Coconut Coated Chocolate Truffles

These delicious truffles are fun and easy to make. My children enjoyed making coconut coated chocolate truffles to give family and friends during our Eid celebration. 
To make the chocolate truffles you will need...

2 tbsp cream
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract or beans from a vanilla pod
1 tbsp butter
3 1/2 oz chocolate broken into small pieces if it is a slab
cocoa powder or coconut shaving or crushed nuts

Mix the cream, vanilla and bean in low heat stirring until it melts. Then add chocolates and stir until the chocolates melt. 
Transfer the chocolate mixture into a bowl and let it cool. Then put the bowl in the freezer for about 1/2 hour until it thickens taking it out every 5 minutes to stir.
Wash hands and take about 1/2 tbsp and roll it into a ball between the palms quickly, so the chocolate does not melt for the warmth of the palms. 
After rolling it in either the cocoa powder or coconut shaving or crushed nuts place it into mini baking cups and package it.
To package these homemade gifts neatly...

Wrap a piece of cardboard and leave a few truffles on it. Then wrap it with a transparent gift bag and tie with a colourful ribbon before presenting.
