Rich and creamy homemade chocolate truffles made with almond butter and a hint of sea salt for a perfect balance of flavors!
You guys. I’m cranky.
There’s Facebook drama going on, which is like a time warp back to 7th grade. Daylight Saving Time, making me want to go to bed at 6pm. And this beyond awful election, where apparently everyone in their right mind has forgotten that nowhere in the history of elections are you going to change someone’s mind.
Over breakfast this morning, my son mentioned a conversation the boys were having on the playground about the candidates. Their eight years old! I told him to stay out of it…and that there would be chocolate waiting for him when he and his sister got home from school.
That is, unless I eat all of these truffles first. Because, omg, I need ALL.THE.CHOCOLATE. today.
I hope you love this delicious and easy recipe – be sure to give it a review below! Also don’t forget to follow Belly Full on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube!

The fact that I’m hearing so many stories about kids perpetuating some of the AWFUL things that have come along with this election…just terrible. Definitely in favor of shoving chocolate at them to get them to stay out of it!
I collect truffle recipes and this one is unique and sounds scrumptious! Definitely going to add it to the assortment for this years holidays.
Thank you for sharing!
As for the election, I just don’t want to talk about it, ‘k?
Sharing on my page soon. But I’m in favor of feeding kids chocolate to get them to stop talking about politics!
That looks amazing!
These look SO delicious Amy! Definitely adding to my must make list
Great use for almond butter…..we love it right out of the jar….but now I can add chocolate to it…great for Christmas giving….
Ugh I feel you!! And it’s sad that 8 year olds are even getting involved and probably feeling the stress! These truffles help A LOT!!
I’m sorry you’re having a rough day Amy! I can’t believe the kids were talking about the election. Ahh! All the chocolate please!!
