Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and maybe you forgot to pick up a box of chocolates or perhaps you just want to make your sweetie or friends something delicious to celebrate. We have the perfect recipe for you: vegan truffles! These tasty treats will make a great and unique Valentine’s as well as just because. We have put together a basic recipe for the truffles, but adding different flavorings and toppings will really personalize these romantic chocolates.

Vegan Romantic Truffles

  • 1 8oz Container of Vegan Cream Cheese (we recommend Follow Your Heart)
  • 2 Cups Organic Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Cups Vegan Chocolate Chips
Flavor Ideas
  • Vanilla Bean Extract
  • Hazelnut Extract
  • Raspberry Flavoring
  • Peanut Butter
  • Almond Flavoring
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Peppermint

Possible Toppings

  • Coconut Shavings
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Crushed nuts (almonds, peanuts etc)
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Crushed Mint Candy

In a mixing bowl, whip the vegan cream cheese and powdered sugar and set aside. In a double boiler, stovetop or microwave melt the chocolate chips until smooth. Add the chocolate chips to the cream cheese mixture and blend until smooth. You may want to add more chocolate depending on your preference. If you are making a multitude of flavors, you should set aside different amounts in smaller bowls. Add in the desired flavor such as raspberry, peanut butter, or cayenne pepper. Mix the flavoring in and refrigerate for one hour. If you are making basic chocolate truffles, refrigerate for one hour right after mixing in the melted chocolate.

Once refrigerated, roll into small balls. For simple truffles roll in either cocoa powder or powdered sugar and set aside. For more exciting toppings, such as crushed nuts, candies, salt, or cinnamon also roll and set aside. We think this recipe works best with a number of different flavors or toppings. That way you can make your own unique box of vegan chocolates!
