This delicious, healthy and somewhat sophisticated treat is not too sweet, making a great candy for adult palates. It may appeal to the younger crowd as well –my 10 year old ate a dozen of these and then packed more in his school lunch.
Along with their rich chocolate–prune flavor, these vegan truffles are packed with healthy antioxidants and quite nutritionally dense.
These tasty little truffles are based on a recipe called Prune Armagnac Truffles in Baking with Agave Nectar, by Ania Catalano. Her recipe has heavy cream and liqueur and looks absolutely divine.
I made these truffles liquor free (for the boys) and dairy free (for me) and swapped out a few other ingredients as well to create this vegan version. I hope you enjoy this little treat as much as my family has!
