Why I Love This Recipe

Winter brings oranges, a welcome Christmas treat. Toasty pecans, golden shredded coconut, and the essence of oranges mingle joyfully with fine chocolate--the classic Ambrosial Salad transformed into a bite-sized morsel of sheer delight.

Ingredients You'll Need

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 a little.

Roll in toasted coconut shreds.

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