Who doesn’t love Chocolate Truffles on Valentines Day?!? This is the best dairy-free and vegan Chocolate Truffle recipe out there. It tastes just like the traditional version. Trust me.
These truffles are one of the favorites at my Peace, Love, and Chocolate party. They are perfect for a romantic Valentines dinner, or… well… pretty much any day of the year.
I’m allergic to coconut, so you won’t find any recipes on the blog with coconut. It’s super thick and a life-saver for many of those who are dairy-free. Since regular dairy-free milk like almond, flax or cashew is too thin, it was almost impossible to recreate chocolate truffles. And then… I found dairy-free half and half. Be still my beating heart. I’m in love.
It’s totally optional, but by adding just a couple of drops of coffee (prepared) and some to the chocolate ganache, it brings an amazing depth of flavor. They taste professional. I’m not kidding.
There are a million variations of this recipe, between the chocolate you can use for the ganache and the types of chocolate to use for the coating. This version is very simple and very traditional and it will sing many songs in your mouth. No need to go fancy here. Basic is best.
