Chocolate Coconut Honey Truffles

chocolate coconut honey truffles

Here’s a last minute Valentine’s treat that is fast and simple. Unsweetened coconut is drenched in honey and then covered in dark chocolate. They’re pretty and bite-sized, perfect packaged as a gift or accompanying ice cream as dessert.

These were devised for a pregnant coconut-loving friend. I don’t know if there’s any correlation, but I gave them to her a day past her due date with no signs of labor, and her water broke the next evening. You never know, the power of a good treat can be great!

Chocolate Coconut Honey Truffles
makes 16 one inch truffles

1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

Put coconut in a large bowl. Gently heat the coconut oil until liquid. Add to the coconut and immediately stir to incorporate. Stir in honey.

Roll coconut into 1 inch balls, and chill for about 30 minutes.

When ready to coat the truffles, melt the chocolate over a double-boiler, or in a microwave-proof bowl in 30 second increments, stirring each time until chocolate is smooth.

Using a fork, drop the coconut balls into the chocolate and cover. Gently lift out and place on a rack or piece of parchment. Let chocolate harden and enjoy.

    A double-boiler is a two piece saucepan set. The bottom is filled with water and placed directly on the burner, while the top fits into the first pan and holds whatever you’re trying to melt. Since it doesn’t come in direct contact with a flame, it gently melts things and is great for chocolate.

    However, if you don’t have one, just melt it slowly in the microwave (in 30 second bursts, stirring in between), or use a very heavy saucepan and the very lowest setting on your smallest stove burner.
