Healthy Paleo and Vegan Peppermint Truffles with a rich, creamy peppermint filling and a dark chocolate coating.





  • 1 cup dark chocolate
  • 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil (or cacao butter)***

Topping (optional)


  1. Make the filling: melt coconut cream and cacao butter in a small sauce pan, over low heat.  Stir frequently until fully melted.
  2. Remove from heat and whisk in remaining filling ingredients.  Refrigerate filling overnight.
  3. Remove the filling from the fridge and use a small cookie scoop to scoop the filling.  (Each filling is about 1 tablespoon in size, making 27 truffles.)
  4. Freeze filling for 30 minutes to harden.
  5. Make the coating: melt dark chocolate and coconut oil over low heat, stirring frequently. 
  6. Dip the frozen fillings (one at a time) into the melted chocolate.  Place back on the lined baking sheet to set.
  7. Topping (optional): drizzle remaining dark chocolate over truffles and add sprinkles****


*just the cream from a can of full fat coconut milk (will need 1-2 cans depending on the brand)

**Use a sugar free sweetener for keto

***this makes the chocolate coating runnier and easier for dipping

****Note: the chocolate hardens quickly, so add sprinkles before chocolate has a chance to set.
