Just 3 ingredients and a little bit of your time… that’s all you need to make the most exquisite vegan Lavender Chocolate Truffles! All your chocolate cravings end here, I promise!
This is no empty promise. The loveliest chocolates can be made right in your kitchen. And truffles are the easiest to start with. There is just one ratio you need to keep in mind- 2 parts chocolate and 1 part cream. Since this recipe has only three ingredients, it’s important we use the best quality ones.
Nowadays, procuring excellent chocolate is not a difficult task. Most of the supermarkets and online stores carry wonderful brands, international as well as domestic. I particularly enjoy the vegan Indian brands in the market now. You can use any of your choice. The other ingredient here is cream. I just go with any of the known local brands. They work very well here. In this recipe though, I went dairy free with coconut cream. Thanks to all the infused lavender, there is no coconut flavour at all.
Dried lavender is a delight! Its distinctive, soft floral notes brighten up any confection, like in these Lavender & Lemon Madeleines and Lavender Scones. Its wonderful for making infused waters, tea, salad dressings, jellies, icecreams…and with chocolate, it works like a charm! You can buy it easily online and if you’re in Delhi/Gurgaon area, do look up Mittal Teas in Sundar Nagar. They keep a stock of this too.
You can play around with any flavouring of your choice. Add some coffee, chai masala, pumpkin spice, maybe even some peanut or almond butter. You can roll them in cocoa powder, ground almonds/hazelnuts/pistachios, dip them in chocolate or just eat them plain. They are rich, decadent and absolutely irresistible! Perfect as fuss-free dessert when entertaining or for gifting.
