No-Bake Almond Joy Cheesecake Truffles (Keto)
When I saw Sam's picture of these gorgeous truffles I had to make them and I'm so glad I did! https://mouthwateringmotivation.com/2018/01/25/no-bake-almond-joy-cheesecake-truffles-keto/I like mine chilled more than frozen as I think you can taste the flavors better, but if you like them frozen, go for it!
Sam didn't list the exact amounts of the topping so when I made them I did weigh them. I also skipped the almond in each truffle as my son dislikes large pieces of nuts in his desserts, but feel free to include them. I have also found European measurements (in spoons) is often different from American so I made these according to the weight listed.
One last comment before we get to the recipe, the nutritional analysis includes all the melted chocolate and the almond-coconut topping although it isn't all used so the macros are actually a little lower than what is listed!
