The rich flavors will melt in your mouth. These vegan, grain free, gluten free truffles will impress a crowd, especially when you find out how simple they are to make.
How to Make
Like most of my recipes, it’s as easy as throwing all of your ingredients into the food processor. You’ll need almonds, dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, and sweetened condensed coconut milk. That’s it.
Blend until there is still some gritty texture left to the batter. Then, throw the batter into the refrigerator for 20-30-minutes to cool prior to rolling into ping-pong size truffles.
I took each truffle and rolled them through some extra coconut flakes for an extra festive look. You can also dust them in the cocoa powder, or try out both finishing touches!
Keep the truffles in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.
This recipe makes ~18 ping pong size truffles.
