Recipe: Crispy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites {treat bag printable!}

Print Friendly

Are you a fan of chocolate? I thought so. Coconut oil and almond butter are all the rage so imagine my excitement when I found this recipe! Well–it’s not exactly the recipe I found. I made a few modifications to the original. Hope you enjoy! (This would be a great treat for Valentine’s Day!)

NOTE: These need to be kept chilled in a fridge or freezer, but if you are like me, they didn’t really have much hang time at either place! ha!

Crispy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites

♦ 1/4 cup coconut oil

♦ 1/2 cup cocoa powder

♦ 1/2 cup smooth almond butter

♦ 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup

♦ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

♦ 1 cup crispy rice

Directions:

Melt the coconut oil in a microwave or stovetop. Add all the ingredients (EXCEPT THE CRISPY RICE) in a blender or food processor. (I prefer my food processor) Blend. Dump in the crispy rice and stir.

Place the mixture in silicone trays or mini muffin tins with muffin tin wrappers. Put in the refrigerator or freezer to set. (Minimum 10 minutes.) If using a silicone tray and you want a smoother finish, really press them firmly into the tray. You may have to play around with a few!

Depending on how thick or big you want them will depend on how many the batch will make. If you want to give this to friends, you will probably want to double. If it’s just for you and hubby, just make one batch. I did place some in a thicker, larger silicone tray and WHOA!  That was one piece of spectacular chocolate! :) A little goes a long way with this which is awesome!

I teach pilates at a college so I like to gift my students with treats every once in a while. I made these cute bags with the verse to give them!

 

Here are two verse printables for you! You can right click the image, save to your desktop and print, or do like I did, and bring them into keynote (powerpoint) or pages (word) and resize them and print! I created one that is a basic white background if you want to glue them to a colorful cardstock, or one with more design if you just want to print if off by itself! Enjoy!

  1. This is so adorable Clare!

  2. I love this . I almost bought box of this kind of candy for my teen girl yesterday. So glad I didn’t. I will make these and better than the store bought for us! Thank you!

  3. I pinned these on two of my boards. I love your heart for the women you lead – there’s not many trainers who would take the time to do something like this for the women in their class. You rock!

  4. These were absolutely delicious! Super chocolatey so they hit my chocolate craving head on. Thanks for sharing at Pilates! This recipe is a keeper!

  6. I put a spoon of ground chia in my morning smoothy. A good way to sneak its goodness in.
