Vegan Chocolate Truffles

We've been hard at work in our little candy shop, making lots of delicious vegan chocolates.

Our first experimentation came about with truffles. We tried a few different bases, and after a very blind taste test..decided cashew was the way to go.

And voila!!! Here you have our vegan truffles!

These homemade, hand-dipped truffles consist of a smooth chocolate ganache center covered with our secret recipe soymilk chocolate to create a heavenly, rich treat. They will make you feel like royalty.

Each truffle is approximately 1" around by 1 1/4" tall.
There are 9 in a box.
*these truffles contain cashews

Now available for sale at our etsy shop:

Peanut Butter Cups

A box of eight homemade, (soy)milk chocolate peanut butter cups. These are like Reese's for grown ups. Rich, hand-poured chocolate surrounds a creamy, all natural, peanut butter center. Salty and sweet - the perfect combination! Each cup measures 1.5 inches in diameter.

Almond Butter Cups

These are just like our peanut butter cups, but with almond butter instead. We first decided to try them out for our roommate's birthday, since he is allergic to peanuts. These rich, creamy cups are a delicious treat for those with peanut allergies, or simply for those who want to try to a new twist on this classic candy. Each cup measures 1.5 inches in diameter.
