Two words: vegan truffles.
Whether you have a craving for chocolate or you’re looking for something to bring to a party, these truffles will be a hit!
- Sweetened condensed coconut milk
- Ghirardelli 60% chocolate bar
- Cocoa powder
That’s right – three simple ingredients!
You can, however, add in various ingredients to make these vegan truffles really pop. Coconut flakes, nuts, or freeze dried strawberries would be an awesome addition!
Another great option? After you roll them in cocoa powder, dip them into chocolate for a harder exterior!
How to make vegan truffles
First, you have to melt the chocolate and the sweetened condensed coconut milk together. I highly recommend using a double boiler for this step, but you can use a microwave if you don’t have one!
If you have a double boiler, fill the bottom pan with 2 inches of water. Set the second sauce pan on top and begin to boil the water. Essentially, as the water heats gets warm and steam is released, the steam stays trapped between the two pots which allows whatever is in the top pot to melt (or cook)!
Add the chocolate, cocoa powder and sweetened condensed coconut milk to the top pan of the double boiler and melt, stirring often. When the ingredients have combined gently pour the mixture into a small, shallow baking dish and let it harden in the fridge for up to three hours (or until the mixture has set).
Note: You’ll know the mixture is finished setting when you stick a knife into it and it comes out clean.
Now comes the fun part – rolling the truffles in the cocoa powder!
Take a cookie scoop and begin scooping out small balls of truffles from the hardened mixture. Quickly give the balls a roll with your hands to shape them and toss them in cocoa powder.
From here, you can enjoy your truffles right away or store them in the fridge for up to two weeks!
Frequently asked questions
Have a question about these vegan truffles? You weren’t the only one!
Below are some of the commonly asked questions I get when it comes to these bad boys – if you have a question that’s not answered below, make sure to leave a comment!
How long do these vegan truffles last?
That truly depends on how you store them! If you keep them in an air tight container in the fridge, they’ll last you about two weeks.
If you plan on freezing these vegan truffles, they should last about 3 months. You may need to pop them in the fridge to soften before eating them, though!
Are these vegan truffles able to be served at room temperature?
Unfortunately not. These truffles are soooo freaking soft and, if left out on the counter for too long, they’ll begin to melt and stick to whatever you’re serving them on.
It’s best to serve them right away or directly out of the fridge!Print
