5-Ingredient Chocolate Truffle Recipe

  • ¼ cup coconut milk*

  • 1 ⅔ cups dark chocolate chips, divided

  • ⅓ cup cacao powder

  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt


Line a baking tray with a baking mat or parchment paper. Add the coconut milk to a medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until bubbles appear. Add 1 cup chocolate chips and sea salt and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla extract.

Pour the melted chocolate into a small square pan and place in the refrigerator to set for 40-50 minutes. Once firm yet pliable, use a small melon baller or spoon to scoop and shape chocolate into round balls. Place on lined baking tray. Place in freezer for 15 minutes, until firm.

Melt remaining chocolate in a double boiler until smooth. Using tongs or two forks, dunk each chocolate ball into the melted chocolate and return to tray. Set in fridge for 15 more minutes.

Add the cacao to a small bowl. Roll each ball in the cacao and return to tray. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy.

Note: Native Forest Coconut Milk is in a BPA-free can and is certified organic and non-GMO. You can also opt for homemade coconut milk, recipe here.
