Vegan-Friendly Chocolate Truffles Recipe

Vegan-Friendly Chocolate Truffles Recipe


  • 200g dark chocolate (ensure it's vegan-friendly)
  • 200ml water
  • Cocoa powder for dusting


  1. Prepare the Chocolate:

    • Break the dark chocolate into small pieces to facilitate even melting.
    • Use a heatproof bowl to melt the chocolate. You can do this by placing the bowl over a pot of simmering water (double boiler) or by using short bursts in the microwave. Stir frequently to ensure smooth melting.
  2. Create the Ganache:

    • Once the chocolate is melted, gradually add the water while continuously stirring. This process creates a stable emulsion, forming a smooth ganache.
  3. Emulsify the Mixture:

    • Continue stirring the mixture until the water is fully incorporated into the chocolate. The emulsification process is crucial for achieving the right texture in your truffles.
  4. Chill the Ganache:

    • Allow the ganache to cool slightly before placing it in the refrigerator. Let it chill for at least 2-3 hours or until it's firm enough to handle.
  5. Shape the Truffles:

    • Once the ganache has set, use a spoon or a melon baller to scoop out portions and roll them into small, bite-sized balls. Work quickly as the warmth of your hands can soften the truffles.
  6. Dusting with Cocoa Powder:

    • Roll each truffle in cocoa powder, ensuring an even coating. This step adds a touch of elegance and enhances the flavor.
  7. Chill Again (Optional):

    • If the truffles have softened during shaping, place them back in the refrigerator for a short time to firm up.
  8. Serve and Enjoy:

    • Your vegan-friendly chocolate truffles are ready to be enjoyed! Arrange them on a plate or in a decorative box for a delightful treat.

This two-ingredient recipe showcases the magic of chocolate and water, creating a vegan indulgence that's both simple and delectable. Enjoy the rich, velvety taste of these homemade truffles!
