Prep Time
35 min
Cook Time
15 min
Total Time
50 min

Dark Chocolate
1. 1/2 cup Canned Coconut Milk, stirred*
2. 3 cups Semi-Sweet, Dark, or Vegan Chocolate Chips, divided
3. 1 cup whole Hazelnuts, divided

Milk Chocolate
1. 1/3 cup Canned Coconut Milk, stirred*
2. 3 cups Milk Chocolate Chips, divided
3. 1 cup whole Hazelnuts, divided

Instructions
1. In small saucepan, heat coconut milk over medium-low heat until it just begins to boil.

2. Reduce heat to low and stir in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. Stir until smooth and melted.

3. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Refrigerate until firm and set. This could take several hours or overnight.

4. Place 3/4 cup of whole hazelnuts in a plastic bag. Place a towel under the bag and use a hammer to lightly smash the nuts until small pieces. Don’t turn them into dust though.

5. In a dry, nonstick pan on medium high heat, toast the remaining 1/4 cup of whole hazelnuts for 5 minutes until slightly charred. Toss them occasionally.

6. Take out the whole hazelnuts and do the same for the crushed pieces. They will only take about 3 minutes. Watch so that they don’t burn. Put in separate bowls to cool completely.

7. Once the truffle mixture is completely chilled and firm, scoop up a nice heaping teaspoon of firmed truffle mixture onto a spoon. Squish a full hazelnut right into the middle of the mixture. Cover the hazelnut with the truffle mixture that is already on the spoon.

8. Scoot the truffle off the spoon and right onto the crushed hazelnuts. Completely cover the truffle with crushed hazelnuts. This will make it very easy to handle. Place the confection onto a parchment lined sheet pan and into the freezer for a few minutes to firm back up.

9. In the meantime, prepare a double boiler. Over medium-high heat, bring the water to a simmer and add your chocolate to the bowl. Stir chocolate over heat until melted and smooth.

10. Using two forks, dip the candy into the melted chocolate. Tap the forks on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

11. Place dipped chocolates back on the sheet pan and chill until firm.

Notes
1. *Canned coconut milk can be found in the health food aisle or in the international/Asian 
ingredients.
