Almond Coconut Chocolate Drops

So my guilty Paleo pleasure is everytime I have almond butter and Enjoy Life chocolate chips in the house, I eat a spoon of almond butter followed by a handful of chocolate chips.  Well this is what I came up with to create it into an allowed once in a while snack instead of me sneaking around all the time haha.

Instructions
  1. First melt your ghee in a mixing bowl in the microwave
  2. Next add your almond butter to that bowl and mix well and then place back in the microwave for about 60 seconds more to soften it to make it more moldable
  3. Mix in the salt and coconut and ensure an even distribution of all ingredients
  4. Once mixed, line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper and roll the mixture into little balls, between ½ inch or 1 inch
  5. Place on the sheet and put in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to let the almond butter set
  6. In a sauce pan over low heat or a double broiler, melt your chocolate chips
  7. Dip your almond butter balls in the chocolate, you can just dip half or the hole thing and then place back on your parchment paper
  8. Once all is dipped and back on your baking sheet, place back in the refrigerator for about an hour so everything solidifies. Remove and enjoy

  1. OMG where have you been all my life?! :) I need a little something sweet (chocolate) every night – it’s a habit since childhood I refuse to break – and I’ve been struggling with how to do it right since becoming Paleo-ish. These are the answer! Almond butter, chocolate and coconut?! Heaven. I used the freezer instead of the fridge to speed things up and firm up jarred almond butter and they were fantastic. I have to make 1/2 the recipe at a time so I don’t eat too many. Thank you thank you!

  2. These are delicious! I had the same problem with my almond butter being too runny. Finally after refrigerating more than 24 hours and adddibg more coconut, I was able to get a small disc shape. I popped them in the freezer for several minutes which allowed me to dip them in the chocolate and throw that in the freezer! Next I’ll try a different almond butter. Definitely satisfies the craving!

  3. They sound marvelous! I would ditch the microwave and soften the ghee and almond butter on stovetop. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  4. Thanks for this idea. I make my own chocolate, and usually put a piece of apricot or a blueberry in the chocolate moulds, for a different taste. Now I’m thinking I could put a bit of almond butter in my moulds for a soft centre! I’ll have to start experimenting.

  5. How excited was I that ENJOY LIFE chocolate chips were on sale at my SPROUTS???? I ran home and this recipe is chilling in my refrigerator RIGHT NOW. I plan to eat all 6 I’m making because a) no one else likes coconut in my house and b) I ran a half marathon yesterday, I deserve a treat.

  6. Hmmm, wonder if this would work homemade hazelnut butter? I am, unfortunately, allergic to almonds, but other nuts are fine….

  7. George,

    I made my own almond butter at the store yesterday, and I have to say 1. freshly ground almond butter is freakin' amazing! lol And 2. it really did make a tremendous difference in the consistency of these awesome drops… I'm very happy with them. =) Again, thank you!

  8. Cebon, I am so glad you love them, I make my own almond butter so it is chunkier and stays together better

  9. So I've made this three times… each batch is AMAZINGLY delicious, but they look nothing like your pictures – they completely flatten out into thin discs, and dipping them is a no-go. (I just drop small spoonfuls of the chocolate onto the paper, then a spoonful of the mixture onto the chocolate.) I tried adding a bit of almond flour the second time, and more coconut the third time, but neither seemed to give the consistency it appears you've achieved. I'm wondering if it has to do with the type of almond butter? What do you use?

    Regardless of their shape, I love them!!! =) Thank you for sharing…

    1. I am having the same problem, my almond butter is too runny. Did you ever come up with a solution to keeping them together?

    2. I use “Roasted” Almond Butter and NOT “Raw” Almond Butter when making these types of treats. The Roasted AB is much thicker than the Raw AB.

  10. These look wonderful! I'm going to give them a try. I too sneak around and eat almond butter and chocolate chips! Too funny.
