These truffle balls are so delicious and very easy to make. They’re also less expensive and made with higher quality ingredients than store-bought. Have a few as a special after-dinner treat! These little gems are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, without derailing your nutrition goals.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy milk of choice)

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 Tbs honey (or any liquid sweetener)

  • 12 oz bittersweet chocolate (shaved or finely chopped)

  • 2 Tbs coconut oil

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (for rolling)

  • 1/4 c nuts or shredded coconut (for rolling)

Directions

  • Combine milk, vanilla extract, and honey in a small saucepan; bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Place chopped chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl, and pour hot milk mixture over it.
  • Stir gently and thoroughly until all the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Stir in coconut oil until melted and incorporated completely into the chocolate mixture.
  • Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, until firm (but not hard).
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a melon baller or a small cookie scooper, scoop out balls of the chocolate mixture and roll gently between your palms until a smooth and even ball is created.

    Truffles can be made into any size, depending on your preference.
  • Place cocoa powder on one plate, and nuts or coconut on another.
  • Take each truffle and roll half of them in the cocoa powder to coat; roll the other half in the nuts or coconut.

Notes

  • Truffles can be served immediately, or stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
