3tbspCacao paste or 100% dark, unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/2cupCoconut butter, melted
2tbspRaw Honeyor Maple Syrup
1pinchFine sea salt
1/2 cupUnsweetened Shredded Coconut
2tbspSemisweet 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.
