Vegan chocolate truffles


Ok so I'm on a vegan kick with these last two posts huh? I saw these over at rawmazing and knew I had to give them a go! I had some agave from wholesome sweeteners still kicking around, so this seemed like the perfect thing to try it on! These are so simple and seriously delicious. You can mix them up any which way depending on people's tastes.

I mixed mine up a bit (come on who's really surprised) but went with the basic ratios of the recipe :)

Dried Cherry Chocolate Truffles
found and adapted from rawmazing

mix the following together in a bowl until smooth
1 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
1/4 cup agave

Scoop out small balls of the mixture and flatten into round discs.
Wrap disc around
30 dried cherries or 30 nuts or both

Roll in shredded coconut to coat the truffles

Refrigerate until firm

chow!!!

This is a perfect no bake, super quick option... aka I made it to bring to John's parents when we had to be there in less than 30 minutes (no time to bake up something tasty so this was a perfect option!)

What's your go to super quick recipe when you need to bring something to a party that starts in less than 30 minutes :)

i'm liking the vegan recipes, can't think of anything in less than 30 min...hmmm, may need to think about it & come back.

I definitely have to make these. I love that it calls for Cashew butter.

These are fantastic.

Don't miss the $50 coffee giveaway over on my blog.

I wish I would've read this recipe on Sunday morning! I skipped the church picnic because I forgot to make something! I'll definately keep this recipe on hand in case of emergency and because I LOVE truffles! :)

Those look great! I always think hummus or bean dip is a quick and easy thing to bring to a party. As long as you use canned beans, it should whip up pretty fast.

These look lovely.

I always take caprese skewers. Quick, simple and delicious.

Jenny said...

girl these recipes have got to stop -- you've got me craving chocolate at 9 o'clock in the morning!

just kidding.. keep the recipes coming please :)

These are great- I've been meaning to try something similar but with dates. Need to go back and find it...

John's parents must love you :)

Fruit salad! Boring but delicious. And even gives you time to go to the store to grab fruit if you don't have enough on hand.

Fabulous! I believe I've got all of the ingredients and will make them for an afternoon snack right away! I especially like the ones with dried cherries inside, yum!

Mags said...

Those look really tasty Steph. If I have to bring something and I only have 30 minutes, it's usually a six pack and a bag of pretzels bought on the way there. ;)

Omg these look incredible--I'm going to have to give them a try for sure!

Wow, I've been away and I come back to these! Delicious. Somehow raw foods always make me think I'm being healthy. Somehow I suspect these are not :)

Shannon said...

wow, these look like a fantastic, quick, delicious treat :)

So easy and so yummy! I love them!
You made me laugh yesterday - that parsley floating around in my soup is really Kale. That would be a lot of parsley!

Sophie said...

Cashew butter sounds like an ingredient that should be in my kitchen! These look decadent and so pretty! They'd be a nice treat for a holiday party.

Justin said...

i'm drooling over these... i guess i need to try agave butter?

I love that you made another blogger's food:) I am still planning on making those pumpkin donuts you made - but putting them into pumpkin molds instead for my son...I'll let you know how it goes...or everyone if they go well:)

Anne said...

Wow, these look incredible! I love how the ingredients list is so short, too :D
