5-Minute Microwave Chocolate Truffles

5-Minute Microwave Chocolate Truffles

For some reason, I’d always been under the impression that preparing homemade truffles is difficult and time-consuming. Plus, most recipes call for heavy cream, which I can’t eat as a vegan. But there are ways to make them using canned coconut milk, and so I decided to stop being lazy and try my hand at it this Thanksgiving. It made a lovely chocolate sauce, but never firmed up enough for truffles. So, out of curiosity and necessity, I tried a second experiment with almond milk, expecting it to fail completely. Stir, then heat until melted, in 10-second intervals (chocolate burns quickly), stirring after each. Now add extract if desired. Freeze at least 40 minutes, or until chocolate is hard enough to scoop out into truffle shapes with a mini cookie scoop. (Alternatively, you can freeze in candy molds.) If using the stove, heat chocolate on low until melted, stirring frequently, then proceed with the recipe as written above. I store my truffles in the freezer until just before serving. Roll in cocoa before serving, if desired. On special occasions sometimes, my sister and I would get a box of Godiva truffles, and our favorite part was looking through the little book that came with the box, to see all the flavors. Then we’d take a very small bite out of every single truffle before deciding which one to choose. I always liked the raspberry jelly ones best. Most of the truffles I see have nuts as a base, so it’s nice to see a recipe without them. I think the Ferrero Rocher hazelnut truffles are the best I’ve tasted! Haha I might have to bring another CCK recipe to my book club this month! I am totally going to try these. I never liked those boxed candies because there was always a few nasty flavors that I would end up throwing out.
