Chocolate-Coconut Truffles

The more we eat vegan, the more we consider going raw. Desserts from raw sources are especially appealing.

1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup agave nectar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup coconut (shredded)
2 1/4 cups cocoa powder

Using a hand mixer, blend coconut oil, agave nectar, vanilla, and salt. Mix in the shredded coconut, blend until smooth. Stir in 2 cups of cocoa powder. Chill in refrigerator for at least 10 minutes. Make balls from mixture, roll in cocoa powder. Store in refrigerator.

The colder these are when serving, the better. I recommend serving with a fruit sauce, something with raspberries would be really good.
