By:
Makes: 10 large truffles
Ingredients
  • ½ cup roasted salted pistachios (pulse into small crumbs)
  • ¾ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ⅓ cup coconut butter, warmed (heat in 20 second intervals at 50% power until soft enough to scoop)
  • 1 T orange blossom water
  • 3 T maple syrup
  • pinch pink salt
  • 1 cup dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips (or, if not vegan, white chocolate chips)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • For Topping: sea salt, crushed pistachios, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, etc.
Instructions
  1. Using a food processor, pulse pistachios into small crumbs. Add shredded coconut, coconut butter, orange blossom water, maple syrup + salt and pulse until mixture comes together. (It should begin to form almost a dough and should hold together when pressed.) Form into 10 balls. Refrigerate at least an hour.
  2. Microwave chocolate + coconut oil in 15-30 second intervals until melted, stirring between intervals. When chocolate is melted, remove truffles from fridge.
  3. Drop one refrigerated truffle at a time into melted chocolate and, using two forks, toss to coat completely. Remove to parchment-lined baking sheet. Immediately adorn with toppings of your choice.
  4. Repeat with remaining truffles. Allow to set at room temperature or in the fridge until chocolate is firm. Enjoy!
