Ingredients: 125 grams vegan dark chocolate 95 grams coconut milk 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon espresso powder 2 teaspoons maple syrup pinch of sea salt cocoa powder, for coating
Method: Break the chocolate into pieces and place chocolate in a bowl. In a small saucepan, heat coconut milk on low heat until it comes to a full simmer. Do not let it boil. Then, take off the heat and pour hot coconut milk over broken chocolate. Let sit for a minute or two. After sitting, stir with a spatula until all the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth chocolate ganache.
Add vanilla, espresso powder, maple syrup, sea salt and liquor (if using), to the ganache. Stir well.
Chill your bowl of ganache in the refrigerator until the ganache has thickened, about 2-3 hours. Stir every 30 minutes or so to ensure it chills evenly.
Once firm, using a teaspoon, scoop out portions of ganache and roll into balls with clean, cool hands.
If your palms start to get warm and messy, wash your hands before continuing. Roll truffles in cocoa powder to coat.
