To make the “chocolate dough” the process consists of sifting cocoa into the coconut milk, mixing, and repeating until a thick chocolate-like dough is created. If the base is too loose in density, it will not hold its shape into a ball. Instead, it will weigh down into a glob. You don’t want that!

Description

2-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Truffles are gluten-free, dairy-free, and easy-to-make! The secret ingredient to these decadent treats is sweetened condensed coconut milk. Plus, no baking required!


Scale

Ingredients

  1. 3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp sweetened condensed coconut milk
  2. 2 cups cocoa powder plus additional for coating the truffles

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, add the sweetened condensed coconut milk and sift in the chocolate, about 1/2 cup at a time.
  2. Mix well until the cocoa is fully emerged into the condensed coconut milk. In the beginning, the cocoa powder wants to resist mixing in. Keep stirring, it will fully mix in!
  3. By this point, the batter is still liquidy. Keep sifting in and mixing in all of the cocoa powder until a thick chocolate like dough forms (know that the chocolate will not truly act as a dough and separate completely from the bowl, this is just a description to explain how thick the batter needs to be.
  4. When ready, cover the bowl and place it into the fridge for a minimum of two hours or even up to 3 days.
  5. Once chilled, grab the chocolate batter and roll about 1/2 tablespoon or so into your palms and roll it into a ball. Lastly , coat the truffles in cocoa powder until  fully coated.
  6. Once all the truffles are fully coated with cocoa powder, place them back into the fridge for another hour.
  7. When ready serve them at dinner parties or to any guest you want to impress.

Enjoy!

 


Notes

If the dough/batter is not dense enough, simply continue to add more cocoa powder until you are confident that the balls will hold their  shape.
