Vegan Chocolate Truffles

posted in Recipes by Helen @ 3:30 pm |

These go by many names. In our house we call them vegan rum balls, but I have also heard them called chocolate truffles.

For a gluten and sugar free rum ball idea I have also tried modifying the fruit and nut bite recipe. Instead of rinsing the fruit, just add 1-2 Tablespoons of rum to make the mixture moist.  Anyhow, back to the recipe at hand.  This recipe is very flexible and forgiving.  Just remember, it is easier to add more moisture than to remove it!


1 x 250g packet of vegan/vegetarian sweet biscuits

135ml of coconut cream (make sure you use coconut cream not coconut milk)

1 cup dessicated coconut

1/3 cup raisins (or you might like to used mixed dried fruit)

2 Tablespoons of dutch processed cocoa

1 Tablespoon rum

extra coconut for rolling


  1. Process the biscuits in a food processor until finely ground.
  2. Add the cocnut, raisins and cocoa and continue to process.
  3. Add the coconut cream and rum and process until a ball forms. This may take a little while but it will happen.
  4. Roll teaspoons of mixture to form a ball shape and roll in extra coconut. You could also roll them in cocoa or vanilla bean powder.
  5. Refrigerate

Makes approximately 30 (Depending on how many you eat while you are making them!)
