Chocolate Mousse Truffles

Now that I have fallen in love with homemade almond milk, I am going to have to get creative with the leftover almond pulp.  I’ve already discovered Almond and Zucchini Hummus.  This time I thought I’d experiment with something savory.  The almond pulp gives these truffles a light, airy quality.  They are delicate and faintly sweet.  If you wanted a more pronounced sweetness, I’d add some maple syrup.  For my taste, these are perfect.  -Amanda
