Print Recipe
3-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles are simple to make, taste divine, and are dairy-free!


Optional Variations

  • 2-4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-4 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 2-4 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 2-4 teaspoons almond extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder for rolling
  • ¼ cup crushed peppermint candy for rolling
  • ¼ cup finely chopped roasted almonds for rolling
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut lightly toasted
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated lemon zest for rolling


  • Place the chocolate chips in a large, heat-safe bowl. Add the coconut oil and sea salt, then set aside.
  • Heat the coconut milk in a small pan over medium heat until simmering, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour the hot coconut milk over the chocolate chips, stirring until all the chocolate chips are completely melted.
  • Add the extract (if using), starting with 2 teaspoons, stirring to combine. Taste and add additional extract if desired. Alternatively, divide the melted chocolate mixture between several bowls and add different extracts to each bowl, stirring to combine.
  • Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • When the chocolate mixture is solid, scoop heaping teaspoons onto a pan or plate. Roll each into a ball using your hands. Roll each ball into toppings of choice. Refrigerate an additional 30-60 minutes.
  • 7. Serve immediately or store in the fridge, covered, for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.


*Be sure to use dairy-free chocolate chips if you're avoiding dairy. I linked the brand I use for you above in the ingredient list
If using lemon zest or crushed candy canes to roll, serve right away. Cocoa powder does the best job of coating the truffles so that they don’t stick to each other or to the pan or plate.
Add extract flavors to make different truffle varieties: lemon, almond, peppermint, vanilla, or any other flavor you like!
Similarly, roll the truffles in different toppings: cocoa powder, crushed peppermint candies, chopped nuts, toasted coconut, lemon zest, or any other topping you can dream up.
