Vegan Chocolate Truffles with Sprinkles

You can't help but to think about candy, sweets, and chocolate when it's October.  Every store right now has huge bags of candy taunting you!  It's easy to walk on by though, since hardly any of it is vegan.  Even most of the candy that makes the "safe" list for vegans to eat for Halloween, in my opinion is still not vegan.  Most have sugar, which is bone charred, many use food dyes that are tested on animals.  That's right, this seemingly innocent ingredient is tested on animals.  The following food dyes are to be avoided.

Blue #2
Green # 3
Red #2 #3 #40
Yellow #5 #6

So, let's skip the candy isle completely people, vegan or not, all those chemicals should not be in our candy!  Who wants to eat candy anyways that has to be tested on animals?  No food should be eaten if it has to be tested for safety, period!

Let's make our own candy, and let's begin with creamy chocolatey truffles.


6 T organic raw cacao powder
2 t organic raw agave nectar
1 t pure organic vanilla extract
1/2 t sea salt 
1/2 cup organic coconut oil, melted 
Vegan sprinkles (I used the brand Let's Do Sprinkelz)


In a medium sized bowl, add cacao powder, agave, extract, salt, and melted coconut oil.  Mix thoroughly.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Scoop out the firm chocolate and roll into small balls with your hands.  You can now roll the truffles in the sprinkles.
