Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Warm coconut cream in a saucepan just enough to stir in brown sugar and coconut. Chill for 20 minutes in the fridge.
  2. Form into balls and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Freeze for an hour or two.
  3. Melt chocolate (we used the microwave, but you can do it on the stove) and get chocolate as close to 90 degrees F as you can.
  4. Take the frozen balls of coconut with two forks and dip them into the melted chocolate, covering the coconut. Place back on the parchment paper and put back in the freezer. Once they are nice and hard, you can store them in the fridge. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you don’t have coconut cream, you can use full fat coconut milk. Simmer one can of milk with 1/4 cup brown sugar on medium-low heat for 30-45 minutes until nice and thick. Mix with 1 1/2 cup coconut and chill, following the same directions as above. This makes a double batch, so you’ll probably need more than two cups of chocolate, but it depends how thick of a coating you have on each.

Store finished coconut truffles in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week.
