Weight Watchers Points
There are 6 Freestyle Points in a serving of Beetroot Covered Chocolate Truffles.
- In addition to the beetroot powder, you can also roll the truffles in cocoa powder or finely chopped nuts. Or, you can use all 3 to make a flavourful assortment.
- To avoid staining your hands red, wear plastic gloves when rolling the truffles in the beetroot powder.
- The number of truffles this recipe yields depends on how big or small you make them. I was able to get approximately 30 truffles that were 1-inch round.
