Vegan Maple Caramel Truffles

Chocolate-covered maple-flavored caramels anyone? Umm, yes please!

Being a Pennsylvania girl, I love my maple syrup. But it’s not just for pancakes, people! Ohh, no. Maple syrup is good on just about everything.

I’m like Elf. Maple syrup spaghetti? Why not.

Okay maybe that’s a little extreme, but give me a maple-flavored treat and I’ll be your friend for life.

Last night I needed a maple syrup fix. And what could be better than maple syrup covered in chocolate? Nothing (unless we’re talking peanut butter of course)! Thus, I whipped up a batch of these maple syrup caramel truffles. YUM!

Vegan Maple Caramel Truffles

(Makes about 8 truffles)

Maple Caramel Center:

  • 3 Tbsp. coconut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/3 tsp. maple extract
  • dash salt

Chocolate Coating:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (or agave)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder

Mix your caramel center ingredients. Roll into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Freeze the balls while you mix up the chocolate coating. For the chocolate, mix your wet ingredients and then stir in the cocoa powder. Roll the balls in the chocolate and store in the refrigerator! So delicious!

What’s your favorite dessert flavor – maple, peanut butter, or something else?
