This happened by accident, or should I say Snaccident...I was trying to make a truffle filling for one of the Death By Chocolate calendar recipes, using a coconut butter and the darn stuff just wouldn’t come together. Then I tasted it and realised that it should not be discarded as a fail as it tastes fantastic...a word to the wise however, the results of this recipe can vary significantly depending on the coconut you use. Please seek out a good organic coconut, it is totally going to make all the difference.
If it fails to come together after the time stated, add more coconut oil or more blending time or both.
