Happy Valentine’s Day! You might be thinking about the sweet treats you’d like to cook up for that special someone. Well, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you! These are the most decadent, mind-blowing, make you giddy with endorphins, heaven on earth, chocolate coconut truffles we’ve have ever tasted! And trust me, we’ve had our share of chocolate.
We love traditional chocolatey treats as much as the next person, but what we don’t love is the nasty sugar crash, hangover and the compromised immune system that they leave us with.
These truffles are guilt-free and won’t leave you with a sugar crash. Raw cacao is a great source of natural energy and antioxidants, and coconut contains beneficial healthy fat. Did you also know that coconut oil can help to improve heart health and thyroid function? It also supports your immune system, boosts the metabolism, and can promote weight loss. Now that’s a dessert that loves you back!
Enjoy! Please let us know what you think about this recipe in the comment section below. We always love hearing from you!

With love and chocolate bliss,

Chocolate Bliss Truffles
Yield: About 30 truffles
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, warmed to soften
- 1/4 tsp. Himalayan crystal salt plus a pinch for garnish
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup dried shredded coconut
- 2 cups raw cacao powder
In a high-speed blender, blend the warmed coconut oil, salt, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Add the shredded coconut slowly and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in cacao powder and mix by hand until thoroughly combined. Watch for chunks of chocolate and combine well. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 15 to 20 minutes to harden the mixture slightly.
Spoon heaping tablespoons of the mixture and roll into small balls. If the mixture sticks to your hands and you aren’t able to roll it easily, put it back into the refrigerator for a little longer to achieve the right consistency.
Sprinkle finished truffles with a pinch of Himalayan crystal salt and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
These are incredible! I am a huge chocolate lover and I love these. They are the best truffle I have ever had. I will make them for everyone I know this holiday season. YUM, YUM, and YUM!!!!!

Are these okay to have during the 2 week cleanse?! It would be so awesome if they were!
No but they are great for transition week to help ease off of sweets. No stimulants on the cleanse. :)
