Christmas is in the air! Hymns and carols serenade us as I pack foods for family. My giddy girls complete the joyous process of their last few weeks – carefully finding and wrapping gifts for friends and family members. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends. I’m excited for 2013 (we have some exciting things planned here at Deliciously Organic!) and the opportunity to continue walking along this journey of healthy eating and living.
Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
Chocolate Truffles (Grain Free, Diary Free, Paleo, Primal, Gluten Free)
You can add different extracts to the truffles to change the flavor. One of my favorites is almond extract. Makes about twenty-four 1 1/2” truffles.
For the truffles:
1/2 cup coconut milk
4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
1 pound semisweet chocolate – at least 60% cocoa (I used Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup cocoa powder, chopped almonds, shredded coconut, etc.
Place coconut milk, butter (or coconut oil) and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally and cook until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla until smooth. Pour chocolate mixture into a loaf pan. Chill until firm, about 4-6 hours. Scoop chocolate with a spoon and roll into balls using your hands. Roll in cocoa powder. Chill until ready to serve.
