Decadent Dairy-Free Chocolate Truffles (Vegan, Gluten-Free)


Thanks to Jackie at The Vegan Diet blog who sought out this recipe from the Vegetarian Times:

Serves 10 (makes about 30 truffles)


  • 6 oz. high-quality dark chocolate (60% cocoa), finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnut, almond or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts


Place chocolate, oil and 1/3 cup water in microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high in microwave 1 minute. Stir; heat 1 minute more, or until chocolate has melted. Whisk until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill 6 hours, or overnight. Place cocoa and nuts on separate plates. Shape truffle mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls into small, 3/4-inch balls. Roll in cocoa or chopped nuts. Chill until ready to serve. (66 calories per truffle)
