Chai Spiced Chocolate Truffles {Vegan}

Chai Spiced Chocolate Truffles {Vegan}

I have very strict rules about Christmas stuff, and despite the fact that I’m seeing Christmas displays everywhere already, I think it’s still too early. My rule is always “not till after Remembrance Day” but honestly, in my house, nothing gets Christmas-ified until December. And depending how busy I am, sometimes not till mid-december!

Having said all of that, my thing is homemade gifts, and in order to make that happen, I have to start in advance. Starting in mid-December won’t cut it!

I have some ideas for what I’m going to make for Christmas gifts this year, but I won’t share them yet. I do always enjoy a good assortment of cookies and baked goods, though. Let’s just say you can never go wrong with that!

These Chai Spiced Chocolate Truffles would be a great option to add to your Christmas baking boxes this year. Or you can bring them with you to parties as a hostess gift, or put them out when guests come around.

They’re really easy to make, require no actual baking, and they keep for ages in the freezer.

While they may be super easy to make, the reality is, they still come across as really special, thanks to their warming spices and dense chocolateyness. You could also buy something fancy to roll them in, like edible gold dust for that extra special touch.

A quick note on sweetened condensed coconut or oat milks. This is a pretty new product that’s just recently arrived on the market. The one I used the most in the past (because it was the only one available!!) was one called Let’s Do Organic. I don’t actually love this one, it tends to separate, and it’s not great. Nature’s Charm has one that’s way better, and they’ve just launched a sweetened condensed oat milk, which is what I used to make these. I got mine at Plant X, but you can also get them on Amazon.

  • Hi Rebecca – sadly I cannot find the Nature’s Charm sweetened condensed oat milk on either PlantX or Amazon.ca. Can I sub coconut condensed milk?

    • I also saw some at Vegan Supply he other day, I can’t remember if you have one in Victoria?
      Anyway, it’s a relatively new product, so it can be hard to find. No reason why sweetened condensed coconut milk shouldn’t work just fine, but I prefer the Nature’s Charm one over the Let’s Do Organic one, which tends to separate. Good luck!

      • Thanks for the reply! Sadly we have no Vegan Supply in Victoria, so we make do with online ordering or bringing back goodies from the mainland. Last time it was Plant Balls from IKEA in a freezer pack 🙂
