  • 1 ½ c dark chocolate chips (dairy free/allergy friendly if needed)
  • c heavy whipping cream (or full fat coconut milk for dairy free)
  • 3 T amaretto liqueur
  • c cacao powder


  • Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl.
  • Over medium heat, add cream or coconut milk to sauce pan and stir frequently until hot and starts a very light bubbling.
  • Pour milk over chocolate and stir until smooth and creamy.
  • Add amaretto and stir until blended and creamy.
  • Chill for about 4 hours.
  • After chilling, use a cookie scoop to spoon out enough to make one inch balls. (These will get sticky. Start a ball and then roll it lightly to dust in cocoa powder. This will help keep your hands from being a chocolate mess)
  • Roll truffles in cacao powder. You can also roll them in sprinkles or chopped nuts!
  • Chill until ready to serve.
