Vegan truffles recipe ingredients

  • 1½ tbsp of raw cacao or cocoa powder (save a little more to dust your Valentines balls when they’re finished)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 whole almonds

How to make your truffles

Preparation: 20 mins

Put the prunes in a bowl. Cover them with boiling water and let them soak for twenty minutes until they’re soft.

Drain the prunes. Then place them in a food processor along with the ground almonds, cacao powder and a pinch of salt.

Blend the mixture until it has the consistency of a soft dough. Now transfer it from the processor onto a plate.

Divide the mixture into four. Carefully cut each whole almond into two. Encase each half almond with the mixture and roll into balls.

Dust with a little cacao powder and serve.
