For the Truffles

  • 9 ounces Lily’s chocolate chips dark, milk, or semi-sweet
  • cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla

For the Chocolate Coating

  • ½ cup Lily's chocolate chips dark, milk, or semi-sweet
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

For the Toppings (all optional)

  • cocoa powder
  • chocolate sprinkles sugar-free
  • sea salt


For the Truffles

  • Heat heavy whipping cream to simmer in a small saucepan. Stir frequently. Add any flavoring.
  • Once cream is just simmering, pour over chocolate chips in a separate bowl. Allow cream and chocolate to mingle, 2-3 minutes, then stir until smooth.

  • Let mixture cool, then place in refrigerator until firm but pliable.
  • Scoop tablespoon-sized portions onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. Roll individual portions quickly in hands to shape into balls, being careful not to melt chocolate. If chocolate softens, return to refrigerator to firm, approximately 5 minutes.
