- 1 tsp. Pure Mexican Vanilla Extract

This recipe was adapted from the Decadent Chocolate Truffles from TasteofHealing.com.
Place coconut milk, oil, and chocolate over a double boiler. Allow chocolate to soften and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, cocoa powder and paprika. Chill until firm, about 4 to 6 hours. Scoop with a spoon or mini scooper and roll into 1 1/2-inch (or so) balls. In one bowl, mix together pistachios and orange zest. Add the Mayan Cocoa to a separate bowl. Coat half of the truffles in the nut mixture and half in the cocoa. Chill until ready to serve.
