Thick & Creamy Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Truffles
Considering Spring is in full swing, coconut is the perfect addition to nearly anything and everything, including truffles.
If you like coconut and chocolate, you’ll melt at the taste of these Chocolate Coconut Truffles.
These little truffles are coconut based with coconut oil and drumb role please.. sugar free maple syrup! These truffles will naturally give you the kick of coconut without the fake coconut extract flavor. The shredded coconut and coconut oil brings just the right amount of coconut flavor and chewy texture I was hoping for.
The next step is rolling (this is the messy part!), chilling, then dipping. I found the easiest tactic to be using two forks and dipping it into the melted chocolate. I promise these chocolate coconut truffles are worth the hassle and time.
