Serves 30-45 | Prep Time 90 includes chill time | Cook Time 5-15 minutes


15 oz 60-72% chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
10 drops sweet orange essential oil
2 oz toasted pecans, chopped
1 cup toasted finely shredded coconut

Gently melt together the chopped chocolate and coconut milk.

Cool to wrist temperature before stirring in the essential oil and chopped pecans.

Chill till firm.

Scoop and form bite-sized balls, using your hands so the chocolate melts enough to stick to the coconut.

Roll in toasted coconut shreds.

Serve immediately for sheer delight while the truffle is at it's fragrant, melty, crunchy best!
