Ingredients for easy vegan chocolate truffles

Here's what you'll need:

Step-by-step vegan truffle recipe

  1. Begin by placing the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl.
  2. Heat the coconut milk until it's simmering, then pour it over the chocolate chips.
  3. Let the mixture sit for about five minutes.
  4. Stir until the chocolate is fully melted and the mixture is smooth.
  5. Add the vanilla extract and sea salt, then stir again.
  6. Place the mixture in the fridge for about two hours, or until it's firm enough to shape.
  7. Once the mixture is firm, use a spoon or a small ice cream scoop to portion out the truffles. Roll each one between your palms to create a round shape.
  8. Roll the truffles in the cocoa powder (or any other coating you prefer) until they're fully covered.
  9. Store the truffles in an airtight container in the fridge until you're ready to serve them. They can also be frozen for future use.
