What is your idea of celebrating Valentine day? Going for a nice romantic dinner? Having that special glass of wine while relaxing by a fireplace?  Maybe simply playing a fun game with family and friends?

We decided to offer a great recipe on homemade vegan truffle chocolates to top it all off!  These are soo delicious and easy to make! Very few ingredients are also required.

Here it is:

6 ounces of organic dark bittersweet chocolate (60% cocoa)

2/3 cup organic coconut cream (I use Wilderness family brand)

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ cup assorted coatings such as toasted coconut; grated chocolate; finely chopped pistachios; finely chopped toasted almonds

-Finely chop chocolate with food chopper; place in small batter bowl. Add coconut cream. Microwave, uncovered, on high 30 seconds; stir until smooth. If necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds or until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Cover; and put in refrigerator until mixture is firm enough to scoop (at least 3 hours or overnight). Using small scoop, scoop truffles unto serving platter.

-Prepare assorted coatings and place into serving bowls. Roll truffles into


Enjoy! Also, don’t forget to wear your cute pair of Vandana Rose shoes 

Happy Valentines from Colourful Grass!
