This is such a wonderful delight and so rich! But so easy! I make this every year and they are always a hit. The best thing about these truffles is you can make them your own by adding a flavoring or a topping. You can just roll them in cocoa powder if that is all you want but by adding a little coconut flakes to the cocoa powder you make a whole new truffle flavor. (I roll in coconut flakes and walnuts!)
You can also freeze the base mixture when you have them rolled in a ball and then dip in white or dark chocolate, sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy. Great for holidays. Choose ingredients that your family can have and have fun!
What you will need:
1 ¾ to 2 cups of Chocolate chips or 10.5 to 12 oz of your choice of chocolate.
1 cup Coconut Milk (full fat, in can – shake well)
1 to 2 drops of flavoring for chocolate optional
¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder for rolling.
Step 1 Put chocolate chips in a bowl (1qt or 2qt)
Step 2 In a saucepan heat the coconut milk to a simmer, do not boil!
Step 3 Pour heated coconut milk over chocolate in the bowl.
Step 4 Add flavoring now if you have some.
Step 5 Stir gently till all is melted.
Step 6 Let mixture cool, I put it in the refrigerator till firm. (It will be a soft firm like butter)
Step 7 Once cooled then you can form into balls and either roll in the cocoa powder or make it your own. Then put in a container and store in the refrigerator till you are ready to serve!
Makes about 16 small balls if you use a small ice cream scoop.
