Coconut Chocolate Truffles

By  | 

Coconut Chocolate Truffles, now these are delicious but even I, a chocoholic can’t manage more than two at a time because I have so say they are quite rich.

So easy to make, that you could ask the kids to be chief ball rollers!

Now you can use any kind of coconut oil in this recipe, but my coconut oil of choice is always going to be Lucy Bee coconut oil.

I’ve used other brands in the past but for me Lucy Bee has a lovely flavour and you can really taste the difference.

I also use agave nectar in my recipe, you can use date syrup but I find that makes the truffles taste quite sickly.

This recipe makes sixteen small balls, but if you want to go large they you’ll get less in quantity.
