Back to yet another component of the delicious Thanksgiving cake I made. I recently started my adventures into truffle making. It all began with a coffee toffee truffle (see the picture below).
For the Thanksgiving cake, however, I wanted something simple, not to over-power the other elements. These were SO easy to make.
The plus of truffles, besides being gorgeous, is that you can make a variety of flavors. Next I really want to make a caramel truffle. All chocolate is a little too rich for my personal taste, but adding other flavors, that would be my style. Maybe a lemon white chocolate. Or chocolate cherry. Or chocolate raspberry. Or a coconut. Or an Almond Joy inspired truffle. Or an orange chocolate, just zest some orange into the ganache. So many options.
Super Simple Truffles
- 8 oz. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp maple
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp organic powdered sugar
Let’s Make It Happen:
Bring the coconut milk and maple to a boil. Pour over the chocolate. Whisk. Add in the coconut oil. Whisk really well. Place in a glass bowl. Freeze. Scoop and shape into balls. Mix the cocoa powder and powdered sugar with a fork in a bowl. Roll the balls in there. Place back in the freezer (or fridge) until you are ready to decorate.
It is seriously that easy!
