No-Bake Amaretto Truffles - A Family Feast

No-Bake Amaretto Truffles

  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 2 dozen


Dry Ingredients

  • 1¼ cup crushed amaretti cookies(If you cannot find, substitute graham crackers but the amaretti cookies are preferable for the best flavor)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds plus another ½ cup to roll the truffles in
  • ¼ cup dried apricots chopped
  • ½ cup ground golden flax seed (this is available pretty much everywhere but we found it in a club store)

Wet Ingredients

  • ½ cup almond butter (OK to substitute any nut butter if you wish but almond butter works best)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 4 tablespoons amaretto


  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Combine all wet ingredients in a medium bowl then add to dry bowl. Mix until combined into a sticky dough.
  3. Divide dough into 24 pieces (roll into a log, cut in quarters and each quarter in half and each piece into thirds).
  4. Roll one at a time between your palms and while still wet and sticky, press into the chopped almonds. Repeat process for each truffle. If the dough dries out before you roll, spray with a small squirt of pan spray and re-roll.
  5. Store refrigerated.
