Small Sauce Pan
1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips ½ Cup Orange Puree One medium sized orange blended. ¼ Cup Coconut Milk Or any dairy-free milk! 3 Tablespoons Coconut Flour Orange Zest From one orange. 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract ¼ Teaspoon Salt Top Coating ½ Cup Dark Chocolate Chips 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
Making the Truffles Next add the chocolate chips, orange puree, orange zest, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and salt into a sauce pan. Stir on low heat with a whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl. Fold together the chocolate mixture with the coconut flour. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. Once the truffle mixture has cooled, roll into 14 small balls. Place on a plate, and return to the refrigerator while you prepare the chocolate. Putting it all together In a small bowl melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 20 second intervals. (Stirring in between.) It should be smooth and creamy! Dip each ball with two forks into the chocolate, and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat until all of the balls are evenly coated. Place the balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to set. Enjoy!
Heat the chocolate at a
very low temperature so it doesn't burn. Stir continuously. Use a
whisk to stir the chocolate! It works much better than a spoon.
Save some orange zest to sprinkle on top! I love adding
on top, but it's totally optional. flaky sea salt Let the dough
chill for at least 1 hour or it will be hard to roll out. (Either way it's a little messy!)

For dipping, I always use two forks so the excess chocolate can drip off. If you don't let it drip each truffle with have a flat ring of chocolate at the bottom.
