Dark Chocolate Peppermint Truffles: What Makes Them Healthy Inside?


These indulgent Vegan Dark Chocolate Peppermint Truffles are not only delicious, but healthy too! Blending a plant-based Coconut Cream with velvety vegan dark chocolate provides the perfect base for a delightfully creamy center. Then, an added hint of peppermint extract, a pinch of salt, and some cocoa powder bolsters the overall flavor and aroma. All of these wholesome ingredients come together to create a divinely delightful treat that’s as good for you as it is tasty!


Coconut Cream


Rich in healthy fats like lauric acid, coconut cream helps boost the immune system and even improves digestion. It has antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties that support good health.


Vegan Dark Chocolate


Dark vegan chocolate helps to reduce stress levels as it contains an ingredient called theobromine which has calming properties. All these great benefits make consuming vegan dark chocolate one of the best indulgences you can have!


Peppermint Extract


Peppermint has anti-inflammatory properties and can act as a pain reliever for those suffering from migraines or tension headaches. Additionally, peppermint may boost your energy levels due to its stimulatory effects and has even been used to help reduce respiratory infections like asthma or bronchitis.


Cocoa Powder


Studies have found that due to its powerful antioxidant properties, the cocoa powder may reduce inflammation in the body as well as protect the skin from sun damage. It can also reduce your risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Let's gather the ingredients!

  • ½ cup full-fat coconut cream
  • 9 ounces vegan dark chocolate finely chopped
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • cup dutch-processed cocoa powder


Let's Begin!

  • In a medium saucepan, heat the coconut cream over medium-low heat, just until the edges begin to simmer.
  • Immediately turn off the heat, then add the dark chocolate. Stir to combine until everything is smooth, creamy, and fully combined.
  • Once the mixture is smooth, transfer it to a medium bowl, then add peppermint extract and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine, then set uncovered in the fridge just until solidified but still pliable.
  • Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of the chocolate, then use your hands to gently shape the truffles. Set aside on a dish lined with parchment paper.
  • Repeat until all the truffles are scooped and shaped.
  • Set the cocoa powder on a large plate, then roll the truffles around until they are fully covered.
  • Serve immediately or store covered in the fridge for up to a week.
  • To serve, let them come to room temperature for maximum smooth creaminess.
  • Enjoy with family and friends!
