Recipe: No-Bake Almond Butter Truffles | Hudson County Moms
These no-bake Almond Butter Truffles are a hit with kids but sophisticated enough for grown up palates, too. Love that the only equipment you need is a hand mixer and a microwave, so you don’t need to be a pastry chef to play one in real life. Enjoy!

Thanks to Katina Moutanos, the founder of Kosterina, a high-quality line of olive oil, vinegar, chocolate and more, for sharing. 


  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 – 2.1oz. Kosterina Almond Butter & Vanilla Dark Chocolate bar, chopped into small pieces
  • 3-4 tbsp. milk of your choice
  • 1 ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil


  1. Using a hand mixer, beat together butter, brown sugar, almond butter, and vanilla.
  2. Gently combine flour and Kosterina chocolate pieces in a small bowl. Fold the dry mixture into the butter and sugar, gradually adding milk as needed (the consistency should be similar to cookie dough).
  3. Using a mini ice cream scoop or tablespoon (the truffles should be about 1”-1½” in diameter), create evenly sized balls of dough and roll to smooth.
  4. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  5. Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil together until smooth, in either a double-boiler or microwave, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove truffles from freezer and dip into melted chocolate to coat. Allow excess chocolate to drip off and set on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  7. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  8. Once the chocolate has set, use the extra melted chocolate to drizzle over the truffles.
  9. Garnish with chopped almonds or sea salt.
