  • 1 can unsweetened coconut cream (13.5 oz, only use the top cream portion)
  • 1 bag dark chocolate melting wafer (10 oz)
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut


  • Refrigerate the can of coconut cream the night before to separate the top cream from the liquid. Scoop the cream out of the can using a spoon, leaving all of the clear liquid behind.
  • Add the coconut cream to a heat proof glass bowl along with the chocolate melting wafer, heat the bowl over a simmering pot of water until the chocolate melts, stirring with a spatula. Turn off the heat and continue to stir until smooth. Allow the bowl to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for 1.5 - 2 hours.
  • When the chocolate truffle mixture solidifies but still malleable, take it out of the fridge and portion into 1” balls with a small ice cream scoop.
  • Add sweetened shredded coconut to a small bowl. Roll the coconut truffles in the coconut to cover completely.
  • Serve immediately or keep refrigerated until ready to serve.


  • Use the left over coconut water from the can to make smoothies.
  • The coconut top cream on its own weighs about 7 oz.
  • Refrigerate any left over and serve straight from the fridge.
