Chocolate Truffles

We’ve talked about the chocolate question before, but that just scratches the surface when it comes to vegan desserts. Lately, I’ve been really craving that most decadent of chocolates: truffles!

Here are five delicious truffle recipes, including tips for veganizing, where necessary:

1. Sinful Chocolate Truffles

This is a nice, simple recipe for chocolate truffles. To veganize, just make sure you’re using vegan baker’s chocolate. You can substitute almond milk for the heavy cream. Instead of butter, check out Earth Balance or Smart Balance Organic.

2. Raw Chocolate Truffles

This recipe from Amy Bell is already fully vegan!

3. Cardamom Chocolate Truffles

Yum! This is another one that’s easy to veganize. Just make sure the chocolate and chocolate chips are vegan. Whole Foods’ in-store brand of chocolate chips would work, as would Ghirardelli’s semi-sweet chocolate chips. Canned, full fat coconut milk would be an amazing substitute for the heavy cream in this recipe!

Up next: Truffles get spicy and a little bit boozy.
