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. 😉
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! 🙂
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 truffles will melt less quickly and roll a lot easier!
