For the Filling
- ½ cup walnuts
- 1 tsp walnut oil
- 1 ½ cup Walnut Flour
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- ¼ cup coconut cream
- ½ blood orange juice and zest
- Pitaya powder optional, for color
- 1 pinch sea salt
For the Chocolate
- 1 cup dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao)
- ½ tsp coconut oil
- Place walnuts in a food processor and mix until mostly smooth. Add walnut oil and continue to mix until the mixture forms the consistency of nut butter.
- Add walnut flour, maple syrup, coconut cream, blood orange, pitaya powder (if using), and a pinch of salt to the processor with the walnut butter. Mix again until smooth.
- Scoop rounded teaspoons of the mixture and roll into balls. Spread out on a parchment sheet lined tray and place in the freezer for 1+ hour to harden.
- Using a double boiler or microwave, melt the chocolate and coconut oil. Stir frequently in either method for a smooth chocolate.
- Once the chocolate has melted, remove the balls from the freezer. Using a fork and spoon, dip each ball into the melted chocolate, completely covering the outside with chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off before transferring back to the parchment lined tray.
- Continue dipping each ball until all are coated in chocolate. If you run low on chocolate, melt a little more. Top each truffle with additional orange zest, chopped walnuts, or sea salt if you wish.
- Transfer the tray with chocolate covered balls to the fridge or to the freezer to harden.
- Store truffles in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for a longer period of time.
- For coconut cream: Refrigerate a can of full-fat coconut milk for a few hours or overnight. The coconut cream will solidify on top of the can so you can scoop out as much as needed.
- Add pitaya powder to the mixture in small batches to create an ombre coloring throughout the truffles.
