I accidentally teased you guys with these last week…whoops! Sorry about that.

I had planned on sharing them and then something came up and I forgot to reschedule the post. So if you saw them and then they were gone, please accept my apologies. The good news is that the recipe is now here to stay! ;)

Some of you might be wondering why you would bother making your own truffles when you can easily buy them at the store. I hear ya, I’m all for taking shortcuts where I can. But when you try to avoid dairy it can be hard to find good truffles sometimes. Specifically dark chocolate peanut butter truffles, aka the best combination EVER…in my humble opinion.

Besides, these are honestly so simple to make that it’s worth it. All you have to do is warm up some coconut milk and pour it in a bowl with chocolate and peanut butter. Then once that has set in the fridge, you scoop out the truffles and dip them in more melted chocolate. That’s pretty much all there is to them!

Ingredients:

For the Filling

  • 1 cup dark chocolate* (either chopped chocolate or chocolate chips)
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter 
  • 2/3 cup full fat coconut milk

For the Coating

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate* (chopped or chocolate chips)
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • melted peanut butter and sea salt for topping

Directions:

In a large bowl, add 1 cup dark chocolate and 1/3 cup peanut butter then set aside.

In a small saucepan, add coconut milk and warm over medium-high heat. Once it starts to bubble, remove from the heat and pour it over the chocolate. Stir together until chocolate has melted and peanut butter is evenly incorporated. Transfer bowl to the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until chocolate ganache has solidified.

Prepare the coating by melting 1/2 cup dark chocolate and 1 tablespoon coconut oil together in the microwave for 3o seconds at a time, stirring until melted and smooth. Remove ganache from the refrigerator and scoop out about a tablespoon at a time and roll into balls. Dip each ball into the melted chocolate then use a fork to gently flip it until evenly coated on all sides. Transfer to a lined baking sheet or a large platter.

Drizzle with melted and slightly cooled peanut butter (I just melt mine in a small bowl for 15 to 30 seconds in the microwave) and sprinkle with sea salt. Store truffles in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

*I like Enjoy Life dairy-free dark chocolate chips but they are not refined sugar-free. Look for dark chocolate bars that are vegan and made without refined sugar to keep the recipe refined sugar-free.
