Vegan Chocolate & Coconut Truffles // bananabloom.com

My sister decided to becomeΒ vegan about a year ago. As a vegan you follow a diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds etc. In other words, no dairy or meat. When she visited recently from New York City, I made sure to whip up some vegan treats for her. These coconut truffles were a hit, they’reΒ easy to make and can be varied by rolling in different toppings.

I used a 70 percent dark chocolate from Divine Chocolate that had just a hint of mango and coconut.
