4 Halloween Treats Made With Natural Almond Butter
Almond Butter Cups
This is a new take on a Halloween favorite. Make your own peanut butter cups, replacing the peanut butter with natural almond butter, and using cocoa, honey, and other healthy alternatives for creating these treats. If you’d rather go for almond butter balls coated in chocolate, you can do that too! The best part is, these are no-bake treats. Simply combine almond butter, honey, and rolled oats in a mixing bowl. Making your own chocolate sauce by melting dark chocolate or using cocoa. Then, coat the almond butter in the chocolate, and refrigerate for an hour or until the chocolate hardens. Then serve in decorative Halloween cupcake cups and enjoy!
