Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Truffles
Makes 12

  • 6oz dairy-free chocolate (like this one)
  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk.
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted
  • ½ – ¾ teaspoon pure peppermint extract
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  1. In a double boiler, heat coconut milk and coconut oil over low heat until melted. Add the chocolate, stirring frequently to ensure that it doesn’t burn.
  2. Once the chocolate is melted, remove it from the heat. Add the peppermint, vanilla, and salt. Mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated and the chocolate mixture is smooth.
  3. Refrigerate the mixture for 1-2 hours, or until firm.
  4. Using a 1” melon baller or tablespoon, scoop out the chocolate and roll between the palms of your hands to make balls and place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Pour the cocoa powder into a small bowl and roll the balls in the cocoa powder to coat.
  6. Store the finished truffles in the refrigerator. Allow them to come to room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving.
