Whiskey Truffles With Almond Praline [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Serves

20 truffles

Ingredients

For the praline

  • 100g brown sugar
  • 100g unpeeled almonds

For the truffles

  • 150ml soy cream
  • 250g dark chocolate (dairy-free), chopped
  • 1 tbsp Irish whiskey

Preparation

For the praline

  1. Put a sheet of baking parchment on a baking tray. Place the almonds and sugar in a non-stick saucepan over medium heart and let the sugar caramelise slowly. Do not stir the mixture, but swivel the pan around if you fear the sugar might burn, or lower the heat a tad. When the sugar has caramelised to a beautiful golden brown and covered the almonds, pour the mixture onto the baking parchment and let it cool.
  2. When it is cool and hard, pulse in the food processor until it becomes the texture of breadcrumbs. Store in a jar until you need it.

For the truffles

  1. Pour the cream in a saucepan over high heat When it starts to boil, take off the heat and throw in the chocolate pieces, pour in the whiskey, and stir with a wooden spoon until perfectly smooth. Pour into a bowl or shallow pie dish and let it set it in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  2. Roll the chocolate into little golf ball-sized truffles (about 20) and sprinkle over the praline. Let it cool again in the fridge and store in a box. Serve with coffee, hot whiskey or your favorite drink.

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

After turning vegan, I discovered a particular talent for baking delicious cruelty-free cakes and cookies. It was then that my friends named me ‘The Vegan Cookie Fairy’ and my blog was born. I find happiness in preparing and eating food that is good for my body and soul — but cats and yoga help, too.
