8 oz dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa), chopped
1/4 cup coconut oil

1. Heat chocolate, oil, and 3 Tbsp water in a double boiler, stirring, until just melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and sea salt. 2. Transfer to an 8-inch baking dish and refrigerate until mixture is set but still pliable, about 2 hours. 3. Using a 1-inch scoop or melon baller, scoop out chocolate mixture and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Coat hands in cocoa and roll chocolate into balls. Refrigerate on parchment-lined baking sheet 10 minutes.
