dark chocolate orange and hazelnut truffles
These are a recent creation - they are vegan, only have 4 ingredients and are super easy to make!
INGREDIENTS (makes 12 truffles)
2 bars dark chocolate at least 70% (I used Green and Blacks 70%)
12 tablespoons of tinned coconut milk (I used Biona)
5 drops orange essence (I used these)
1 table spoon finely chopped raw hazelnuts
Finely chop the nuts
Melt the dark chocolate slowly in a perspex bowl over a boiling pan of water
Gently heat the coconut milk in a pan and add to the melting chocolate and gently fold through until evenly mixed
When fully melted add the orange extract drops and fold through the nuts
When set, pour out some raw cacao powder on a plate and then take from fridge and use a small scoop (tablespoon size scoop) or a teaspoon to spoon the mixture into truffle shaped balls, moulding the with your hands if you need
Dust in the cacoa powder and then leave to set in the fridge over night
Enjoy the gooey orangey truffley goodness!
