I just tasted an AMAZING, decadent, rich, creamy chocolate truffle that I made for Father’s Day. Bonus=rich in quality fats, antioxidants, fiber, very low in sugar, AND dairy & gluten-free! What’s not to love?!
I’d been wanting to give this recipe from one of my favorite recipe blogs Nom Nom Paleo a try. So glad I did! They are truly awesome. 🙂
These truffles are dairy & gluten free.
- 10 ounces of dark chocolate, I used almost 3 bars of my favorite dark chocolate, Divine 85%
- 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
- 3 T coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut and/or 1/2 cup raw cacoa powder (for rolling the truffles in)
I toasted the coconut in a pan on the stove on low heat and added a dash of sea salt to it. The sweet salty combo is, after all, fabulous.
