Dark Chocolate Cranberry Truffles

Written by Andrew Frezza | February 28, 2013

We love dark chocolate!  And we love coconut butter!  Needless to say, this will be the first of many truffles that we will be posting!  We gave these to a few random friends that have yet to try our coconut butters and they were blown away!  Hopefully you enjoy them just as much!

Ingredients:

 

1 Cup of Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter

 

¼ Cup of Dried Cranberries

 

¼ Cup of Coconut Flour

 

½ Cup of Dark Chocolate Chips

 

1 Tbsp Butter

 

Directions:

 

Place a sheet of Parchment Paper on a tray that can easily fit flat in the freezer.

 

Mix Coconut Butter, Coconut Flour and cranberries and create little balls (about 1 inch diameter) and place on top of the parchment paper.

 

Freeze for 15 minutes.

 

While the coconut butter balls are in the freezer, melt the chocolate chips and butter in a small saucepan and stir occasionally.

 

Take the coconut butter balls out of the freezer and place them on the counter near the melted chocolate.

 

Carefully dip each coconut butter ball into the melted chocolate until it’s completely covered and place back on the parchment paper.

Note: if the chocolate is too thin and not covering the ball completely, add more chocolate. If it’s too thick and not liquid enough, add a little butter.

 

 

Once all of the balls are covered in chocolate, place in the freezer until time to serve!
