  • 3 oz. (100g) of dark chocolate, 70-80%⁠
  • 1/3 cup of full-fat coconut milk⁠
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar⁠
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee⁠
  • 2 tbsp almond butter⁠
  • pinch sea salt⁠
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder, for dusting⁠


  1. Place the chocolate in a bowl and heat in a microwave just until it starts to melt.⁠
  2. In a small pot, heat the coconut milk, along with the instant coffee and sugar just until it’s coming to a boil. Next, whisk in the almond butter with a pinch of sea salt, and stir until smooth.⁠
  3. Pour the hot coconut milk mixture into the bowl with the chocolate and stir it very gently and slowly until well combined.⁠
  4. Fix a layer of clingfilm right over the top of the mixture, to prevent a skin forming and chill in the fridge for about 2 hours, until firm. ⁠
  5. Lightly dust a clean surface with cacao powder and roll a spoonful of the chocolate in it. Shape into balls and serve at room temperature. Store in the fridge.⁠
