DIY Coconut Butter and Incredible Coconut Butter Truffles

DIY Coconut Butter and Incredible Coconut Butter Truffles

I think I can say that these dreamy little bites are my new favourite treat. Over Easter I was making a Raw Avocado “Cheesecake” and the recipe not only called for coconut oil, but also coconut butter…after a trip to my local health foods shop, I had a $14 small jar of sweet, rich, melt in your mouth, delicious coconut butter. The process took about 12 minutes in my kitchen aid food processor. The original recipe for these orange truffles comes from My Whole Food Life and I encourage you to follow the link and view the original recipe and instructions there as I’ve switched it up a bit by using only 1 tbsp maple syrup, the zest of an orange in lieu of extract, 1 1 tsp vanilla and a splash of spiced rum. The creamy orange centres have been dipped in a mixture of 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted with 1 tbsp. Using my smallest cookie scoop, I was able to yield 20 chocolates
