Instructions Checklist

  • Place remaining 1/3 cup almonds on a plate. Roll balls in the almonds until coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

Use 1/3 cup shaved dark chocolate in place of cocoa powder if desired.

If you want a creamier texture, blend in more pumpkin puree. If you want it drier, add more coconut.

Excellent dessert/ snack! Best chilled as recommended. Tastes like a small moist brownie! I recently started eating vegan for health reasons. This is a wonderful healthy option. I left out the coconut and still delicious! Even my picky friends loved it! I toasted my almonds a personal preference. Enjoy! Read More
