Easy Dark Chocolate TrufflesIMG_0059

3 Tbsp butter
1 C. Chocolate Chips
4 Tbsp Half and half
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c. toasted coconut flakes

  1. Put all ingredients except the coconut in a sauce pan and warm slowly. Keep heat on medium low. You don’t want to burn your chocolate.
  2. Stir constantly for 10 minutes, the chips will slowly melt.
  3. Once it’s all melted, pour thickly into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Cut into 15 equal-sized pieces.
  6. Sprinkle the coconut on a plate.
  7. Wash your hands and roll each square into a ball. The truffle will melt a little bit in your hand. This is good.
  8. Roll each melty truffle in the coconut to coat it.
  9. Put truffles back into the fridge/freezer to solidify. They will keep for a long time if stored in the freezer, but thaw in the fridge before eating them or you will break your teeth.

Lick the spoon, the pan and your fingers like a crazy chocolate-craving person.
