An easy Almond Butter Chocolate Truffles filled with a creamy center, shredded coconut, chocolate chips and sliced almonds. It’s also gluten/egg/dairy-free!
I don’t know about you, but I love this time of the year because I get all excited for all the festivities with family and friends. I feel so happy to be around people that I love. This year we’re spending Christmas and New Year’s Eve here in Brazil with my family and we are already enjoying all the preparations for these two holidays. We put up the tree and my sister’s home is all decorated. It’s hard though to keep all the Christmas ornaments in the right place when you have small kids in the house. But it’s all good 😉
This weekend I was testing some new baking recipes for Christmas. Some cookies were amazing like my Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies, Cranberry Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies! Other not so much! But our favourite was these Almond Butter Chocolate Truffles. They were so delicious that in two days they disappeared. I’m not kidding!
The good thing is these Almond Butter Chocolate Truffles are healthier than the traditional truffle recipes because I made them with good-for-you ingredients such as almond butter, sugar-free chocolate chips, unsweetened shredded coconut and sliced almonds. These truffles are also gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly.
They were insanely good!! I made these Almond Butter Chocolate Truffles with ingredients I already had on hand, and it took me only 10 minutes to prepare them. It’s so easy, and you don’t even need to bake.
You just need to add all the ingredients into a bowl, mix well, and with your hands, form the dough into small balls. Then you will freeze them for 20 minutes and cover them with melted chocolate. It’s incredibly easy that even your kids can help you. Along with these Christmas Almond Chocolate Cups, they’re the perfect treat for your Christmas Eve dinner party! Enjoy!
