3-Ingredient Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow and I thought I’d share with you an easy last minute chocolate treat that you could gift your Valentine (or just treat yourself, because that’s always good).

These chocolate truffles are very indulgent and delicious but still pretty quick to make. The main truffles are made of only three ingredients: chocolate, coconut cream and vanilla extract. The coating is super versatile, you can adjust whatever you roll them in according to your or your loved one’s preferences. For this recipe I used three different coatings: roasted hazelnuts, pistachio and freeze dried strawberries. I’ve previously also coated the truffles in desiccated coconut and cacao powder. As you can imagine there’s really no limits regarding toppings (as long as it can stick to chocolate of course).

And of course, you can eat these any time of the year… at least that’s what I’m doing.

I hope you enjoy making (and eating!) these little truffles. Please don’t forget to tag us on Instagram @nothangryanymore – we love to see your creations!

Until next week,

Servings 12 truffles

Ingredients
  

Truffles

  • 150 g vegan dark chocolate
  • 100 g full cream coconut cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean extract

Topping options

  • hazelnuts
  • pistachios
  • freeze dried strawberries

Instructions
 

  • Finely chop the chocolate and add it to a small to medium sized bowl.
  • Heat up the coconut cream in a small sauce pan and pour over the cut up chocolate in the bowl.
  • Cover the bowl with a lid and let sit for a few minutes, then add the vanilla bean extract and stir the mixture with a spatula. All the chocolate should easily melt together with the coconut cream.
  • Once the chocolate and coconut cream are fully combined, cover the bowl in cling film and let rest in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • After the truffle mixture has set, take the bowl out of the fridge. Lightly toast some chopped up hazelnuts and grind some pistachios as well as freeze dried strawberries in a mortar and pestle.
  • With a teaspoon take out some of the mixture and roll it in your hands until it forms a bowl. The mixture can be quite solid sometimes. To make life easier, heat up the teaspoon with hot water before digging into the chocolate.
  • Roll the truffles in your preferred toppings and enjoy!

      Hi Gail, I find it best to add the vanilla just after you let the coconut cream and chocolate sit for a few minutes, but before you stir them together. I have edited the recipe, so it should all make sense now 🙂
