4 servings


  • 12 oz dark chocolate chips/chunks
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Pour chocolate into a large bowl. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring coconut milk to a gentle boil, pouring over chocolate. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.
  2. Stir in coconut oil, cinnamon, salt, and 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds. Refrigerate mixture for a couple hours, or until cool and solid.
  3. Pour the sesame seeds and black pepper into one bowl, and the shredded coconut into another. Using a spoon, scoop the chilled chocolate* and roll quickly in your hands (so as not to melt it with your warm little paws), then roll and coat evenly in either shredded coconut or sesame seeds.
  4. Store in a cool place before serving.
  5. *Truffles can be as big or small as you like! We usually make them about the size of a quarter-machine gum ball.
