No Bake Toasted Coconut Chocolate Bonbons Recipe

The holidays are quickly approaching and many of us will be attending holiday parties or hosting one ourselves. On top of that...many of us like to make homemade foodie items and give them as holiday gifts. At least...I know all of those apply to me! These look absolutely delicious!!!

Today I'm sharing a guest recipe with all of you courtesy of VeganFusionAcademy.com. You can visit their website to learn about their new Vegan programs and to gather additional information about them. The following recipe makes 15 bonbons.

No Bake Toasted Coconut Chocolate Bonbons Recipe

2 cups vegan dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans or macadamia nuts, toasted
1/2 cup coconut flakes, toasted
1/4 cup almond or peanut butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch cardamom powder

Place chocolate chips in double boiler on medium high heat until chips are melted, stirring frequently. Place in a large bowl. Set aside 1/4 cup of the toasted coconut to sprinkle on top of cookies. Add remaining ingredients to the melted chocolate and mix well.

Measure out 15 servings with a small scoop, roll into balls and place on a parchment paper lined or well oiled baking sheet. Top with remaining .cup coconut. Refrigerate until cool and serve slightly chilled or at room temperature.

When I make this recipe I would probably use regular chocolate chips with the rest of the ingredients. I like all the ingredients in this recipe.
