Ezra Cohen Montreal believes creating that perfect, healthy dessert shouldn’t be impossible. Typical recipes for health-conscious desserts usually remove sugar, caramel, chocolate, and those other tasty parts that make a dessert, itself. Instead of taking away, we encourage customers to use our nut butters and enhance their experience with delicious taste, that’s both healthy and wholesome.
Today, we’ve shared a recipe to create an easy, tasty, and healthy dessert dish, Chocolate Almond Butter Bites. As you may have guessed, this recipe calls for the use of our well-known, all-natural almond nut butter. The preparation time is only 25 minutes, and the small portion of the required cooking only takes a few additional minutes. That means in half an hour, you can have a delicious, healthy treat ready to eat! Just follow our instructions below:
Here’s What You’ll Need
½ cup of our all-natural almond butter
3 tablespoons butter, softened
¾ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate for melting (chips or chopped)–> you can also substitute dark chocolate chips here to reduce total sugar content!
optional: slivered almonds for garnish→ feel free to garnish as you like, but we recommend slivered almonds that pair well with the almond butter
Preparation/ Cooking Instructions
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to blend almond butter and regular butter until you have a smooth consistency.
While simultaneously mixing, gradually add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract until fully incorporated. *The amount of powdered sugar may vary depending on the amount of almond butter, use enough until the bites can hold their shape easily
Using 2 teaspoons, form the bites and place them on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Melt chocolate chips according to package instructions, usually inside a bowl using a microwave.
Dip the bites one at a time into the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. *At this point, you can garnish with a slivered almond on top of each bite, or however you please.
Allow chocolate to firm up before eating. To quicken the process, place in the refrigerator. Once the almond butter bites have hardened on the outside, they are ready to serve, eat, and enjoy!
The recipe is easy and simple to follow, does not require a large amount of kitchenware, and comes with a quick cleanup process. These dessert bites can also make perfect appetizers and hors d’oeuvres for cocktail parties and small banquets. Don’t settle for healthy desserts that are tasteless or bland, try incorporating our amazing nut butters and feel healthy, while tasting excellence.
