Chocolate Peppermint Truffles (Vegan)

Chocolate Peppermint Truffles.  This time of year makes me think of chocolate.  So how about some chocolate peppermint truffles?  Truffles, cookies, brownies to name a few.  It seems like there are always sweet treats going around at parties.

I have been trying to come up with cleaner versions.  This chocolate peppermint truffle recipe is another one of those.  Only 4 ingredients and just a few minutes!


Chocolate Peppermint Truffles


I got the idea for these peppermint truffles after making my Chocolate Pistachio Truffles.  These healthy truffles are so good and they just melt in your mouth.

The best part?  They can literally be made in minutes!  I used to think truffles were hard to make, but this recipe proved me wrong.  It couldn’t be easier.

  1. Love this idea! I'm making these on Wednesday when I get home from my trip. Thanks for helping with my clean eating goals. My sister and I love your website!
  2. I want to try these so badly! My problem is no matter how many of your recipes I try with dates in the food processor, I can never get the paste consistency you describe. I just get smaller dices, or chunks. While it doesn't hurt the flavor (they taste delicious!), the texture is waaaay off and much more crumbly, obviously. What am I missing? Am I not processing them long enough? Help!
    1. Maybe your food processor isn't strong enough? Some aren't. You can try soaking the dates in water for 10 minutes prior to using them. That should help soften them up a bit.
      1. I was wondering if that was the's not terribly powerful :( The soaking may be just the trick! Thanks so much! I've really enjoyed finding your website and trying your recipes. My husband has a chronic GI problems and these recipes are treats that he can actually have and don't taste like cardboard. Thank you for all your hard work!
          1. I tried soaking the dates, with measured success. I now have a new, more powerful blender (Merry Christmas to me!) and after trying again, it was perfect!! I was so excited to get the fudgy, rich, cake texture, delicious! Thanks again.
  3. I haven't tried making truffles, and the thought of adding dates to the mix, well let's just say I'm speechless...and not in a bad way. ;) I love this recipe, it only has a few ingredients and it sounds delish. I can't wait to try this. xo kristin nicole
  4. I made these yesterday and they were amazing ! Thank you so much for the recipe. I use sunmaid dates and just add a few more as you suggest. Sometimes my mixture isn't moist enough to bind together so I just add a T. of water or so and it turns put perfect .
  5. Hi I was just wondering if these need to be stored in the fridge or if that's just a trick to make them firmer - haven't made them yet although I plan on doing so sometime this week. I ask because if they turn out as tasty as they sound (of which I have little doubt since I've made the pistachio truffles and they turned out awesome!) I might want to send them as gifts (holidays and such) to family & friends out of state. Thanks so much :)
    1. They do need to be refrigerated. Then again, I have never tried leaving them out? Maybe you could make a batch to experiment and see if they last outside the fridge. I would be interested in the answers.
  6. Made these last night with almond butter and sunmaid dates and they are so good! They remind me of the girl scout thin mints. Very delicious! I can see a Christmas goodie box forming from all your no bake bites....:) Thanks for the great recipes and keep up the good work!!
