Niki's Salted Vanoffee Hazelnut Truffles

vegan | gluten free

Here is a great a super simple truffle recipe that will astound you and your loved ones. This is if they get to try them at all :)

I couldn’t believe my luck when I searched a dairy-free alternative to making your own truffles. What’s more, I was even more delighted that minimal ingredients were involved with an incredibly easy method. I love the texture here, the smooth Salted Vanoffee Hazelnut truffle contrasts wonderfully with the lovely crisp dark chocolate casing, it has a lovely mild and clean taste, perfect for truffles.


Makes around 30 truffles

Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 1 hour (including chilling in the fridge)


For the filling:

3 tbsp organic coconut milk

2 bars Salted Vanoffee Hazelnut, broken into pieces 

1 bar Vanoffee, broken into pieces 


For the dark chocolate coating: 

2 bars Vanoffee Dark chocolate 
2 tbsp Cacao Butter, melted
20g chopped hazelnuts, or Raw Chocolate Mulberry Chips for decoration (optional) 


Step 1: Heat your coconut milk gently in a small saucepan and add the Vanoffee and Salted Vanoffee Hazelnut bars.

Step 2: Take your saucepan off the heat and whisk in gently until the truffle mixture has come together. Pour into your dish and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Step 3: Once the mixture has cooled completely, pop in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.

Step 4: Use a small spoon to roll out your truffle mixture. Melt the Vanoffee Dark. Roll the truffles in the melted chocolate and then in your coatings.

These little gems are soft on the inside and hard on the outside. They make the perfect present for Christmas!
