Ingredients

For the truffles:

  • 200 g Dark chocolate (one that's at least 60%+ cocoa)
  • 100 ml Coconut milk (Full-fat works best)

To coat:

  • 200 g Vegan chocolate (white and/or dark)

(For pink chocolate)

  • Pink or red gel food colouring (I use PME)
  • 2 Teaspoons Coconut oil (per 100g white chocolate)

To decorate:

  • Vegan cake decorations of choice

Instructions

For the truffles:

  1. Melt the dark chocolate in a pot over a low heat. Once melted, remove it from the heat.

  2. In a separate pot, gently heat the coconut milk until small bubbles start to form at the sides. Be careful not to overdo it.

  3. Pour the coconut milk over the melted chocolate but do not mix yet. After a few minutes has passed, stir well to create a thick, sticky mixture.

  4. Place the truffle mix into a lined bowl or tub and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes. It should be firm but malleable.

  5. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of the mixture at a time and roll into balls. Alternatively, you can use a small cookie cutter to create heart shaped truffles.

For the coating:

  1. Melt the chocolate for the coating. If making pink chocolate, stir in the food gel and coconut oil to the white chocolate.

  2. Coat each truffle in either the dark, white or pink chocolate at whichever ratio you like.*

  3. Place each truffle onto a wire rack with parchment paper underneath and leave for 2 minutes to let any excess chocolate drip off. Then transfer them to Petit Four cases. 

  4. Add any desired decorations while the coating is still slightly wet (unless you're doing a chocolate drizzle, in which case you should let the coating dry first).

  5. Place back in the fridge until the coating has set and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • *If the coating is too thin, leave the chocolate to set then repeat the process as necessary.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
