The recipe for these caramel apple cake ball truffles is actually very similar to the no-bake confetti cake batter truffles I shared with y’all a few years ago!
This time I substituted the butter with Crisco® Refined Organic Coconut Oil to make this indulgent recipe a little less guilty!
If you’ve been on the hunt for an organic substitute for butter or margarine, refined coconut oil is the way to go! Since it’s refined, it doesn’t have the flavor or aroma of coconut!
On the other hand, unrefined coconut oil retains the distinct coconut flavor and odor, if that’s what you’d prefer! Both are great better-for-you alternatives for cooking and baking.
These truffle balls are fairly simple to make and use common ingredients you may already even have on hand! I enjoy making these for holidays and family and friend get togethers since it’s an easy recipe that makes a large batch to serve everyone.
I’ve always heard great things about using coconut oil as a butter or margarine substitute, but I’ll admit I was hesitant to do so at first in fear of messing something up. Let me tell y’all, there’s no reason to worry! The coconut oil substitute worked perfectly.
You can find the refined coconut oil used for this recipe at Target, and right now Crisco® is running a Cartwheel offer for 25% off all varieties until 10/7/17!
