As a kid who spent a good chunk of her formative years in Ohio, we honed our buckeye making skills verrrry early on. Pretty sure it was a staple in every child’s Home Ec. class starting in 2nd grade.
In any case, I’ve always had a soft spot for decadent balls of chocolatey awesomeness. Avoiding dairy made it somewhat impossible to indulge. And then, vegan baking took the world by storm and solved every single problem I’d ever had and then some.
The results? Some of the most delicious flavor combinations on the planet. I would like to try my hand (and devour) each and every one of these. Yes, including the ones that have chickpeas and avocado in them. Yep. I totally know I’m weird.
After I finish round two of the pumpkin truffles (round 1 was kind of a delicious mistake), I’m working my way through these:
- Homemade Vegan Rolos via Fork and Beans
I loved Rolos as a kid. Loved. So it’s no surprise that these bad boys caught my eye first. I’m also super excited to try my hand at the vegan caramel recipe, as I’ve had a bit of a love-hate relationship with it in the past (i.e.—it never works).
- Avocado Chocolate Truffles via Honey & Fig
This sounds like little balls of chocamole. Which, HELLO. Sounds amazing. I think they would be fantastic rolled in chocolate sprinkles (or jimmies) like the picture shows. I also think they would be even more fantastic dipped in chocolate. Because chocolate.
- Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Truffles via Minimalist Baker
Salted caramel, peanut butter, and chocolate? Shut. The. Front. Door. I seriously want to run to the store and buy dates just so I can make these now. I don’t care if The Babe is napping (or not). These are a definite must make.
- Flourless Cookie Dough Truffles via My Whole Food Life
Cookie dough is a welcomed treat in my world, particularly when said cookie dough is dairy free. I also think that because this one contains chickpeas, it should be considered a health food, and therefor does not carry any guilt with eating them. Just saying.
- Vegan Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles via Minimalist Baker
So, uh. Remember when I was flipping out about the salted caramel peanut butter truffles (also by Minimalist Baker)? Yeah…I hadn’t discovered these yet. This seriously sounds like my idea of heaven in food form. I am confident that goosebumps will appear on my arms after that first bite. I am also confident that I will never ever share these with anyone.
What are some of your favorite truffle recipes? I’d love to know what your favorite flavor combinations are.
