  • High Speed Blender
  • Small Sauce Pan
  • Whisk


  • 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


Preparing the Orange

  • Start by grating the entire orange. Set that aside while you make the puree. Add the peeled orange into a high speed blender, and blend until it's smooth. (About 60 seconds.)

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!


Helpful Tips

  • 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 flaky sea salt on top, but it's totally optional.
  • Let the dough chill for at least 1 hour or it will be hard to roll out. (Either way it's a little messy!)
  • Use a cookie scoop to create the perfect size balls.
  • 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.
  • Use parchment paper so the truffles don't stick!

How to store leftovers

Leftover truffles should be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Serve chilled!
