Vegan Matcha Dark Chocolate Truffles

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!

I kind of wish I talked like that on a regular basis. How much more fun would this blog be if that’s how I talked all the time?

But anyway, hi! We’re doing dessert today in the cutest four-ingredient package ever: truffles.

Truffles are one of those things that I don’t really think of making when I’m craving dessert. It’s usually cookies or brownies or literally any other sweet. Not truffles.

But every once in a while. Truffles seriously hit the spot.

Truffles are…just so so so easy to make. They’re rich, they melt in your mouth, and they’re full of chocolate.

Whenever you have a recipe that requires only four ingredients, one of them being chocolate, you know you’re about to get slapped in the mouth with full-on chocolate flavor.

I am very excited about this whole situation.

In the spirit of all-things St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, these truffles are green.

Truffles are typically not green. Instead, they’re covered with cute things like melted chocolate, coconut shavings, sprinkles, etc. But today: matcha (aka. green tea powder) is our coating of choice!

*pro tip: I found organic matcha for an insanely amazing price at HomeGoods*

When I first made these, I coated them in straight-up matcha. And I liberally coated each truffle in about an inch of matcha all around.

Huge (huge) mistake. They were bitter and funky and totally not what I was looking for.

Then I decided to mix the matcha with some powdered sugar, and then lightly coat the outside of each truffle. Ding ding ding! They still have that delicious matcha earthy taste…just less of it. And it’s just a bit sweeter, which works perfectly with that rich and creamy dark chocolate core.

And the texture! I can’t.

Enjoy, friends!

Prep: Yield: 10-12 trufflesTotal:

The richest truffles ever! Made with only four ingredients, and they're naturally gluten free and vegan. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day or any day!

You'll Need...

  • 3.5 oz. vegan dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 3.5 Tbsp. canned full-fat coconut milk*
  • 1 Tbsp. matcha
  • 1/2 - 1 Tbsp. powdered sugar**

Directions

  1. Add chopped chocolate and coconut milk into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then mix well. The mixture will start to seize - that's okay. Place bowl in the fridge to set until firm, about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix matcha and powdered sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. If the mixture is too firm to form into small balls with the warmth of your hands, stick the bowl back into the microwave for 5 seconds (no more).
  4. Scoop 1 tsp.+ amounts of chocolate into your hand and roll into a ball. Lightly roll each chocolate ball in your matcha mixture, and then set on a plate or a bowl to serve.

Additional Notes

*I used the full-fat coconut milk from Trader Joe's. It has two ingredients: coconut milk and water. The water really helps the truffle-making process.
**The sweetness depends on your taste. Add additional powdered sugar if the matcha mixture is too earthy for you.

    I’ve got to tell you that my father-in-law says that regularly (and both of his parents moved to the US from Switzerland…no Irish blood) and it gets OLD quickly!! But the truffles look great!

    Isn’t it weird that Homegoods has so many health foods? I was blown away last time I went and saw all kinds of supplements and powders for a fraction of what they cost at Whole Foods. Love that place, and I love these!

    Can’t wait to try these! Thank you for being simple and focused. I enjoy your blog because it stays focused on the food recipe you are speaking about and doesn’t get overly wordy. And yet your personality shines through and it feels personal as well. I’m loving the easy recipes and they come out amazing just as you describe.

    I have been wanting to make something with matcha for awhile now… it’s really taking off in popularity and I want to see what all the hype is about. This looks like a great recipe to try!

    Your pics look awesome BTW..

    Homegoods has so many treasures! I am embarrassed to admit how many food items I buy there. Teas, oils, vinegars, and dried fruits are some of my favs. Just bought a pretty cake stand there the other day too =)
