- If you want to keep these vegan, then there is no substitution for sweetened condensed coconut milk, sorry.
- The truffles that I don’t roll in cocoa powder, I like to prinkle those with flaked sea salt.
Serve: Keep the truffles in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.
Store: You can keep the truffles in an airtight container for 1 month in the refrigerator.
Freeze: Place the truffles in a single layer separated by layers of parchment paper in a freezer-safe container and freeze for 6 months.

Despite their name, chocolate truffles do not contain any truffles in them. Instead, they get their name because they look like truffle mushrooms.
Yes, these vegan chocolate truffles are gluten-free.
The following are some of my favorite vegan coatings: flake sea salt, good quality cocoa powder, chopped and toasted nuts like hazelnuts, almonds, pecans, and pine nuts. Make sure the nuts are toasted, because they add SO much flavor!

Shop for the ingredients beforehand. When you shop ahead, you are less likely to swap out ingredients for what you don’t have, thus creating a complete recipe fail!

Now let’s make some decadent vegan chocolate truffles!
- 1 can of sweetened condensed coconut milk that’s 3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp
- 2 cups cocoa powder plus additional for coating the truffles
- Flake salt optional
- In a large mixing bowl, add the sweetened condensed coconut milk.
- Sift in the cocoa powder, about 1/2 cup at a time. Mix well until the cocoa fully emerges into the condensed coconut milk. In the beginning, the cocoa powder wants to resist mixing in. Keep stirring, it will fully mix in! A densely thick mixture should be the final result.
- When ready, cover the bowl and place it into the fridge for a minimum of two hours or even up to 3 days.
- Once chilled, grab the chocolate and roll about 1/2 tablespoon or so into your palms and roll it into a ball. Lastly, sprinkle each truffle with flake salt right before giving it a dusting of cocoa powder.
- Once all the truffles are fully coated with cocoa powder, place them back into the fridge until ready to serve to guests.
