Optional Ingredients (these amounts make 4 of each type of truffle)

Deep Dark Truffles

  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder

Pink Sea Salt Truffles

  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarse pink Himalayan sea salt

Spicy Chipotle Truffles

Coconut Chocolate Truffles

  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 2 teaspoons shredded coconut


  1. Chop the cacao butter into fine pieces to measure.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Turn it off.
  3. Place the cacao butter in a heat proof bowl, and place it directly over the boiling water, but not touching it.
  4. Stir for 1-2 minutes until it begins to melt. At this point, make sure that no water or liquid gets in to the chocolate as it can cause the texture to get mealy!
  5. Whisk in the coconut oil and honey until melted
  6. Add the cacao powder and vanilla. Mix until evenly blended.
  7. Remove the bowl from the heat.
  8. Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes or until the chocolate is firm enough to handle. Don’t let it get too firm.
  9. Set up individual plates of whatever optional toppings you are using
  10. After it has chilled, scoop out balls about the size of a tablespoon from the bowl.
  11. Roll them between your palms to form smooth balls.
  12. Roll them onto the toppings to coat lightly
  13. Place them on a parchment lined tray then place the tray back in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
  14. You can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in a cool dry place for 1 week.
