Meatless Monday: Vegan Truffles

Dark Chocolate Vegan Truffles

With the holidays upon us, treats galore lie in wait, some good, some not, all less than healthy. Minimize those mistakes by eating healthier versions of some of your favorites, including these simple, vegan dark chocolate truffles!

  • Raw pecans, cashews, macadamia nuts, cocoa, sea salt, pitted dates, nutmeg, dark chocolate
  • In a food processor, pulse all ingredients (except dark chocolate) until clumping and able to be formed. Ingredients should be added according to taste -- the dates help it all stick together, so those can be added liberally.
  • While preparing the truffle filling, melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler, or, more simply, in a glass bowl over boiling water.
  • Once the truffles are formed and the chocolate is melted, dip each truffle into the melted chocolate, then place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Let cool and then enjoy!
