I haven’t had truffles in forever! I remember when I did have them, I loved them (but who doesn’t love anything chocolate?). I saw this recipe for these delicious treats in the Whole Living Magazine.
8oz. of dark chocolate (I used my homemade chocolate chip sauce instead)
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
1/4 cup of pure cocoa powder (for rolling)
Heat chocolate in a pot until melted. Remove from heat, and stir in the rest of the ingredients, except for the cocoa powder. Add the liquid chocolate into a bowl and place it in the fridge until cold and somewhat hard but still pliable. Take out of fridge, scoop out chocolate into small ball/round shapes and roll into cocoa powder. Repeat until all chocolate is used up. Place the truffles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Place in the fridge until firm.
Note- If you are using the chocolate chip sauce recipe like I did, you just use that recipe for your chocolate, not the one listed above. The same ingredients are used in both recipes, just different measurements.
