This recipe has been a long time coming because white chocolate can be quite difficult to make vegan.
But, with a little inventiveness and lots of testing, I cracked the code!
Friends, allow me to introduce your new BFF: Vegan White Chocolate Truffles!
Originally, I was testing this recipe with a base of cocoa butter, coconut cream, and cornstarch, but it turned out either like pudding or rock hard and crumbly. Back to the drawing board.
In the midst of all of this, I was snacking on macadamia nuts – serendipitous, eh? – and got the idea to use them as a base with cocoa butter! Now, we’re making progress.
This recipe is simple, requiring just 5 ingredients to make!
The method is easy, too: Blend macadamia nuts and coconut into a butter, add remaining ingredients, and mix. Then refrigerate and roll into truffles!
The mixture of the nuts with the coconut creates the perfect creamy base, while cocoa butter adds that rich chocolate flavor and hardens them up so they form truffles! Swoon!
I hope you all LOVE these truffles!
Easy to make
& Super dreamy
These would make the perfect vegan-friendly treats for special occasions like Valentine’s Day and beyond! They would also make a lovely gift and are the perfect dessert to make, pop in the fridge or freezer, and enjoy throughout the week!
And, if you’re wary of purchasing cocoa butter, don’t be! You’ll have plenty leftover to also try my White Chocolate Lemon Cheesecake, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cheesecake, Tahini-Stuffed Dates (aka Tahini Bombs), and Easy Vegan Chocolate!
