Valentine's Day is coming... It's just around the corner.... It's on Monday...! Don't be terrified by the fact that you'll be having some serious chocolate cravings! Make these Mint Chocolate Truffles instead and indulge in the holiday with a healthy box of chocolates.
5 oz. dark chocolate, 70% cocoa or higher, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin coconut oil, melted
½ cup canned lite coconut milk
½ tsp. pure mint extract (or pure vanilla extract)
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa
Combine chocolate, oil, and extract in a small bowl; mix well. Set aside.
Bring coconut milk to a gentle boil in small saucepan over medium heat.
Add coconut milk to chocolate mixture; whisk gently to blend.
Place chocolate mixture, covered, in refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop out 1 Tbsp. of chocolate mixture. Roll into a ball. Roll in cocoa powder until evenly coated. Repeat to make twelve truffles.
Store in refrigerator for up to one week or in freezer for three months.
