Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) -
Join the WOTV 4 Women Crew for the Holiday Cookie Exchange! Our experts are sharing their favorite holiday baking recipes including this delicious (and guilt-free) truffle from Wellness expert Michele Fife!
I love to entertain and I really love surprising people with great tasting food that is also healthy and vegan! I think people tend to assume that because I do not consume animal products that I also have given up on taste and that is simply untrue!
This truffle recipe is so easy it can be made in minutes, and rolling the different toppings on can be a family affair. You will not be disappointed with these yummy treats. -Om Shanti ~Michele
