  • 1 3/4 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes finely shredded, unsweetened



  • Place cocoa powder and coconut flakes into separate, small bowls.


  • Add chocolate chips to a glass mixing bowl.
  • In a small saucepan, heat coconut cream until it just simmers. Pour over chocolate chips and stir until chips are completely melted.
  • Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop, drop the mixture into either cocoa powder or coconut and gently use your hands to form a ball. Do not over-handle as chocolate will begin to melt again.
  • Place truffles on a parchment-lined plate and return to refrigerator until ready to serve.


Coconut cream is different from coconut milk - it has a higher fat content necessary to make the truffles solid.
Dark chocolate is typically dairy-free but please check the ingredient label to be certain [look for 70%+ cocoa].
A variety of coatings work well here - our other favorites: peanut butter powder and finely crushed nuts.
