Vegan Truffles

vegan trufflesThe chocolate truffle is traditionally made with a chocolate ganache.


  • 10 ounces vegan chocolate
  • 4 ounces tofu, pureed
  • 4 ounces soy milk
  • 1/2 tbsp soy margarine
  • 1/2 tbsp glucose syrup

For the ganache, chop the chocolate into small pieces and, using either the microwave or stove top, soften (melt) in a 2-quart mixing bowl. Puree the tofu in a food processor until it is very smooth and set aside. No lumps should be visible.

Bring soy milk to a gentle boil and add it to the chocolate, gently folding until well-combined.

Fold in the tofu puree, soy margarine, and glucose syrup until well combined. The margarine should be completely melted and incorporated into the mixture. Feel free to dabble with the texture of the ganache by adjusting the ration of soy milk to chocolate. The more chocolate you use, the firmer your ganache.

Cover the surface of the ganache with plastic wrap and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. It can then be refrigerated overnight.

Form truffle balls from the ganache and coat with couverture or confectioners coating and colored sugar crystals.
