*If you would like slightly less sweet chocolate fudge truffles, roll your truffles in shredded coconut. If you prefer sweeter truffles, roll them all in coconut sugar.
**For best texture, let truffles sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before serving after extended periods of refrigeration.
***Truffles keep for 7-10 days if refrigerated properly.

    1. Hi Brittany! A few things that might have caused this: 1) The almond butter is not smooth enough. 2) They need to be processed longer. 3) The type of food processor you are using is not quite strong enough. You can always add a touch more coconut milk to make it more batter-like! Hope this helps 🙂

    This was delicious!!! Tastes like brownie batter. Mine was pretty soft and not able to be rolled into balls, so I put it in the fridge to firm up.

    1. That was a great idea, Marie! The cold temp will help firm up the coconut oil. Thanks so much for your comment and rating!
