Vegan Dark Chocolate Truffles

Just in time for the #Mimouna.

The Mimouna was originally celebrated by mostly Jewish people from north African heritage, but by now, most of the Jewish people I know love to join in the festivities! ❤️
Who doesn't love a celebration right? 

The Mimouna dinner party also celebrates the end of the Passover holiday, and with it, the Chametz limitations... Bread everywhere! 
Usually there is a large variety of bite-sized, and very sweet candy treats served at the Mimouna. 
This truffle recipe is my little contribution to your arsenal of sweets.
They are pretty and sweet, and very easy to make.

This is a very good recipe for your left over cake or cookies ***

Dark chocolate
I can write so many good things about dark chocolate, my personal opinion is very clear if you already know me :) I love it.
Now, as objectively as I can, I will write a little bit of important info about this amazing material
  • It is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet
  • 100 grams of Dark chocolate contains 11 grams of fiber 
  • Dark chocolate is rich in other nutrients, for example ,iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese
  •  It has been proven that consuming quality dark chocolate is linked to a reduction of heart disease

So, chocolate is amazing! Just make sure to choose quality dark chocolate and eat it in moderation!


  • Topping options: Cocoa nibs, chopped hazelnuts,  vegan white/milk/dark chocolate covered, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut flakes, rainbow sprinkles and pretty much whatever you can think of...
  • Additions: I really like some crunch in my truffle so I like to add chopped nuts into the truffle mixture as well. Whole roasted hazelnut in the center of the truffle. Another option is broken down cookies.

Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking... 

Recipe's song:

This recipe is so easy, it is practically a recipe for a lazy day The only song that fits is my son's absolutely favorite song (he is 3 ). The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars

Tools: Ingredients: Decoration:
  1. Place the the milk or coconut cream in a saucepan and heat it up, on the stove. Add the salt, butter, vanilla, and the sugar (if using sugar).
  2. Place the chopped up dark chocolate in the heat resistance bowl.
  3. When the milk is on the verge of boiling, pour it on top of the chopped chocolate and let them all sit for 1 minutes. 
  4. Sift the cocoa powder on top of the mixture and whisk well, until the whole mixture is combined.
  5. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours to stabilize.
  6. Prepare a flat plate or tray with baking paper to place the balls on.
  7. Remove from the fridge, create small balls with the scooping spoon, or your hands.
  8. Place the balls in the fridge while preparing to decorate.
  9. Melt the white chocolate with the oil and stir until smooth.
  10. Prepare the cocoa nibs/ chopped hazelnuts or any other topping you choose, in a small bowl for each topping.
  11. Take the balls out of the fridge, drop each ball in the white chocolate, roll it around so it is covered from all sides. Remove the ball carefully using a small fork to place under the ball. Let the excess white chocolate drop back to the bowl. Touching only the bottom side of the ball, carefully remove it to a prepared baking paper or plate.
  12. Either place on a baking paper (if not adding additional toppings), or drop into the prepared toppings and cover well. Insert the balls to the toppings bowl while the chocolate is still somewhat sticky, but not liquid.
  13. Set in the refrigerator to cool down.
  14. Enjoy!

I don't normally add any sugar to my truffles because I like the rich flavor of the dark chocolate. I recommend trying the recipe without the sugar, and adding after tasting (as long as the mixture is still warm, the sugar will still dissolve).

** To create the marbleized color, I dropped 2 drops of oil based food coloring to the white chocolate and using a tooth pick, I swirled it once or twice. don't over swirl it as the color will become more unified with every swirl and with every truffle you drop in. over swirling will cause you to lose the marble effect so you will get a solid color.

*** This is a great recipe for any left over or stale cookies that you have but don't want to throw out!. Just crumble them up and add the the truffle mixture.

**** The truffles freeze really well (without the toppings) and can be kept in the freezer in a sealed container for up to 6 weeks.
