  • Melt the cacao paste slowly in a bowl over simmering water (double boiler).
  • Mix in the chopped pecans, 4 tablespoons of melted coconut butter (reserve the remaining ¼ cup for dipping), honey, vanilla extract and salt, until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoonful of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your hands, shape each truffle into 1-inch balls. The batter will be slightly crumbly, so shape each truffle gently and set it on the pan.
  • Insert a lollipop stick into the center of each truffle and freeze for 20 minutes.
  • Dip chilled truffles, one at the time, in melted coconut butter, then roll in shredded coconut. Set truffles back on the parchment paper.
  • Press three chocolate chips into each truffle to create a cute face.
  • Keep refrigerated as the coconut butter melts at temperatures above 72°F.


* You can make your own coconut butter by placing 2 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor and processing until it is creamy and smooth. Alternatively, you can purchase coconut butter in jars. A good brand I can recommend is listed below. To melt the coconut butter, place the jar in a large bowl with hot water.
