Check out that tall stack of creamy, meltable decadence all dressed up in lavender and hibiscus petals. These little darlings are wearing their fancy clothes today.
To be totally honest, these almond butter cups aren’t made with white chocolate at all. Nope, not even an ounce. They’re made with coconut butter which, let’s be honest, is basically white chocolate’s plant-based sister. Coconut butter is aligned with white chocolate on many fronts: texture, richness, creaminess, and meltability (look at me making up words; my high school English teacher is probably retired and cringing in a far-off tropical place), which makes it the perfect stand-in when in a vegan-white-chocolate pinch. It also contains an abundance of healthy fats known as Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), which work wonders for optimizing brain function.
