cocoa truffles

These were so easy and so melt-in-your-mouth rich that I couldn’t not share.

My toddler and I made these together on a whim, it was great fun- he helped me swirl the truffles in cocoa powder at the end. and put them on a plate… and now I need to clean cocoa powder out of every nook and cranny in my kitchen :)

Easy Homemade Chocolate Truffle Recipe

Makes approximately 40 truffles

  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream (the cream from the top of an unsweetened can of coconut, Natural Value doesn’t have any additives in it)

Directions:

(These are amazingly simple!) Mix all ingredients in a small mixing bowl with a fork, making sure to mix bottom and sides in well.  Cover and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes or until firm.  Pour a little more cocoa, or shredded coconut or chopped nuts, into a shallow bowl (about 2 tablespoons) for the coating.

Scoop out a small spoonful of the hardened chocolate, gently roll it in your hands, and drop it in the bowl with coating.  Once you have a couple you can gently swirl the bowl to cover the ball with the cocoa powder. This was the part my toddler got a kick out of.  Then place the covered truffles on a plate and repeat with the remaining chocolate.

*Dr. Natasha allows cocoa once digestive symptoms have passed.
