SALTED COCONUT TRUFFLES
8 ounces good quality 70% chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt
2 cups all natural flaked coconut
sea salt flakes for garnish
Place chopped chocolate into a heat-proof bowl. Bring one cup of heavy cream to a simmer on the stove taking care not to scald cream. Pour over chocolate and let set for about 3 minutes. Whisk to combine. Add vanilla, salt and stir until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate until completely cooled and chocolate becomes solid. Place coconut on a plate. Using a small cookie scoop, form small balls with chocolate and roll into coconut and garnish with sea salt flakes. Repeat until finished. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
