How to Make Grain Free, Dairy Free, Paleo, Primal and Gluten Free Chocolate Truffles
You can add different extracts to the truffles to change the flavor. One of my favorites is almond extract. Makes about twenty-four 1 1/2” truffles.
For the truffles:
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
- 1 pound semisweet chocolate – at least 60% cocoa (Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips are recommended)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder, chopped almonds, shredded coconut, etc.
Place coconut milk, butter (or coconut oil) and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally and cook until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla until smooth. Pour chocolate mixture into a loaf pan. Chill until firm, about 4-6 hours. Scoop chocolate with a spoon and roll into balls using your hands. Roll in cocoa powder. Chill until ready to serve.
