  • 100ml plant-based milk (we used oat)
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
MPU 2

Method

  1. Put the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. Tip the milk, sugar and vanilla into a small saucepan, then bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring occasionally.

  2. Pour the hot milk mixture over the chocolate, leave to sit for 1 min, then stir until the chocolate has melted and the mix is smooth. Cover and chill for 4 hrs until set.

  3. Roll teaspoons of the mixture into balls using your hands, then transfer to a small baking tray or plate – you may like to wear gloves. You should have about 20 balls.

  4. Put the cocoa powder on a shallow plate, and roll the chilled truffles in it until well-coated, tapping off any excess, if needed. Chill until you’re ready to gift. Will keep in the fridge for up to four days.
