Ingredients

  • 3/4cup


    Coconut Milk

  • 10oz


    Vegan Bittersweet Chocolatefinely chopped

  • 1/2tsp


    Coconut Extract

  • 1/4cup


    Cocoa Powder
Instructions
  1. Finely chop bittersweet chocolate in medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Place coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat to just under boiling. Bubbles should appear at the edges only.
  3. Pour hot coconut milk over chopped chocolate and allow it to sit for one minute to soften. Gently whisk until the chocolate is melted and becomes a smooth, shiny ganache.
  4. Whisk in 1/4 tsp. coconut extract. Add up to 1/4 tsp. more if you prefer a stronger coconut flavor.
  5. Press a layer of plastic wrap directly on top of the ganache and refrigerate until firm enough to scoop and roll, about 1 hour.
  6. Pour cocoa powder in a shallow bowl. Dust hands lightly with cocoa powder. Use a spoon to scoop small pieces from the ganache and roll between your hands to get them round. Finish them by rolling in a thin coating of cocoa powder.
  7. Place on a tray in the refrigerator to set for about 15 minutes. Truffles are best served at room temperature.
