Chocolate Chili Truffles

You heard it right. Chili powder in your chocolate.

For those of you that don’t like to spice things up, read no further. For the rest of you, I have this delicious vegan chocolate truffle, that you just might find yourself addicted to, especially in the cold weather.

These chocolate chili truffles are perfect for a slightly spicy Valentine’s Day.

Chocolate Chili Truffles
Serves: 10-12 truffles
  1. In a large saucepan, melt chocolate over very low heat
  2. Stir in agave, chili, almond extract and coconut milk
  3. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until mixture is about the consistency of a thick frosting
  4. Scoop mixture into balls and set aside on a parchment paper lined plate or baking sheet
  5. Combine the almonds and cacao powder in a shallow bowl
  6. Roll the truffle balls in the almond-cacao mixture
  7. Serve

I based these spicy little truffles on a recipe from The Spice House, though theirs had several ingredients that I shy away from.  You can try this with any of your favorite fun flavor combinations.

Store on a plate on the counter for up to 5 days.
