding out soon! Thanks for sharing.

    I was planning on making these and the peanut butter ones but as I went shopping I cam across three different Fiber one cereals. I ended up buying the new flavors of brown sugar shredded wheat and honey clusters. I do not have or can find caramel extract so i am going to try Maple with the shredded wheat and make the peanut butter ones with the honey clusters. I will let you know next week after they are made.

      Hi, Michelle! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the truffles! I used the regular Fiber One cereal…you may be ok using the honey clusters, but I would steer clear of the shredded wheat. It may end up with a dry, unpleasant texture. I’m interested to hear how the Honey clusters work though! Enjoy!
