10 vegan truffle recipes!

Chocolate Caramel Truffles

Truffles are delicious scoops of goodness and the perfect one-bite wonders. They are usually very luxurious, chocolatey and nutty, and it is almost impossible to have just one. They are called truffles because they resemble the real fungus truffles found underground.

However, these sweet truffles make great after dinner treats, and packing a can full of them makes a lovely 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 conjure up your own delicious versions in the kitchen.

Check out these imaginative truffle-inspired recipes from OGP for divine sweets that you can serve at your Christmas party, give as a lovely homemade gift, or just have all to yourself!
