Chocolate Vegan Truffles

Truffles. Little round toothsome candies. Of chocolate, cream and sometimes butter. You will be blown away by how delicious these chocolate vegan truffles are.

Vegan Chocolate Truffles

No heavy or cream today.  These nibbles are dairy free, and made with only three ingredients, chocolate, coconut and raisins. They can be rolled in cocoa powder or unsweetened coconut flakes–I like both for the attractive contrast.  Vegan and pretty much non-perishable, so shelf stable you can ship them to the tropics without a meltdown.



Chocolate and cream truffles, christened so because, when they’re is rolled in cocoa they bear resemblance to the really expensive savory ones, the rare black fungus routed out near the roots of trees by dogs and pigs.



In my past life as a pastry chef, I made all kinds of chocolate truffles. And I’ve enjoyed plenty: You know, just a bite to see if they’re good. And another to make sure.

Frozen nibbles, on a trip to the freezer to get something else. Peanut Butter. Margarita white chocolate, finished with a pinch of salt, milk chocolate and cranberry, or dark chocolate with rum, Kahlua or Grand Marnier.  See what I mean? Like potato chips, bet you can’t eat just one.


I’ve backed off the butter and sugar now that I’m not going to the bakery, where sugar was always just fingertips away. Hungry and busy? Pop a truffle into your mouth… one of these vegan chocolate truffles.

    I made these yesterday. I found i had to chill the mixture a bit before forming the balls, but they are delicious and very easy to make. Thanks! Reply · 13 December, 2014

      Thanks Judy. Glad you like them. You are right, if it’s warm, as in Hawaii, you probably need to chill the batter for a little bit. I added that note to the recipe instructions. Reply · 13 December, 2014
