Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles

These Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles are so creamy and decadent you won’t be able to get enough! They are perfect for dinner parties and the upcoming holiday season.

I have been craving something a little different so I decided to whip up some of these Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles! I went with the hazelnut center because I absolutely love this combination. As a child, one of my favorite chocolates was the Ferrero Rocher and that’s all I could think about while making these. The Ferrero Rocher had this wonderful creaminess inside with the crunch of the hazelnut inside and it was just pure heaven. I am happy to say that I achieved that with this recipe!

What’s even better is that this recipe is not complicated to make. It has minimal ingredients with the hardest part being waiting patiently wait for them to set in the fridge before gobbling them all up! Keep reading and ill show you how.

How to Make Vegan Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles

In order to make these truffles you will need only 6 ingredients (vegan chocolate chips, coconut oi, full fat coconut milk, vanilla extract, hazelnuts and cocoa powder). Start by refrigerating the coconut milk for a few hours allowing the fat to accumulate at the top (this is the only portion you will use). Next, simply melt together the chocolate chips with the coconut oil. Pour this mixture in with the coconut milk and stir well until all the lumps are gone. Let it set in the fridge for approximately 1 hour before scooping out individual truffle balls. To insert the hazelnut center, all you need to do is press it in with your finger and smooth the truffle back out. Finally, on a small plate, roll the truffles in the cocoa powder and then refrigerate for 1 hour.

Note: Using roasted hazelnuts makes for a better crunch but you can also use raw.
