  1. 200g Coconut Butter
  2. 3 Tbsp Coconut Cream
  3. 2 tsp Maple Syrup
  4. 20g Orange Juice
  5. 1 tsp Orange Zest
  6. 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  7. 100g Organic Dark Chocolate (70%)
  1. 50g Coconut Butter
  2. 2 tsp Maple Syrup
  3. 3 Tbsp Coconut Cream
  1. To make the chocolates place all the ingredients except for the chocolate into the mixing bowl and mix 10 Sec/Speed 4.
  2. Place into the fridge for 30 mins -1 hour to chill. Once chilled sufficiently, roll the mix into 14 even small bit sized balls.
  3. Break the chocolate into small pieces and mill 10 Sec/Speed 9. Then melt the chocolate 2 Mins/50°/Speed 2, scraping down the sides of the bowl closer to the finish time.
  4. Pour into a shallow bowl and dip the chocolates one at a time into the chocolate to thoroughly coat, before placing onto a baking paper lined rack or tray to set. You can place them in the fridge to set a bit quicker.
  5. Once the chocolates are set, place the coconut butter, maple and coconut cream into the Thermomix and mix 10 Sec/Speed 3-4.
  6. Place into a piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle and pipe little crosses on the chocolates. Place back into the fridge to completely set, then transfer into an airtight container.
  1. I couldn't find all my piping bags when I made these, so I popped the icing into a little glad bag and cut a little hole off one corner and used that to pipe the crosses! Little more rustic but still works a treat!
  2. Don't forget you'll need my Coconut Butter to make these!
