  • 2 3.5 oz chocolate bars vegan dark chocolate without dairy
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream just the extra thick cream and not the really watery part.
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup creamy nut or seed butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract see notes
  • cocoa powder for rolling


  1. In a double boiler, place all the ingredients except the cocoa powder into a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water and melt until completely melted and combined. 

  2. Place in fridge uncovered until it hardens, about 1-2 hours.

  3. Using a spoon, scoop out a small amount of truffle ganache and roll into a ball. Roll truffles in cocoa powder and place in a dish.

Recipe Notes

Keep truffles cool. If they get too warm they will melt.

When rolling them, it helps if the ganache is still pretty cool. To cold and they will be a little harder to roll, but if they are too warm they may melt a little to fast. Still works and still tastes yummy.
