recipe notes and tips

  • Melt your chocolate in the microwave, in 20 sec increments, this stops the chocolate from burning.
  • You want to use ripe avocados for these Vegan Truffles.
  • If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe. Ripe avocados may have a darker color but color can vary so it is best to go by feel as well.
  • If you have one, use a melon baller to scoop chocolate into balls.
  • You can use vegan chocolate bars instead of chips, just make sure to break them up and weigh them.
  • You only want the avocado meat, not the skins!
  • Have fun with rolling the truffles in different toppings.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
  • Best served within 24 hours.

toppings and coatings for vegan truffles

These delicious truffles are great on their own but you can totally mix things up with the addition of different coatings! Here’s some ideas:

  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • A sprinkle of sea salt/salt flakes
  • Sprinkle of chili flakes
  • Sprinkles
  • Crushed nuts – pistachios would be lovely!
  • Cocoa powder
  • Minced crystalized ginger

How long do fresh Chocolate Truffles last?

Typically most fresh truffles when stored at room temperature, should last about 1-2 weeks. If you store truffles in the refrigerator they last for up to 3 months. Since avocados were used in this Vegan chocolate truffles recipe, I would say they taste best the first 24 hours and can be stored in the fridge for up to one week. 

Should I refrigerate Chocolate Truffles?

Store bought truffles are usually ok to be stored at room temperature away from sunlight. If your truffles are homemade with fresh ingredients like cream and in our case with this vegan chocolate ruffles recipe its best to store in an airtight container and store in the fridge.
