Let’s talk about chocolate. While some people don’t like chocolate (who are you, very sorry we can’t be friends), I am firmly planted in the ‘love it’ camp. Ever since I can remember, I’ve always gone for the full-on chocolate desserts while eating out or grabbing a dessert at a bakery. Needless to say, I’ve always sprung for the truffles at candy shops and was pumped to be making my own vegan truffles at home. I can distinctly remember picking out a slice of deep dark three-layer chocolate cake at a Barnes and Noble in college (yep, that’s where my friends and I hung out) and hearing one of my friends say ‘oh that’s too rich for me’. Um, say what now? That is not really a thing to me, so I have close to no concept of how something that had three kinds of chocolate in it was too rich for someone. It just seemed like more of a great thing in one slice of cake! I stand by that, regardless of how much of a sugar coma it may have put me into.
I’ve made truffles before, but these are just a little bit different. Instead of making them boozy, I went a totally different route and made them with cola! Just like this batch of brownies, they are just different enough to be interesting, but still chock full of chocolate goodness. These vegan truffles are a perfect mix of easy, creamy, and just a little bit different to keep you dipping back into the freezer for more. Did I mention that they are so stinking easy?! The waiting time is the hardest part, with the whole thing coming together in under 30 minutes and then chilling for a few hours until you can cut and serve them. I personally liked keeping the vegan truffles in the freezer when I was done so I could sneak into the kitchen for an after dinner treat, but they would keep perfectly fine in the fridge too.
Cheers to Tuesday! I’ve had a little bit of a whirlwind week with switching jobs and having lots of weekend plans, but it’s all been good! I hope to get back into more of a regular groove this week, so be ready for a smoothie recipe and more baking to come.
Perfectly sweet and easy vegan truffles, made with cola! Coconut milk makes these truffles smooth, creamy, and perfectly sweet with lots of dark chocolate.

- 2 cups dark chocolate
- Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, set aside.
- In a small saucepan, stir together the coconut milk, cola, and dark chocolate. When chocolate has melted, pour into the lined loaf pan and place in fridge.
