4. Vegan Truffles

Nothing says decadent like a chocolate truffle, and the fun thing about truffles is that you can modify a basic recipe in all sorts of ways! Try adding 1/4t cayenne and 1t cinnamon, for example, to create Mexican hot chocolate truffles. You can add other herbs and spices, ground nuts, or dried fruit, as well. Here’s a very basic chocolate truffle recipe to get you going:

1/4c coconut milk
2c vegan chocolate chips
1/4c + 2T coconut oil
1/3c cocoa powder, ground nuts, or coconut flakes

Heat the coconut milk in a double boiler, then stir in the chocolate chips and coconut oil until everything is completely combined.

Transfer the mixture to a shallow bowl and refrigerate until it’s cooled all the way through.

Use a spoon or melon baller to create your truffles, and roll each one in cocoa powder, nuts, or coconut before transferring to a storage container. Your truffles will keep in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
