Instructions

  1. In a microwave-safe dish, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat in the microwave in 1-minute intervals, stirring in between to prevent burning. When just melted, stir in the cream to make a shiny ganache. Allow to cool until the mixture is firm enough to scoop.
  2. Using a melon baller, scoop into about 2 dozen truffles. Dip the melon baller into very hot water in between scoops.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together cocoa powder, salt and powdered sugar. Roll each truffle until very round and coat quickly with the cocoa powder mixture.

Tips & Notes

These have a longer shelf life than cookies and cakes. Unlike flour-based desserts, these break down more slowly, retaining freshness for about two weeks when refrigerated. They make an impressive gift.
