Vegan Chocolate Coconut Truffles

February 10, 2014

Looking to impress that special someone this Valentine’s Day? Chef Morgan`s Coconut Chocolate Truffles might just fit the bill. These decadent little bites look impressive, but are surprisingly easy to prepare — not to mention delicious!

Ingredients:

  • ½ (398ml) can coconut milk – Tip: shake can before opening
  • 5 Vega Maca Chocolate Bars, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons coconut butter (coconut butter contains the meat of the coconut and cannot be substituted with coconut oil)
  • 2 Vega Maca Chocolate Bars, chopped
  • Toasted coconut flakes, to coat

Preparation

  1. Over a double boiler, heat coconut milk until hot. Add in chopped chocolate (5 Vega Maca Chocolate Bars) and coconut butter. Whisk constantly until chocolate is fully melted.
  2. Place chocolate mixture in a bowl or glass container and store overnight in the fridge to cool.
  3. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the chilled chocolate mixture at a time and roll in to balls (your hands will get quite messy). Refrigerate for another hour.
  4. Melt remaining 2 Vega Maca Chocolate pieces over a double boiler.
  5. Once chocolate is melted, fully coat truffles in the chocolate and place on a lined baking sheet. While chocolate is still melted, sprinkle with toasted coconut.
  6. Store in the refrigerator or freezer in a sealed container.
