I have always loved chocolate truffles and haven’t really had them since changing the way I ate. These are so so delicious and really taste and feel like a more traditional truffle! The combination of coconut oil and cacao butter means they have the most creamy texture and a really rich chocolatey taste. I will definitely be making them to give as little gifts over christmas!
- 50g cacao butter
- 50g coconut oil
- 8 tablespoons cacao powder
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 4 tablespoons almond butter
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
- Pinch salt
Chop the cacao butter into fairly small chunks and add to a bain marie along with the coconut oil over a low heat.
Once that has melted, add all other ingredients and mix until you have a smooth chocolate.
Place in the fridge for about 45 minutes until it has firmed up.
Once it has set, use a spoon to get a bit of the mixture and use your hands to roll it into balls. (This is quite messy)
Sprinkle the desiccated coconut onto the balls and return to the fridge for an hour or so until they are firm again.
Remove from the fridge 10-15 minutes before eating.
