For the truffles:
- 300g dairy-free dark chocolate
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 240ml light coconut milk
- Teaspoon of peppermint/orange/vanilla/almond/coffee extract (I personally love peppermint flavour!)
For the topping:
- Cacao or carob powder
- Desiccated coconut
- Chopped up nuts
- Break the chocolate up into little pieces in a large bowl. Add the coconut oil and coconut milk to the bowl. Mix together and transfer to a saucepan. Heat the mixture on a low heat, until the chocolate is fully melted and combined with the coconut oil and coconut milk.
- Remove the warm mixture of coconut milk, coconut oil and chocolate from the stove and transfer back into the bowl. Add your desired extract and gently mix together. Leave the mixture to stand and cool down for at least 30 minutes to an hour – until it is completely cool.
- Cover the bowl in cling wrap and transfer to the fridge. Leave to cool for four hours – or even overnight.
When the mixture is nearly set, remove from the fridge. If it’s been in overnight, you may have to allow the mixture to warm for 15-20 minutes.
- Now the fun part! Get yourself a few bowls and fill with your desired toppings. Use a teaspoon to scoop small amounts of the chocolate truffle mixture and roll them into balls in your hands.
- Now roll them in your favourite toppings! Repeat until your mixture is finished! Store the truffles in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy after a dinner.
