I first came across RX Nut Butter Vanilla Almond Butter on a recent trip to Albertsons. As I was stocking up on holiday baking essentials (and again thankfully, I can find everything I need at my local Albertsons), I spied a display of RX Nut Butters and was immediately intrigued. Almond butter is a snack time staple in our house, but we had not really ventured into the world of flavored varieties. And the Vanilla Almond Butter seemed perfect for incorporating into a delectable, better-for-you holiday treat. I grabbed a few jars (okay, several jars) and as soon as I got home, I immediately got to work.
WHY RX NUT BUTTER IS THE BEST
RX Nut Butter ingredients are wholesome, nutritious, and delicious. With only a handful of simple ingredients, each one is added for a reason, this nut butter is perfect for a spread or even just the spoon! With 9 grams of protein and no B.S. it’s the perfect snack—or in this case, almond butter truffles!
I love to make several batches of these to keep on hand for gifting throughout the holiday season. And this year’s version is extra protein-packed, thanks to the addition of Vanilla Almond Butter. You know when you bake cookies and your whole house smells like a sweet, sugary delight? That’s this, but also having a handful of core ingredients. By using real and simple ingredients, they took almond butter to a whole new level! I love that this flavor combination of almond and vanilla pairs perfectly with cranberries and white chocolate. Hence the recipe for these Vanilla Almond Butter Truffles!
How to Make Vanilla Almond Butter Truffles
- Microwave the almond butter and honey in a microwave-safe bowl for about 30-45 seconds.
- Add cranberries and puffed rice for added texture. You can also use mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and different spices to get different flavored almond butter truffles.
- Use a cookie scoop to scoop out balls evenly.
- Use damp hands to roll into smooth balls.
- Refrigerate the balls for at least one hour before dipping
- Use coconut oil to thin out white chocolate while melting
- You can decorate these for any occasion with different colored sprinkles and garnishes!
WHAT KIND OF CHOCOLATE TO USE TO MAKE ALMOND TRUFFLES
When dipping almond butter truffles, I like to use either white or dark chocolate chips. I melt them with a little coconut oil to create thinner dipping chocolate. You can also use candy coating wafers for easy dipping.
