Paleo Chocolate Truffles

  • Author: Sharon Lachendro
  • Total Time: 3 hours 20 minutes

These paleo chocolate truffles offer a creamy center with a crisp chocolate shell. Made with simple ingredients like coconut milk, ghee, and paleo-friendly chocolate chips, they’re a delicious and guilt-free treat.


Units Scale

For the Truffles:

  • 2 cups Paleo-friendly chocolate chips (e.g., Enjoy Life Mini Chips)
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (canned)
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or maple sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Coating:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups Paleo-friendly chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • Unsweetened coconut (optional)
  • Cocoa/cacao powder (optional)


1. Prepare the Truffle Mixture:

  • Combine the chocolate chips, coconut milk, ghee, and sugar in a medium pot.
  • Heat on low, stirring regularly, until the chocolate is fully melted.
  • After achieving a smooth mixture, remove from heat and incorporate the vanilla extract.
  • Transfer the mixture into a glass bowl or a glass 8×8 pan.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for approximately 2 hours.

2. Shape the Truffles:

  • Once chilled, use a spoon to scoop out 1-tablespoon portions and place them on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. This should yield about 20-24 truffles, depending on size.
  • Place the scooped truffles in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  • After freezing, roll the truffles into more defined spherical shapes. Put them back in the freezer to solidify while you prepare the coating.

3. Prepare the Chocolate Coating:

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips with the 2 tsp of coconut oil.
  • Melt in the microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, stirring afterward.
  • Continue to heat in 20-second intervals (at 50% power) until the mixture is fully melted and has a smooth consistency.

4. Coat the Truffles:

  • Individually dip the truffles into the melted chocolate mixture, ensuring they’re fully coated.
  • Place each coated truffle back on the wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Once all truffles are coated, refrigerate them until the chocolate hardens.
  • As an alternative to the chocolate coating, the truffles can be rolled in unsweetened cocoa/cacao powder or unsweetened shredded coconut.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Once set, store the truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • For optimal texture and flavor, bring them to room temperature before serving.
