Vegan Truffles


  • 8 ounces vegan cream cheese
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Almond bark to coat, chopped nuts, shredded coconut and flavored liqueur (optional)


  1. Blend vegan cream cheese and powdered sugar in a food processor, slowly adding the sugar to the cream cheese.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in pot on the stove and add the melted chips to the cream cheese mixture, blending until it's all mixed in. If you want, you can add a tablespoon or more of flavored liqueur to the mixture and blend a bit longer.
  3. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for about an 1 1/2 - 2 hours
  4. Roll the mixture with your hands into little balls.
  5. Roll the balls into the topping of your choice (chopped nuts, shredded coconut, etc). You can also melt some more chocolate chips or almond bark and dip the truffles in and refrigerate to make a "hard" coat over them.
  6. Place and store in refrigerator until ready to be devoured.

Hi there. I was surprised to find my photo of vegan truffles that I published on my blog in 2009 published on your blog without my knowledge. I am happy that you are promoting vegan food on your blog, but I would appreciate it if you could link to the original post on my blog so that I get the credit for the photo. The post is here: Note that the recipe I used for the truffles in the photo is cashew nut based, so is not even the same recipe that you have posted here.
