A vegan valentine’s treat: dairy-free chocolate truffles recipe!

3 variations for you…

1. Simple dark chocolate base
2. DIY cocoa butter base
3. Whole foods date base

Most chocolate truffles use heavy cream to get that dense, soft center – so for this vegan chocolate truffles recipe we’ll use coconut milk. This creates the same creaminess, without the dairy.

Try the optional raspberry and maca for a flavor and nutritional sensation.

    Look amazing – need to get cacao butter to try though – might try a small taster with almond butter but all the other ingredients.

      That would be great Janet! Or try one of the other variations, the cocoa butter is just for the one version.
