Decadent Vegan Truffles

Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 6 2-truffle servings


  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 lb bittersweet chocolate
  • Cocoa powder unsweetened
  • Raw coconut


  • Place cashews and cold water in a blender. Blend at high speed for 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the inside walls of the blender and blend again until the mixture is the consistency of heavy cream.
  • Meanwhile, in a double boiler, heat the chocolate until it’s all melted.
  • Cool the chocolate about 6 minutes and fold in the cashew cream making sure not to stir too fast or you’ll create bubbles.
  • Cover and cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours to set. (Caution: do not exceed 2 hours, or the mixture is too hard to work with.)
  • Using a teaspoon, scoop out a small ball and roll in cocoa powder or unsweetened coconut. (You can use toasted coconut also if you like.)
  • Repeat until entire mixture has been formed into balls.



  • Use organic, fair trade chocolate and cocoa powder if available.
