Salted Caramel Truffles

Salted Caramel Truffles
Truffles at home… Yes, it is possible. You know, I told that I will try to eat and share healthier recipes, add more raw foods and You see that is not happening! Am I failing? No, I still eat loads of greens and hope You do so, but honestly I am lacking for ideas now about raw food recipes. Haven’t got a dehydrator so that is limiting me or is it just an excuse? Anyways, will try my best once I will come back from my holiday mode. I have a week off soon and cannot wait for that! Time will be spent with my hubby and doggy so must be relaxing and worries free holiday in a bed.

Because of my holiday mode mood I feel that I need treats. Actually screaming for chocolate. Probably because I watched a tutorial on youtube how to photograph food and sample was truffles. That was it, nothing more important than how to make it at home. Quickly checked my notes and found one simple but tasty recipe for truffles. Old as world so needed to be veganised, and emergency pop up in the shop but sky is not the limit for us!

Salted Caramel Truffles

Original recipe includes double cream and milk chocolate, so wasn’t too hard to adapt it into vegan friendly recipe. Even if some people look sceptical into all these recipe transformations here we have an amazing proof of quality in vegan cuisine! Gooey and creamy rich chocolate balls covered in good quality cocoa powder and a hint of salted caramel feels like a cherry on top, like the highest range of best ever desserts ever tried… Honestly, couldn’t stop eat it until I finished, not alone – sharing with my other half. And it felt like not really enough. But if I eat as much as I see I would probably explode!!! Wanna try? Here is the recipe

Salted Caramel Truffles
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American, British, French, Vegan, worldwide
Servings: 10 truffles
Author: Mrs. Fork
Ingredients
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup dark chocolate (make sure it is vegan)
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut cream from milk can
  • 1 tsp salted caramel extract (optional)
  • some cocoa powder for coating and dusting
Instructions
  1. Firstly, chop chocolate into really small pieces and place in a dry heat proof bowl. Place that bowl into a pot with water to float and turn on the heat. You will see how chocolate melting - slowly, but patience is the key here. *

  2. Once chocolate is fully melted in a separate bowl heat up coconut milk just to simmering and quickly pour into melted chocolate.

  3. Here You need to leave everything for destiny. Just cover the pot with a lid to keep all heat inside and leave it for 5 minutes. After that start stirring: gently and slowly. Add salted caramel extract if You want, otherwise keep stirring until mass looks smooth and neat. 

  4. If Your bowl is still floating in the pot with water it is time to take it out and let cool down to room temperature before putting mass into refrigerator.

  5. Divide mixture into spoonfuls onto a wide plate and put it all in a fridge for at least half an hour. We want the truffle mass to be more solid and easy to handle, so we can roll them up into nice balls and cover in cocoa powder. Alternatively, You can leave all mixture in the bowl and just keep checking when consistency is good (not earlier than 1hour) **

  6. Finally, roll the balls and cover in cocoa powder.

Recipe Notes

*as fine You chop Your chocolate as quicker process it will be. You can even grate whole chocolate bar for really quick melting.

**I was so naughty, so I used vegan hot chocolate powder instead of cocoa powder, but it is just an another option 😉

In conclusion I want to ask You make these truffles for people who not really understand what is vegan diet and see it as a constant pain and restriction. Just make a little present to show how easy, how cheap and how much healthier it is to eat plant based! And maybe You will help Your friend to start a vegan lifestyle! Every little counts 😉
