Vegan truffles

Aw yeah, you heard me right, it's vegan truffles! It's everything you like about truffles, with just three dairy-free ingredients. Pretty excited about this as a vegan/gluten-free wedding alternative! I think it will work to dust them with powdered sugar, sprinkles, nuts, etc instead of or in addition to cocoa powder, but I haven't tried that yet. This made 32 1" truffles.

3/4 c coconut milk (eg TJ's coconut cream)
10 oz vegan dark chocolate (eg TJ's pound plus)
extracts of choice, to taste
cocoa powder for dusting

Chop chocolate and place in a bowl. Bring coconut milk almost to a boil, then pour over the chocolate and add extracts. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Cover the surface with plastic wrap, and put in the fridge just until set (1-2 hr).

Line your truffle receptacle with parchment or wax paper, and put a bunch of cocoa powder on a plate and on your palms. Scoop out 1" balls of chocolate, roll between cocoa-dusted palms, toss around the cocoa-dusted plate to coat completely, and place in your lined container. Let set in the fridge.
