This recipe for vegan chocolate truffles is perfection on so many levels and comes together in under 15 minutes! So… if you are a chocolate lover you MUST try it!
These vegan chocolate truffles are the perfect treat! They are silky, chocolaty, rich, luscious and super simple to make.
They also pair beautifully with a cup of hot coffee or tea.
The ingredients for this recipe are only 4: chocolate, salt flakes, margarine and coconut milk.
Since we use few ingredients these must be of high quality. It's totally worth spending some extra cash for some great chocolate, you'll thank me later, trust me!
For this recipe we use dark chocolate with at least 70% of cacao. Depending on the level of sweetness desired, it is possible to use chocolate with a cacao level between 70% and 80%.
The higher the cacao percentage the less sweet the treats will turn out.
Margarine helps us stabilize truffles and make them creamier. It can be substituted with refined coconut oil.
Do They Taste Like Coconut?
Short answer: No! The dark chocolate covers perfectly the coconut flavour. Therefore don't be afraid of using it. You'll love them, trust me!
