These chocolate truffles have the addition of cream cheese and graham crackers along with the standard powdered sugar and almonds, which are optional. Having said that, however, note that almonds are extremely nutrient-rich; a handful (one-ounce or about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of vitamin E. Almonds are also rich in protein (6 grams per ounce), as well as magnesium and manganese and area good source of copper, fiber and the B vitamin riboflavin.
