Recipe

If you’re making these sweets for your kids, remember that chocolate (raw chocolate in particular) can be somewhat stimulating. To avoid turning bedtime into party time, it’s safer to make these a daytime snack.

For truffles with a completely smooth texture, a high-speed blender is preferable. Any other blender most likely won’t puree the shredded coconut, so the truffles might be a little grainy (though still completely yummy)

Yield: Makes about 40 truffles

Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut butter/oil, warmed to soften
  • ¾ cup agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup dried shredded coconut
  • 2¼ cups cocoa powder, preferably raw, sifted

Equipment

  • High-speed blender

Directions

In a high-speed blender, blend the warmed coconut butter/oil, agave nectar, vanilla, and salt. Add the shredded coconut, ½ cup at a time, and blend until smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in 2 cups of the cocoa powder until thoroughly combined. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or more to set slightly.

Place the remaining ¼ cup cocoa powder onto a small plate. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the chocolate mixture and roll them into balls. Roll these in the cocoa powder. Store the finished truffles in the refrigerator.
