  • 2/3 cup Raw pecans, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp Cacao paste or 100% dark, unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Coconut butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp Raw Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch Fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 2 tbsp Semisweet mini chocolate chips - Dairy/Soy-Free Brand


  • Melt the cacao paste slowly in a bowl over simmering water (double boiler).
  • Mix in the chopped pecans, 4 tablespoons of melted coconut butter (reserve the remaining ¼ cup for dipping), honey, vanilla extract and salt, until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoonful of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your hands, shape each truffle into 1-inch balls. The batter will be slightly crumbly, so shape each truffle gently and set it on the pan.
  • Insert a lollipop stick into the center of each truffle and freeze for 20 minutes.
  • Dip chilled truffles, one at the time, in melted coconut butter, then roll in shredded coconut. Set truffles back on the parchment paper.
  • Press three chocolate chips into each truffle to create a cute face.
  • Keep refrigerated as the coconut butter melts at temperatures above 72°F.
