Chocolate Truffles {Vegan}

Chocolate Truffles {Vegan}

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you just need to have something and someone to share it with right?

Meh.

I have never been a fan of Valentine’s Day.

It just never has been something that I want to celebrate or was truly a big fan of.

I was blessed that for most of my life I had someone to spend it with, and now I have a Husband to share them ALL with.

It just isn’t something I am into.

I think it is fun to celebrate things, but at the same time I think you should always do nice things for those you love.

However, I DO love chocolate.

And since Valentine’s day is all about the chocolate I thought I would share this recipe with you.

Super easy chocolate truffles that are raw and vegan!

If you are in a pinch and you need to come up with something to make for your Valentine, these should be it.

Holy moly are they good!

I came across them on my random search of recipes that I do all the time and I really wanted to try them.

I love shaking up my ingredients to see how the differences.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups Medjool Dates, pitted,
  2. 1/2 cup dark chocolate (you can used dairy free to make it completely Vegan), chopped finely
  3. 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  4. 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 1/3 cup Organic Maple Syrup
  6. 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon, divided
  9. 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. If your dates are moist then use them as is, however if they are older or dry. Take them and soak them in hot water for about 10 minutes before you use them. It will help with consistency.
  2. Place the 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon into a bowl and mix together to dust the truffles when you are done.
  3. Take all your ingredients and place them into a food processor and blend together. The consistency should be sticky.
  4. Roll into 24 even truffles and roll into remaining dry ingredients.
  5. Place onto parchment paper and refrigerate or devour immediately.
Notes
  1. These are super rich and delicious, make sure you really do soak those dates though, it is going to make all the difference if your dates aren't moist already. Fresh dates tend to be much more chewy, gummy and moist they are.

  1. Haha, Im not a huge fan either…. buuut I’ll totally use it as an excuse to nibble on some chocolate. πŸ˜‰

  2. I am with you! We decided not to do anything for Valentines… except plan the move to San Diego. I’m sure there will also be chocolate. πŸ™‚

  3. I am not really into V-day too, but chocolate is always a good thing :-)) These look fantastic, Raven.

  4. Yeah, Valentine’s Day is cool and all, but maybe I just end up making these for me. πŸ˜‰ A little secret stash of truffles sounds like a good idea to me.

  5. I can’t believe how fudgy these are and that they’re vegan!!!

  6. From what you said these are extremely yummy! And I can’t wait to meet the mama of our puppy either! Love you Ravie <3

  7. You summed up my feelings about Valentine’s Day perfectly!! I’m not really into it either. Most fun is actually for the kids, and when we did homemade Valentines for school. But now they are too old (snif…) These truffles would make me feel better though!! πŸ˜‰

  8. mmmm….that looks heavenly!!!! I’d pop those like candies lol! Yummy pics, Ravien!
