Dark Chocolate Coconut Truffles

I made these with my mother when she was visiting for the holidays. They were a big hit, perfect to snack on without being too sweet or filling. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them to my 3pm (last call) coffee.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Truffles

About 20 min

  • 2 cups (5 dl) desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons full coconut oil (in solid form)
  • 3-4 tablespoons agave syrup or other sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3-ounces (85 gram) dark chocolate, 65% cacao

Make it like this;

  1. Place desiccated coconut and coconut flour in a bowl.
  2. Melt coconut oil in a pot. Add sweetner, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the mix to the dry coconut and knead with your hands until you get a compact dough. Take about a teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball roughly the size of a walnut. Place coconut ball on a plate lined with baking paper or aluminium foil. Repeat until you use up all of the coconut dough. When done, place the truffles in the fridge for about 30 min.
  4. Break dark chocolate into small pieces and place in a steel bowl over a water bath to melt. Stir to ensure an even melt. You can choose to cover all of them in chocolate, or keep half like snowballs like I did.
  5. Remove coconut truffles from fridge, and dunk them one-by-one in dark chocolate. Place back into the fridge for half an hour to set.
  6. Store in an airtight container in fridge and serve chilled.
