Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate , about 5.5 oz chopped or in chips
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate , about 5.5 oz chopped or in chips
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Any favorite coating

Instructions

  • Mix heavy cream and coconut oil in a small pot over med-low heat and bring to a strong simmer. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and chocolates.
  • Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl and refrigerate for for at least two hours, or until mixture is firm to the touch.
  • Prepare desired coatings and place in separate bowls. Once the chocolate is hardened, use a melon baller or a small cookie scoop to create balls of chocolate (bite-size is best). Roll each ball in your hands to round and smooth, but don't worry about trying to make them perfectly round.
  • Roll each truffle ball in desired coating, pressing lightly to help adhere, and arrange in an air tight container to store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Allow to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving for a silkier texture.

Notes

Unsalted butter can be used as a substitute for the coconut oil for more traditional truffles. To make dairy-free truffles, substitute coconut cream for the heavy whipping cream and use chocolate that does not contain milk products.
