(VEGAN) CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES!

HAPPY MAY GUYS! I can’t believe that it is almost Summer – where has this year gone?! Time’s just going by too fast that I can’t even keep up anymore! April swooshed by so quickly – I didn’t even realize that it was May already! As we had a long weekend thanks to May 1st (which, as in many other countries, is Labor day in Austria) I had some time on my hands to try out some recipes. This recipe turned out SO GOOD on the first try, I decided to take photos and share it with you guys.

If you have ever had chocolate truffles, the only word that pops into mind is O-M-G (!!!) Literally feels like heaven for anyone that digs the chocolate (just like me #convictedchocolateaddict).

If you ever looked into the history of how truffles came about, you might be surprised, it was a total accident! An apprentice of a french chef was trying to make pastry cream but he accidentally poured hot cream into the wrong bowl – the one that was filled with chocolate chunks. When the mixture cooled off, he realized how easily he was able to form little balls. Once he rolled them into cocoa powder, they reminded him of fungus named “truffle” and that’s how the creative name came about. πŸ˜‰

Even until today, the highest quality of truffles are rolled by hand hence the SUPER EXPENSIVE price tag! If you enjoy truffles but do not want to pay all that $$$ then stay tuned! Making truffles not only will make you feel like a master chocolatier but you’re gonna wonder “wait, thats it?!” – that’s how easy they are to make!

In this recipe, I have replaced all dairy with vegan ingredients and present to you the most delicious, vegan chocolate truffles that you will ever taste! They go great with coffee and tea and are truly melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Chocolate truffles aren’t just for V-Day or a special occasion, they are so easy to make that they are a really fun Sunday activity for rainy days! πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy these just as much as I (and my Sister did, who got her husband to drive through town to pick some up – LOL).

Quick tip: Before you start rolling, put some cocoa powder on your palms – the trufflesΒ will melt less quickly and roll a lot easier!

Instructions
  1. Break up the 150 grams of chocolate into little pieces.
  2. Gently heat up the coconut milk in a pan (make sure not to bring to a boil).
  3. Add in coconut oil and maple syrup.
  4. Pour hot coconut milk over chocolate pieces and whisk until the chocolate melts and it turns into a smooth texture. This may take some time, don't despair!
  5. Once the mixture cools down, cover with clingfilm and leave the bowl in the fridge overnight.
  6. Before rolling, make sure to dust your hands in a bit of cocoa powder to avoid the truffles melting too quickly (this is especially important if you have fairly warm hands, as I do).
  7. Scoop out a tablespoon of the mixture, roll into a ball in your palms and then roll and dust in the cocoa powder. Store in an airtight container and in the fridge.

  • These look so cute and delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe – truffles are super expensive, so I’ll definitely have to try this out myself, and see how they turn out! I also had no idea that truffles occurred because of a chef’s accident – love learning these little facts about food.
