The Easiest Chocolate Truffle Recipe Ever
If you’ve ever bought those drool-worthy cocoa truffles from Trader Joe’s during the holiday season, you know how addicting they can be. The only problem is that if you can’t eat dairy like me, then you’re out of luck with most cocoa dusted, ganache-based truffles. That changes now with these babes!
Instead of using heavy cream like your typical chocolate ganache, I use coconut cream, which adds a subtle sweetness and creaminess to the truffle. I used super dark 85% cocoa, but feel free to use a higher or lower percentage of cocoa-based on your preference! These make an awesome holiday gift or dessert to hoard to yourself.
