Great base with endless possibilities
Just made these and love 'em! Tried several coatings, and my fave by far is coconut sugar - adds a little texture without losing the truffle idea. Tried mixing in a wee bit (SMIDGE) of almond oil after making half as directed, and oooh that was nice. Well, "as directed" except had to chill a few minutes before shaping into balls for some reason, started out making a gooey mess but 10 minutes in the fridge was perfect.
Hope to experiment with orange oil, peppermint oil, rum or bourbon next. Thanks for this brilliant, versatile recipe!
Is there a substitute for the apple cider vinegar? I'm making these non-vegan by the way :)
Can you put liquor in these truffles?
Can you put a small amount of liquor (for flavor) in these truffles without affecting the consistency?
I adore this recipe. It's easy, tastes amazing, and is well loved by plenty of my non-vegan friends even. The only bad thing I could say about this recipe is that it's difficult to stop eating them! xx
Hi Mattie. I was wondering what I could use instead of the 4 oz. unsweetened baker's chocolate, 100% cacao, since where I live, in India, it isn't available. All you get here thats vegan is chocolate compound, and honestly, I have no idea what the heck that is!! :0)
How long will these keep? My wedding is in two weeks and I want to make a huge batch to put in thank you bags for my guests but I'd like to make them the weekend before. Would they keep for a week in the refrigerator?
These truffles are heavenly! They're simple, yet so decadent.
At what point does the vanilla get added?
