Recipe Variations

Chocolate Coated: If you love chocolate but aren't a fan of the cocoa powder-dusted truffles, you can dip them in your favorite vegan melted chocolate instead.  You could even sprinkle a little cocoa powder on top with the chocolate is still wet. 

Fruit Topping: Use different freeze dried fruits to make strawberry or raspberry truffles. You can also top the finished truffles with some extra freeze dried fruit for a pretty topping. 

Nutty Version: Add chopped pecans or almonds to either the center of your truffle before rolling it, or add them directly to the truffle mixture before you chill it. You could also add some nut butter to the center of your truffles cashew butter, almond butter, and peanut butter all work great.

Coconut: You could also roll these chocolate balls in coconut flakes if you love coconut

Tips & Tricks

  • If you don't have a double boiler, you can use a saucepan and any heat-proof mixing bowl to make your own double boiler to melt the chopped chocolate. Just make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water. Or you could also microwave the chocolate 10 seconds at a time stirring between intervals. Make sure that you stir the chocolate often while it is melting so that it doesn't scorch. 
  • The best way to add the blueberries to the center is by scooping a small indent in the chocolate, placing the blueberries in it, and scooping around, turning the chocolate over until you have a round truffle. 
  • Don't skimp on the chill time for the chocolate truffle mixture, you want to make sure that your vegan truffles harden completely before you shape them. If the mixture is to sticky you will not be able to get smooth truffles. 
  •  If you roll them too soon, they may still be a bit soft which will make rolling and shaping difficult. 
  • Don't forget to include the wild blueberries as they add a natural sweetness that pairs perfectly with dark chocolate. 
  • For this recipe, I recommend using high quality chocolate balls for this simple recipe.  
  • If you plan to dip these in chocolate, I recommend that you had ¼ teaspoon of coconut oil to the chocolate so that it is stable for dipping. Don't forget to let the excess chocolate drip off before you add it to your baking sheet
