Ingredients

  • 10 oz chocolate of choice milk, dark, dairy-free, etc.
  • ½ cup canned full-fat coconut milk

Instructions

  • Before measuring out coconut milk, blend milk or shake can thoroughly so it’s well-integrated and there are no clumps.
  • Finely dice chocolate and add to a bowl.
  • Add coconut milk to a saucepan and heat until warm and just beginning to simmer, but not boiling.
  • Remove saucepan from heat, add chocolate, and stir. Cover with a lid to trap the heat.
  • Allow to sit for 5 minutes and then gently stir—keeping the heat trapped as much as possible—until melted. Microwave to finish melting if needed.
  • Transfer mixture to a dish and place dish in the fridge few hours, until set and mostly solid. When a knife comes out mostly clean, it’s ready!
  • Use a mini cookie scoop (1-Tbsp size) to scoop out small truffle balls.
  • OPTIONAL: Roll truffles in cocoa powder to coat, shaking off any extra powder.
  • Transfer truffles to a parchment-lined tray or plate and store in the fridge for a few hours, until set.
  • Thaw at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving for softer, creamier truffles!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
  • Yields 18 chocolate truffles.

  •  For paleo truffles: use 100% dark or unsweetened chocolate.
