To make the center nice and chewy, we also mix in a little desiccated coconut so that it firms up as it chills. If you can’t find desiccated coconut, you can swap in unsweetened shredded coconut instead.
Freezing the filling makes it easier to cut and prevents it from crumbling as you assemble the praline. Plus, keeping it at a nice cool temperature helps the chocolate shell harden quicker.
Creating The Dark Chocolate Shell
To create our silky-sweet shell, we melt together raw cacao powder, cacao butter, honey, and coconut oil in a double boiler. This produces a semi-sweet chocolate sauce we use to coat the entire praline.
The great thing about raw cacao is that it’s rich in powerful antioxidants. We like using it to keep blood sugars in check, without sacrificing that chocolatey flavor.
For the best quality, look for cacao powder without any added sweeteners.
Helpful Tips To Get Started:
- Utilize any leftover filling. You can roll extras into bliss balls, or refreeze them for 10 minutes to make more filing.
- Keep leftovers handy. Refrigerate pralines for up to one week, or freeze in a glass dish for up to one month. Just let them thaw for 10 minutes at room temperature, and enjoy!
