White Chocolate Almond Truffles (vegan, naturally sweetened)
If you’ve not fallen in love with real white chocolate, you’re missing out!
White chocolate comes from rich, velvety cacao butter (or cocoa butter). It’s creamy and radiates that classic chocolate aroma that we are all familiar with.
Wildly Organic’s Cacao Butter is simply the best! This Fair Trade-certified cacao butter is as unrefined as you can get and makes the most perfect treats. For best results, cacao butter should be melted in a double boiler and removed from heat promptly. See the recipe notes below for an easy, DIY double boiler.
Real Food White Chocolate Almond Truffles
These truffles are a perfect for so many occasions — a pick-me-up on a slow afternoon or a romantic treat for a special someone.
In short, these truffles can be made and enjoyed any day, any time, anywhere.
These Real Food White Chocolate Almond Truffles have a double dose of almond flavor. The filling is made with Wildly Organic’s Soaked and Dehydrated Almond Butter and Almond Flour, making this a protein-packed treat. Because of this, the protein and fat from the almond ingredients balance the sugar content beautifully.
Speaking of sugar, these truffles are actually lightly sweetened with mineral-rich maple syrup!
Have You Ever Made White Chocolate?
It’s incredibly simple but does involve a bit of prep time.
The most important thing to remember when making chocolate? You need milk solids to create that rich and smooth texture. Wildly Organic’s Coconut Milk Powder works so wonderfully in this recipe because it allows you to create that creamy consistency.
When melting the cacao butter with the coconut milk powder, you may find that the white chocolate is a little on the thin side. It’s important to chill it first — before coating the truffles with it. The white chocolate will become thicker and whiter as it cools.
Top the truffles with some toasted, slivered almonds as soon as the truffles are coated with the chocolate. Toasting the almonds brings out more flavor and makes these Real Food White Chocolate Almond Truffles absolutely delightful.
This is definitely a Real Food chocolate candy recipe to drool over!

DIY Double Boiler -- A double boiler can easily be recreated at home with a small saucepan and bowl. The bowl has to be slightly larger than the pot. Fill a small saucepan 1/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and place the bowl into the pot, making sure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. The cocoa butter is gently melted by the steam created by the water. Use caution when handling the bowl as it will be hot.
