Dairy-free Chocolate Truffles (paleo, vegan, gluten-free)

I love giving and receiving chocolate as a gift, but usually these days, I can’t enjoy most of those pretty truffles out there! So I took matters into my own hands and guess what, it’s super easy to make your own dairy-free chocolate truffles and customize them to your own needs right at home.

I love playing with the different toppings as well, I’m using 3 types here… 

  • cacao powder
  • freeze-dried raspberry (ground up in the food processor)
  • shredded coconut

Just 2-ingredients to delicious, customized dairy-free chocolate truffles! Use your favorite chocolate (I recommend 70% or higher) and full-fat coconut cream for the dreamiest truffles. Get creative with the toppings. I’m using: cacao powder, freeze-dried raspberries, and shredded coconut on mine!

Ingredients
  • 9 oz. chocolate or chocolate chips, chopped (I like Hu Kitchen and Enjoy Life brands, use whatever your favorite is!)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
Optional Toppings
  • freeze-dried raspberries
  • shredded coconut
  • cacao powder
  • chopped nuts
Instructions
  1. Chop chocolate or chocolate chips as finely as you can (this will help it melt quicker), add to a large heat-safe mixing bowl (not plastic, glass, ceramic, or metal would be best).

  2. Over medium heat, bring coconut milk to a simmer.

  3. Pour heated coconut milk over the chocolate, and with a spatula or wooden spoon, mix the chocolate until everything has melted. If there are some stubborn pieces that won’t melt down, you can place the heat-safe bowl over a pot of boiling water to create a double-boiler and mix there so it will melt.

  4. Smooth the mixture out and place in the fridge, uncovered, for 2-3 hours until it sets.

  5. Prep your toppings in dipping bowls. For the freeze-dried raspberries, simply add to a food processor and pulse until you have dust!

  6. Bring the chocolate mixture to room temperature or so, at least so you can spoon it without too much difficulty.

  7. Using a tablespoon or small cookie scooper, scoop out evenly sized balls and roll them to even out the shape with your hands. The mixture shouldn’t leave much of a stain on your hands; if it does… it’s too soft.

  8. Roll your chocolate balls into the toppings and place on a parchment-lined tray to set in the fridge for 30 mins or so before serving. Store your truffles in an air-tight container in the fridge!
