Chocolate Truffles (Dairy Free)
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces dairy-free chocolate chips
  • ½ cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup natural nut butter
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
For Coating
  • Cocoa
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Chocolate Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Melt the chocolate chips according to package instructions (I used the microwave).
  2. In a sauce pan, heat the coconut milk, nut butter and salt, whisking together until hot and smooth. Remove from heat.
  3. Whisk in the melted chocolate and vanilla until thoroughly combined and smooth.
  4. Chill for several hours.
  5. Assemble coating ingredients in small bowls. You can combine cocoa and powdered sugar if cocoa alone is too bitter. Get creative and try other coatings too.
  6. If very cold, let the chocolate mixture sit out for about 20 minutes to soften a little. Use a spoon to scoop up about one tablespoon of truffle mixture.
  7. Soften and shape into a ball using the palms of your hands.
  8. Roll the ball in coating of choice. Place on a plate or in mini paper baking cups.
  9. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
