Cook Republic's white chocolate truffles are delicious! And with a white choc substitution option, vegans will fall in love with these creamy bite-sized snacks.
180 g vegan white chocolate bits (or use regular white chocolate bits)
½ cup coconut cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup desiccated coconut
- In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the coconut cream on medium heat until starting to simmer and heated through. Add chocolate and reduce heat to low. Stir the mixture constantly until chocolate is melted and blended with the coconut cream. Add the vanilla extract and remove from heat. Cool for 5 minutes.
- Add the coconut and mix well. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes to an hour, until the chocolate mixture firms up enough to roll into balls.
- Take 1 tablespoon full of the mixture and gently roll it into a ball with your palms. Roll the balls in desiccated coconut, coconut flakes or crushed nuts for a dry and delicious outer crumb. Refrigerate until time to serve.
