- In the top of a double boiler, melt 1 cup dark chocolate until smooth, then whisk in the coconut milk until smooth.
- Buzz the raspberries in a blender until they are powder, then stir into the chocolate mixture and scrape into a bowl. Place in the freezer until it is firm enough to scoop. This will take about 45 minutes to an hour.
- When it is firm enough to scoop, form into small 1 inch balls, and place on a parchment lined tray. Place back in the freezer until completely firm.
- Melt the other 1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler until smooth.
- Dip each chocolate into the melted chocolate letting the excess drain off (I like to set them on a fork), then place back onto the tray. Repeat with remaining truffles until they are all dipped, and place back in the freezer until the chocolate hardens.
*Truffles keep for up to a month in the refrigerator.
