These pretty, delicious Raspberry Coconut Truffles are the perfect treat for a loved one and a lot easier to make than they look. Gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free. 
Prep Time20 mins
Total Time40 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 12 Truffles

Ingredients

  • 120 ml canned coconut milk (½ cup)
  • 120 g desiccated coconut ( cups)
  • 2 tbsp rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 12 frozen raspberries
  • 100 g dark chocolate -melted or raw chocolate (recipe link below)

Instructions

  • Combine the coconut milk, coconut, sweetener and coconut oil by hand or in a food processor until well combined. Thermomix 10 seconds, reverse speed 3. The mixture should be moist but hold together when pressed.
  • Press the coconut mixture firmly around the frozen raspberry and place on a  tray or plate lined with baking paper.
  • Pop in the freezer for 15 minutes or more.
  • Whilst they are freezing, make some raw chocolate (recipe link below) or you could melt regular dark chocolate (about 200grams) by breaking it up and placing it in a bowl sitting on top of a pan of boiling water and mixing until it's melted.
  • Remove the coconut covered raspberries from the freezer and coat in the chocolate (use two forks to move the truffles around in the chocolate to coat them).
  • Place back on the tray and pop back in the freezer for 5 minutes until set.
  • Dunk again for a second coating of chocolate. If using raw chocolate, mix it well again in case it has begun to separate and dunk them again so they should be well coated.

Store

  • Set and store in the freezer until you are ready to gobble them up.
  • As with any raw chocolate treat, these will melt and fall apart at room temperature. For a more stable treat, coat them in melted dark chocolate.
