Notes

For an extra kick, add a splash of your favorite liquor when you’re mixing in the melted chocolate mixture to the cream cheese!

Ingredients

  • 1½  Cup  semisweet chocolate
  • ½  Cup  coconut oil
  • 1½  Cup  confectioners sugar
  • 4  Ounces  cream cheese, softened
  • ½  Cup  raw turbinado natural cane sugar, such as Maui Brand
  • ½  Cup  white natural cane sugar, such as Maui Brand

Directions

Add the chocolate and coconut oil to a small saucepan and stir over low heat until the chocolate melts. Once melted, remove the chocolate from heat.

Using an electric mixer, combine the confectioners sugar and cream cheese in a bowl and mix until it is light and fluffy.

Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese, and mix until combined.

Place the bowl in the refrigerator until the mixture is solid but not too hard, 20 to 30 minutes.

Mix the turbinado sugar with the white sugar and set aside for later use.

Remove from the refrigerator and use your hands to form the mixture into bite-size balls.

Roll the balls in the sugar mixture. Enjoy!

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
