Chocolate almond balls:
1/2 cup almond butter ( used Trader Joes creamy unsalted)
3 TBSP organic butter- softened
1 TBSP Stevia
Mix ingredients and freeze it for an hour or so.( you will later dip them in the chocolate!)
Chocolate: ( for both almond butter balls and almond bar)
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate (or 6 TBSP unsweet cocoa + 2 TBSP unsalted organic butter)
2 1/2 oz. organic expeller pressed coconut oil (HT has it)
2 tsp Stevia
6 TBSP organic whipping cream
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in microwave for about 2 minutes at 50% power. (Check it every 45 seconds and stir)
It's better for it to be soft than to be bubbling!
Mix in Stevia.
(If you have a thermometer, check to see when mixture is at 80 degrees. At this temperature put it back in the microwave for about 20 seconds at 50% power.)
Add the whipping cream and stir.
For almond butter balls:
Remove almond butter from the freezer and use TBSP size amounts to roll into balls.
Place on wax paper.
Use a tooth pick or skewer to pick up the balls and dip them into the chocolate.
Place back on wax paper and put in freezer.
For chocolate almond bar:
Put unsalted almonds (whole or chopped) into bowl of chocolate mixture.
Put in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
