Chocolate is happening!

You can’t have Valentine’s Day without it ❤

We have a mind blowing recipe for Valentine Truffles…and did I mention, they are vegan!

80 grams of 100 percent cacao (baking chocolate) I used Chocosoltraders Gratitude Cacao

50 grams raw sugar

Flavour Options:

  • peppermint or orange oil
  • vanilla essence or powder
  • cacao nibs
  • chili & cinnamon powder
  • dried fruits
  • maca
  • coconut
  • sea salt
  • orange or lemon zest

To flavour…just use  2-3 drops of the oils or a pinch of spices.

Method

  1. In a medium sized pot, bring water to a boil and place a glass bowl in pot.
  1. Add the chocolate to the glass bowl, reduce heat and slowly melt the chocolate.
  1. Add the raw sugar and mix until well blended. If you want a smooth texture, blitz the sugar in a food processor until the sugar is really fine before adding the sugar. I like the old school style of chocolate, with a bit of texture.
  1. Add the liquid chocolate mixture to your chosen mold, one spoonful at a time just until chocolate is level with the top of each opening.
  1. Top each truffle with your flavour of choice. Today I decided to do a variety of options: chili & cinnamon, orange, peppermint and a vanilla truffle.
  1. Allow to cool completely before removing truffles from the mold. I like to place mine in the fridge for at least 30 minutes while doing the cleanup. Remove from the fridge, turn mold upside down and give it a gentle tap to loosen truffles or simply remove each one manually.
  1. If you haven’t eaten all of the truffles, store them in an air tight container, away from heat and light.

Note: The chocolate will sweat if left in the fridge too long. If this happens gently wipe the water off with a towel.

Are you ready for the finished product?  Holy cow! Check these babies out!
