How to Make the Best Ever Healthy Birthday Cake Truffles
This recipe is so simple and really easy to make. You’ll be in and out of the kitchen in less than 40 minutes! And all you need is baking sheet, parchment paper, a mixing bowl, a freezer, and a microwave.
Here, I’ll walk you through the steps to make these delicious, healthy, and festive birthday cake truffles!
First, line a baking tray that will fit in your freezer with parchment paper.
Then, in a large bowl, combine almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, almond extract, and coconut flour. Mix together with a spatula. Then, fold in whatever sprinkles you want!
Next, using your hands, roll around 12 to 14 golf-sized balls and space them out evenly on your baking tray. Chill the balls in the freezer for 10 – 15 minutes while you prepare the chocolate.
Add your favorite white chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and add in the coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave again for 20 seconds. Stir. Continue this process until your chocolate is completely melted. You do not want to burn the chocolate. This is the easiest and most time effective way to melt your white chocolate! If you are feeling adventurous you can melt over the stovetop with a water bath.
Once the birthday cake truffles are done chilling, dunk each one into the white chocolate. I fish mine out using two forks or spoons and place them on the lined baking sheet. The chocolate will dry fast so add your topping sprinkles after each dunk! Freeze again for another 20 minutes and enjoy!
I highly recommend storing them in the fridge like me. It makes them taste so much better. Trust me.
How to Store Extra Healthy Soft Birthday Cake Truffles
