- Dash Celtic Sea Salt
- 1/8 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 cups Cocoa, Dry Powder, Unsweetened
- ½ cup Coconut Oil
- 2 cups Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 1/8 cup Swerve Confectioners Style Sweetener
In a food processor, add 1 cup of coconut flakes and blend until it resembles smaller flakes (almost like snow). Pour the coconut crumbs onto a plate or bowl. Set aside.
In the same food processor bowl, add the melted coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and sea salt. Pulse until well combined. Add the second cup of the coconut flakes and pulse to combine. The coconut flakes will break up into smaller pieces.
In a mixing bowl, sift the cocoa powder. Add half the sifted cocoa to the coconut mixture. Pulse to combine. Add the remaining half. Pulse again quickly to fully incorporate.
Pour the mixture into a bowl (you can use the same mixing bowl used to sift the cocoa). Set in the refrigerator.
Using a small spoon or teaspoon, scoop the truffle mixture, press to combine slightly, and roll into a ball in your hand. Roll into coconut crumbs. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
