A simple and delicious 3-ingredient vegan chocolate truffle recipe that will rock your world. All you need are dates, cacao powder, and a topping of your choice—that’s it!
We know you love simple, no-cook recipes that take minutes to prepare, and this one checks all of the boxes. The first time we made these was for Valentine’s Day a few years back, and we’ve been making them ever since. These truffles have been such a huge hit with our friends and family that we can’t wait for you to try them, too!
Medjool dates, cacao powder, and topping(s) of your choice, that’s it! The dates should be soft and gooey for this recipe so if yours are not, simply soak them in warm water for 15 minutes, drain them and they should be good to go.
We like to coat our truffles with freeze-dried raspberry powder, crumbled pistachios, and cacao powder, but the possibilities are endless! Think—coconut shreds, peanuts, almonds, and the list goes on and on.
Over the next few days, we will be releasing more simple dessert recipes that require just 3 ingredients or less, and take just a few minutes to whip up! Who else is as excited as we are?
Here is a throwback photo for ya from 2016! This recipe was originally included in our Valentine’s Day Menu in 2016, before Chris was a part of Sweet Simple Vegan and had his own blog. You can check out our full menu here.
Looking for more healthy desserts? We’ve got you covered, check these out:
If your dates are not fresh (soft and gooey), soak them in warm water for 15 minutes and then drain.
Place the dates and the cacao powder into a food processor and run until it forms a uniform dough.
Using a small cookie scooper or a tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop the dough and roll them into small balls. Continue until you have rolled out all of the dough.
Roll the balls in coatings of your choice. We used cacao powder, dehydrated raspberry powder and ground pistachios. Enjoy!
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. These will firm up in the refrigerator and are best served the day of, but if you are going to store them, just be sure to let them sit out for at least 30 minutes so that they soften up.
