I’m not vegan but I do like to cook with coconut cream and I had a bunch left over. I kept wondering if you could make ganache with coconut cream, just like you do with regular cream.
In the end my curiosity got the better of me and I tried it, super simply just by sticking some cream and some chocolate in the microwave until the chocolate melted. Turns out coconut cream ganache works out just as well as the usual kind, with a coconutty flavor that was just begging to be exploited.
So, these coconut chocolate truffles were born! There are only 4 ingredients and 3 of them are coconut in various different forms.
- 1/2 can coconut cream (take the thick stuff off the top)
- 3 oz dark chocolate
- 1/2 tbsp coconut flour
- 2 cups shredded coconut
These are ridiculously easy to make! Melt the chocolate with the cream (in the microwave or saucepan on low) and mix it up well with the coconut flour. Leave it to cool for an hour or so and then roll the mixture into balls and coat them well with the shredded coconut.
