Salted Caramel Truffles – Raw, vegan and impossibly good.

Salted Caramel Truffles - Raw & Vegan

I had no idea when I chose ‘Heavenly Holiday Truffles’ as the theme of the December Sweet Adventures Blog Hop that I would become obsessed with turning EVERY FLAVOUR EVER into a truffle.


A google-machine search on ‘truffle’ renders the expected chocolate versions, but the same search on Pinterest reveals the most stunning variations you could ever imagine and sends the imagination into overdrive.

No doubt the purists will shout and stamp their feet, insisting that truffles should only consist of dark chocolate melted in cream, rolled and dunked in more chocolate or dusted with cocoa powder.

They may allow slight variations for the addition of a complementary flavour or a dash of alcohol — Cointreau and orange zest, Frangelico and a few hazelnuts, rum and coconut, Chambord and raspberry jam, brandy, chilli, mint, almond, ginger — but pumpkin or choc chip cookie or red velvet would send them into a tizzy.

However I’ve never been one to follow the rules.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else has come up with this month for SABH — traditional chocolate or off the wall magic — no doubt I’ll want to make them all!

Oh, yeah, when I made these I divided the base mixture in half and made another version (with photos that are so much better than in this post) dressed up with ginger and cocoa for Christmas.

    Yum! You just can’t beat salted caramel. :)

    I’m not quite sure if my recipe this month technically falls under ‘truffle’! I had the idea as a result of your theme, but if it’s not truffley enough, I’ll pull out of the hop.

    I’m afraid mine aren’t strictly truffles… (not round in shape)I thought this might be okay because of the fat skinny elvis truffles… if that’s not okay, I can try something else instead.

    JJ these photos are beautiful so I’ll look forward to the others and you’ve totally sold me on salted caramel. For the first time ever an idea popped into my head the second I saw the theme. Looking forward to sharing it later in the week!
