1 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips

½ cup full-fat coconut milk

2 tbsp vegan-friendly whiskey/brandy

¼ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of chili flakes/powder

Pinch of sea salt

Cocoa/cacao powder for rolling


Combine chocolate and coconut milk in a bowl. Heat up in microwave in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is soft enough. Combine well. Alternatively, melt chocolate using a bain-marie/double boiler. Mix all the other ingredients and chill until firm or overnight. Scoop about a tablespoon of the truffle and roll in the cocoa powder into a round shape.
