Chocolate Placenta Truffles! (Placenta optional)⠀

Alright, last week I promised you some chocolate, and if you're gonna eat your placenta, you might as well do it in style, right? So close your eyes and imagine yourself a few days postpartum: unwashed hair tied up in a messy bun, lounging in a stained nursing top & PJ pants... and snacking on chocolate bonbons. Not too bad, eh?⠀
Okay, maybe it sounds a little weird to eat your placenta in dessert form, but you won't taste it this way, thanks to the bittersweet flavor of the chocolate! And... if you don't plan on consuming your placenta at all, no problem- you can still enjoy these delicious treats, sans birth organ.⠀
8 oz dark chocolate⠀
1/2 cup heavy cream (or full fat coconut milk)⠀
1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup⠀
1/2 tsp vanilla extract⠀
1/4 cup crushed almonds (or any nut/seeds)⠀
1 Tbsp dried placenta powder (just take it right out of the capsules) (OPTIONAL)⠀
1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder (optional)⠀
1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)⠀
In a double boiler (over low heat) melt dark chocolate and cream, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly, then add honey, vanilla, crushed almonds and dried placenta powder. Mixx well & pour into bowl; cover & chill for 2 hours.⠀
Scoop individual truffles. Roll in shredded coconut, cocoa powder, or crushed almonds. Chill for 30 more minutes, then store in airtight container in fridge. 1 or 2 truffles a day postpartum should help balance your mood & give you a breast milk boost. Also, this may be the one time in your life that no one else wants to eat your chocolate! Yay!⠀
