  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (12 ounce bag)
  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Large pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder (or cocoa powder)


  • Pour coconut milk in a saucepan on stovetop. Place chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl and place over coconut milk. This will act as a double boiler (or use a double boiler if you have one). Heat on medium heat until coconut milk comes to a simmer, and chocolate chips are melted slightly.
  • Remove both from the heat, and pour coconut milk over chocolate chips to finish melting. Mix until smooth.
  • Add cinnamon, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Pour into an 7 1/2" x 9 1/2" glass baking dish, or similar size. Cover and put in the refrigerator to set.
  • Once mixture is set, use a melon baller, spoon, or ice cream scoop to form balls. Roll balls in your hands, then into cacao powder. Refrigerate.
