Quick & Easy
The recipe itself only takes a few minutes. You need to blend the ingredients, roll the balls, and let them freeze for at least 30 minutes. Then all you have to do is roll the balls in melted chocolate, and let them harden. That’s it!
Dark Chocolate Coconut TrufflesPrint This
- 1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup (optional)
- 1 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- Dark chocolate, for melting
- Blend coconut, coconut oil, and maple syrup in a food processor until smooth enough to roll into balls.
- Grab a tray or plate that you can fit into your freezer, then line it with wax paper. Roll the mixture into little balls and place the balls on the wax paper – it’s okay if they touch a little! They can be whatever size you would like! I did mini ones about the size of the tip of my thumb.
- Place the balls uncovered in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Once the balls are frozen, place your chocolate in a microwave safe dish (a very small bowl if you have it) and put in the microwave and heat it for 30 seconds. Stir your chocolate and heat it in additional 15 or 30 seconds intervals until it has all melted.
- Lay out an additional sheet of wax paper on a flat surface. Roll each frozen coconut ball in the melted chocolate, then place each ball on the wax paper. Make sure to leave room between the truffles so that they do not touch each other.
- If you have any leftover chocolate, use your spoon to drizzle it over the dipped truffles to make them look pretty!
- Let the chocolate harden, then when the chocolate has cooled enough to touch the chocolates without smudging them, place them in a little container. Store them in the refrigerator so they do not get melty, or in the freezer if you want to store them longer. Eat your heart out.
