Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup Cashew Cream
  • 2 cups vegan chocolate chips 12 ounces
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 1/2 medium orange
  • truffles topping (shredded coconut cocoa powder, etc...)

Instructions

  1. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir the cashew cream and chocolate chips. Place bowl over a simmering pan of hot water. Stir until cream and chips are combined and melted, about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and whisk in the rest of the ingredients (maple syrup, vanilla extract and orange zest). Place mixing bowl with chocolate mixture in frig for about 1 hour, until firm.
  3. Remove the chocolate mixture from the frig. Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon measure, spoon out the mixture and form balls (that look like truffles). Place the balls on the baking sheet about an inch apart (don't let them touch). Try using wet hands if your hands start to get sticky. Once all the truffles are completed, put them back into the frig again until firm, about an hour. Take them out of the frig and roll in your preferred topping and enjoy!
