Vegan Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients
3/4 Cup Raw Almonds
3/4 Cup Almond Milk
1 lb Bittersweet Chocolate
Cocoa Powder, Powdered Sugar, Chopped Toasted Almonds, etc. (for coating)

Put almonds and cold water in a blender and blend at high speed for 1-2 minutes. Scrape the sides down and blend again until the mixture is the consistency of heavy cream.

Meanwhile, in a double boiler heat the chocolate until it's all melted. Cool the chocolate until it's comfortable to work with and fold in the almond cream. Cool in the fridge for 2 hours (to set). Take out a small ball, roll in desired coating and store in fridge/freezer.

Hint/Tip: Any type of nut may be used in this recipe (cashew, almond, peanut, etc.) and any flavor of vegan milk (soy, almond, rice, etc. or even plain water) may be substituted.

Maple Bacon Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients
1/2 Pound Bacon (any variety)
1/2 Brandy
1 1/2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Cups Semisweet Chocolate - chopped
1 teaspoon Maple Flavoring

For Topping
1/4 Cup Turbinado Sugar
1/4 Cup Reserved Bacon - Diced and Cooked

Directions
Cook some bacon in a skillet until well cooked, but not burnt. Place on some paper towels and press, being sure to soak out all extra grease. Dice into small pieces.

Place diced bacon and cream into small, heavy saucepot over medium heat and bring just to slight simmer. Add chocolate and whisk until well combined. Pour into a bowl and cover.

Place mixture in refrigerator for four hours or until it is firm enough to shape into balls.  

Scoop out a heaping teaspoonful of chocolate mixture and roll it into a ball between your palms, lay out on parchment covered sheetpan and freeze while coating is melting. Drop chilled truffles one at a time into chocolate coating mixture. Fish out with a large fork, tapping the sides of the bowl with the handle of the fork to remove as much excess chocolate as possible. Immediately dress the top with a little of the bacon topping. Chill flat on parchment and move to paper cups once they harden. Best enjoyed at room temperature but keep refrigerated otherwise.

Topping: Heat together reserved bacon bits with turbinado sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small heavy bottom saucepan. Boil gently until mixture is carmel colored and thick. Pour onto sheetpan lined with parchment paper and spread out to cool.
When completely cool, cover with another piece of parchment and bash with a rolling pin to pulverize. Sprinkle liberally onto truffles while chocolate is still wet for maximum adhesion and crunch factor.
