If you’ve been wanting to make your own candy for a while, truffles are the place to start. The coconut milk and oil in the recipe lighten up the chocolate and make it extra creamy once you roll it into balls. (Partnership with Panasonic)

Author's Notes

If you don’t have a microwave, simply heat your milk in a small saucepan. If there are still lumps, refill the saucepan with an inch or two of water and bring to a boil. Pop the bowl on top (it shouldn’t be touching the water)! Stir until the chocolate is smooth then remove from bowl.

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Heat the Coconut Milk (1/2 cup) , Coconut Oil (1 Tbsp) , Maple Syrup (1 Tbsp) (if using), and Matcha Powder (1 Tbsp) in the Panasonic Microwave Oven for 30 seconds, or until the coconut milk bubbles.
Step 2
Stir in the 70% Dark Chocolate (1 2/3 cups) , and place a bowl or lid over the top of the bowl to lock in the heat. Let rest for 5 minutes, then mix until smooth.
Step 3
Place the bowl in the fridge until the chocolate is firm, about 3 to 4 hours.
Step 4
Using a melon baller or teaspoon, portion the chocolate and roll in your hands to form smooth, round balls. The colder the chocolate is, the easier it will be to roll. Pop the bowl back in the fridge every 5 minutes if you need to.
Step 5
Arrange the Black Sesame Seeds (to taste) and Toasted Coconut Flakes (to taste) on separate plates and roll your balls in them, pressing to adhere.
Step 6
For the Matcha Powder (to taste) , you can also just use a sift --looks prettier this way.
Step 7
Return to the fridge to firm up further, about 20 minutes. Or store them for later—they last up to one week! Cooking results may vary depending on microwave oven used.
