Preparation

  1. Place all the ingredients for the filling inside your food processor and process until a thick mixture forms. It should be thick enough to form into a soft ball.
  2. Scoop mixture using a one-tablespoon measuring spoon and roll into balls with your hands, transfer to a baking sheet and let them set in the freezer for 15 minutes approximately.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the chocolate coating by stirring the cacao butter, cacao powder, and maple syrup in a small saucepan over low heat. Once the mixture is smooth immediately remove from the heat (it shouldn't boil). Set aside to cool.
  4. Once the coconut balls are firm, dip each one in the chocolate coating using a toothpick.
  5. Transfer to the baking sheet again and freeze again until set.
  6. Repeat the coating process to make sure the bonbons are well covered in chocolate.
  7. Place in an airtight container and store in the freezer.
