10 vegan truffle recipes!
Truffles are delicious little balls of goodness and perfect one-bite wonders. They are usually very luxurious, chocolatey and nutty, and it is almost impossible to have one. They are called truffles because they resemble the real truffle mushrooms found underground.
These sweet truffles, however, make great after-dinner treats, and packing a box full of them makes for a charming and welcome gift. You don’t have to stick to the traditional chocolate ganache recipe. As is often the case with vegan cooking and baking, you can get creative and create your own delicious versions in the kitchen.
Check out these imaginative OGP truffle-inspired recipes for divine candy you can serve at your holiday party, give as lovely homemade gifts, or just for yourself!
