Vegan Cookie Dough Truffles

These truffles are such a treat. Something that you just want to eat 5 in a sitting treat. Or more, you know, if you're feeling wild 😜Seriously though these cooke dough truffles are super tasty and super vegan. I always feel like such a winner when I make tasty vegan treats, not that there's anything too complicated to it, but just that I've succeeded again in proving that vegan doesn't equal boring!

Vegan Cookie Dough Truffles

I first made cookie dough truffles years ago, when I wasn't vegan. I used condensed milk and all sorts of milk chocolate, but veganising (we're totally making that a word) foods is so easy now as there's an abundance of vegan alternatives out there. I opt for dark chocolate, however you could also use dairy free milk or white chocolate if that's what you fancy!

During my venture into cookie dough truffles years ago, I made the mistake of using self raising flour. I don't know quite what went wrong, but when I'd left the dough to chill and started trying to form it into balls and coat them in chocolate, the self raising flour started to, well, RISE! The truffles were exploding and just an all round mess! So my top tip for this recipe, use plain flour!!

This recipe is a little time consuming, so make sure you have set aside part of your day to make these truffles, or enlist a helpful pair of hands to assist you in the process - you can pay them in truffles if you're feeling nice!

  1. Could this be made without the golden syrup? Is there something that could replace that? This looks so yummy!!

    1. Hey - you could try maple syrup or honey which should work! Although maple syrup is runnier so might not need as much :) Hope you enjoy them!
