Crunchy almond butter truffles

Crunchy, Creamy, CHOCOLATEY

Just yesterday, I was thinking about how it’s been a while since I made a mind-blowing dessert for the blog. I was like “this has gotta change” and blitzed into the kitchen in a sweets-crazed fury. I knew I wanted it to be something crunchy, creamy, and coated in chocolate. When the fam heard me playing Hamilton without singing along, they knew it was serious business.

And boom. This creation was everything I’d had in mind, and I’m SO PUMPED to share this recipe with you.
