These Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles are made with only 4 simple ingredients and are super easy to make.
I like to try to give you a new St. Valentine’s Day recipe each year and this one is a slight variation of some other truffle recipes I’ve made over the past 6 years.
It’s very similar to my other Clean Eating Strawberry Fudge Truffles recipe where I used fresh and freeze-dried strawberries, my Clean Eating Vegan Raspberry Truffles recipe where I also used freeze-dried raspberries and this Raw Vegan Strawberry Creme Chocolate Truffles recipe using just fresh strawberries.
But this one is even easier.
These are made with just 4 ingredients that you probably already have on hand and one of my favorite flavor combinations: chocolate + strawberries. They have a sweet, chewy, strawberry center and are covered with melted chocolate. If you need them to be lectin-free, just use 69% cacao dark chocolate morsels instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Basically all you do is add a bag of freeze-dried strawberries + medjool dates to your food processor and process, roll them into a ball shape then dip them into melted chocolate. That’s it!
I like using freeze-dried fruit because you can just take a bag out the pantry whenever you need it and I’ve used it in these recipes: Gluten-Free Vegan Dried Blueberry Protein Energy Balls, Vegan Coconut and Mango Chocolate Cups, Raw Vegan Apricot and Date Protein Truffles, Raw Vegan No-Bake Cacao and Raspberry Mousse Cakes and Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Crispy Treat Squares.
