Chocolate and coconut truffles

These are the chocolate and coconut truffles I made yesterday using a recipe from BBC good food as my basic recipe.

I melted 200g of dark chocolate with 100ml double cream and a little vanilla essence, then left in the fridge for 2hrs.
Later on, I rolled my mix into balls and coated with some desiccated coconut.

These are really rich tasting- the dark chocolate is complimented by the sweet coconut. When I make these again I’d like try a little peppermint in the mix to give them a fresher taste.
