Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • 1 1/3 cups (8 oz) dairy-free dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 1/2 cups dairy-free dark chocolate chips
  • 4 candy canes (crushed/chopped)

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, heat coconut milk just until it's about to boil. Remove from heat and stir in the peppermint extract.
  • Pour coconut milk over the chocolate in a medium bowl.
  • Let sit for 20-30 seconds.
  • Using a whisk, whisk from the center to the outside (this helps to not splash the coconut milk everywhere), until the mixture becomes a creamy chocolate.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Take a tablespoon or cookie scoop and scoop out some of the hardened ganache.
  • Quickly roll the chocolate into a ball (the heat from your hands will start to melt the chocolate so move fast.
  • Set on parchment paper. And refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
  • Melt 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until completely melted.
  • Dip the truffles in the melted chocolate, tapping off any excess chocolate. Place on the parchment paper and immediately top with crushed candy canes.
  • Let set in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
