Back to these truffles 🙂 ...
This recipe is really simple to make.
As you can see, you only need 4 ingredients! One of them is my Homemade Chocolate Sprinkles recipe. But you can also roll your truffles in chopped nuts, shredded coconut or cacao powder. Or like me sometimes, don't roll it at all, and just eat a spoon daily straight from the pan ?.
What I love about these is that they have a dark chocolate taste and the chocolate sprinkles makes them just a little sweeter and crunchy.
And although they are made with coconut products, you can't taste the coconut much. The dominant flavor is definitely chocolate.
I hope you enjoy these and if you make them, please post a photo in the comments below so I can see them ?.
Dark Chocolate Truffle with Homemade Chocolate Sprinkles
- In a medium saucepan, stir the coconut milk and coconut sugar and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. As soon as it starts to bubble, stir frequently for 20 minutes. Then remove from the stove top and mix in the cacao powder. Return to the stove let it cook for an additional 10 minutes, stirring frequently so that it doesn't burn.
- Remove from stove and let it cool of 5 minutes, then freeze for 10 minutes.
- Using a handheld electrical mixer, whip the mixture for a few seconds and return pan to the freezer for another 10 minutes.
- Whip the mixture with the mixer again until it thickens and turns lighter in color.
- Grease your hands with coconut oil. Roll into balls, then roll on the chocolate sprinkles (if you plan to roll it at a later time, cover pan and store in the fridge).
