Happy Monday!!

I have had a few very busy weeks (and more to come) but I still wanted to post a new recipe. I thought I’d come up with something uber simple and quick, something a bit different from my usual creations: these easiest and melt-in-your-mouth 2-ingredient chocolate truffles. The most versatile and 100% customizable snack!! I generally wouldn’t make something using an ingredient such as chocolate as a main ingredient, I’d create everything from scratch, but I thought why not, I’ll do something really really simple and straightforward for once! I love these truffles as they are but it would be fun to add nuts and spices. Let me know if you try any variations!!

P.s. due to lack of time I wasn’t able to make step-by-step photos for this but truth is you won’t need them 😀

about 10-12 truffles
prep time: 10 mins, cook time: 0 mins, total: 10 mins + 2 hrs in the fridge


150 gr chopped dark chocolate (I used 80%)
1/3 cup / 85 ml coconut milk from a can (shake well)
optional: pinch salt, cocoa powder



  1. Finely chop chocolate and let melt over a double boiler.
  2. Heat up coconut milk over a low flame (don’t let it boil).
  3. When chocolate is melted pour very hot coconut milk over it (optional: and a pinch of salt), then, without stirring, cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Gently sir, then transfer bowl to the fridge, uncovered, and let firm up for 2 hours.
  4. Using a metal spoon, scoop out a little bit of chocolate mixture and form into a ball between your palms. Place on a container or tray lined with parchment paper. If desired, roll in cocoa powder or other powder (cinnamon, matcha, etc). Continue with the rest.
  5. Eat as is or let sit in the fridge for another hour or two to let firm up even further. Store in the fridge in a sealed container.
