Dairy Free Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Chocolate truffles in heart shaped cases

A gluten free and/or dairy free diet shouldn’t mean that you have to miss out on delicious treats - and we think that these vegan chocolate truffles prove just that. They’re indecently rich and far too more-ish! To limit your consumption of them, we advise popping them into some cute confectionary cases and sharing them with your better half on Valentine’s Day.

Gluten free and dairy free chocolate truffles

Makes approx. 30-35 truffles

 

Ingredients

300g / 10 ½ oz good-quality dark chocolate (dairy free)

200ml tinned coconut milk

1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Cocoa powder / icing sugar / desiccated coconut / chopped nuts, for decoration

 

Method

Finely chop your chocolate into shards and place these into a heatproof bowl. Add the coconut oil and set to one side.

In a saucepan, heat the coconut milk until it just comes to the boil. Remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate, then gently stir with a spatula until the chocolate has melted and a smooth ganache is formed.

Cover the lid of the bowl with clingfilm and transfer to the fridge - you’ll need to leave it for at least a few hours, and ideally overnight. This will allow the ganache to become firm so that it can be rolled and shaped.

When cooled and firmed, use a teaspoon to scoop out small portions of the ganache - roll these quickly and gently into balls. You can then choose to leave them plain, or can decorate in many ways - rolling in icing sugar, cocoa powder or desiccated coconut, for example. Chopped nuts are also a great option.

When finished, pop into small cases (optional) and store in the fridge. Eat and enjoy!
