These truffles are dairy-free, insanely decadent and can be customized for your favorite flavor preference, from matcha to rose to lavender to salted almond to cinnamon and cayenne. If the flower essences don’t make your cupid’s target fall in love with you, their flavor certainly will.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 300g dark chocolate (70% or higher)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 10 drops flower essence of choice

Flavour Choices

  • 1 teaspoon powdered matcha
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 teaspoon crushed lavender
  • 1/4 cup crushed salted almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne & 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

  1. In a small pan over medium heat, heat coconut milk until just simmering.
  2. In a heat proof bowl, break chocolate into pieces.
  3. Pour warm milk over the chocolate, whisking until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla and flower essences and whisk again.
  4. If using flavors, add the first ingredient listed (not garnish).
  5. Cover and refrigerate for 2 – 3 hours, or until set.
  6. Using a cold spoon and clean, dry hands, scoop out and roll into balls. Roll into garnish until well-coated, if desired.
  7. Place on parchment paper and refrigerate again to set. Store covered in the fridge, removing 10 – 15 minutes before eating for best texture.
