Paleo Cashew Truffles

Directions

  1. Place chocolate and coconut oil in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan bring coconut milk just to boiling; pour over chocolate. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Stir until smooth. Stir in maple syrup and vanilla. Cover and chill 45 minutes or until just firm enough to shape.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cashews in a shallow baking pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted, stirring once. Set aside 35 whole cashews. In a food processor cover and pulse remaining cashews and salt until finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. Roll chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls. For each truffle, place a whole cashew in center of a chocolate portion and shape into a ball. Roll ball in chopped cashews. Store in the refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving.
