Easy Chocolate Truffles
Many people believe when you go vegan you give up creamy chocolate treats like truffles. I thought I'd make my own and keep it simple so you can copy the recipe. Rich, creamy and VERY moorish!
- 1 cup coconut cream see tips for getting cream from a can of coconut milk.
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of sea/pink salt
- 450 g dark chocolate
- cocoa powder
- On a very low heat warm the cream, vanilla extract and add the salt. When the cream it hot add the chocolate (break into smaller pieces) and keep stirring until melted. Pour into a bowl and allow to cool for about 20 minutes. Pop in the fridge for around 4-5 hours (or overnight) until its set. using a tablespoon scoop out some of the chocolate and roll into a ball. Roll in cocoa powder and set aside. Repeat until you have no truffle mix left. Store in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!
TIP: Be sure to heat the coconut cream and chocolate on a low heat. I used the lowest setting. The cheapest way to get coconut cream is to chill a can of coconut milk in the fridge for several hours. Open the tin a pour out the water. Just the cream will be left. Why not add orange or mint oil? A shot of coffee? Once set you can freeze then coat in melted chocolate for a crisp shell and soft truffle inside.
