The 2 – Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Truffles
February 14 will be as sweet as ever making the dark chocolate truffles recipe we just found on Minimalist Baker. You just need 2 ingredients and simple methods. It is such an easy, creamy, delicious and indulgent dessert to make by yourself.
- 9 ounces vegan dark chocolate / 72% cacao or higher
- 7 tablespoons light (or full – fat) canned coconut milk
- ½ tablespoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder, or finely ground hazelnuts (optional // for coating)
- Chop the chocolate and put it in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
- At the same time, heat coconut milk and put it in a bowl. Don’t boil it, just heat it.
- Immediately add coconut milk to chocolate and loosely cover with a cooking lid or towel to trap the heat in and do not touch for 5 minutes.
- Now you can add vanilla and stir (optional).
- It’s ready! Set the mixture in the refrigerator to chill uncovered for 2-3 hours, or until almost completely solid.
- Prepare a small dish of cocoa or cacao powder for rolling when you see it is solid.
- Take a tablespoon and scoop out small balls while forming with your hand the chocolate ball.
- Toss in cocoa or cacao powder to coat and shake off excess (or leave bare), then set on a parchment-lined serving dish.
- Now the best hour has come: You can enjoy your truffles immediately, or refrigerate for 1-2 hours or overnight. This allows them to set and firm up.
- Keep your truffles fresh by storing them in the refrigerator.
- The secret for optimum creaminess is to let them come to room temperature 10-15 minutes before eating.
