Chef Gabe Kennedy is coming in hot this summer with some recipes that will keep you ooo-ing and ahhh-ing. Time to get your hands sticky and make some chocolate truffles as you've never made before!
- 8 ounces dark chocolate* chopped fine - use above 70%
- 6 tbsp 'full-fat' coconut milk
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp cacao nibs
- Flakey salt
- 3 sachets of NightLight or 6 capsules of Immune Power for coating
- Place all the chopped chocolate in a metal mixing bowl.
- In a small sauce pot, add coconut milk until it is warm.
- Place metal bowl on top of the pot to begin melting the chocolate.
- Pour coconut milk over the chocolate and let it sit for a few min.
- Then slowly stir together until it is smooth and combined.
- Fold in the cacao nibs.
- Add powders to a separate plate or bowl.
- When the chocolate is cool enough to work with, use a tablespoon and roll the chocolate into a ball.
- Place the balls into the dust and roll around to coat and then place on a fresh plate. Do this till you run out of chocolate.
- Refrigerate the truffles for an hour or longer and then enjoy!
They are best when taken out of the fridge for about 10 min before serving.
Melt some more chocolate and drizzle it on top :) You can also add more toppings like pinches of dried fruit, flakey salt, etc.
