Jordan Almond Truffle Recipe

These treats seem fancy — but you make ’em in the microwave!

Learning Benefits

Makes 20 truffles

What You Need:

  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 12 oz white chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 7.5-oz package Jordan almonds

What to Do:

1. Combine heavy cream and chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 15- to 20- second intervals, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted and cream is incorporated.

2. Stir in almond extract and a pinch of salt; refrigerate until set but moldable, about 1 hour.

3. Crush different colors of almonds in the food processor, one color at a time; place in separate bowls.

4. Scoop 1 Tbsp of truffle mixture and roll between your hands to form a small ball. Roll in almonds to coat. Repeat, alternating almond colors until truffle mixture is gone.
