VEGAN DARK CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

VEGAN DARK CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

Luckily, this recipe uses Nomad’s 72% Dark Chocolate Buttons, which are sourced from the finest cacao on the planet. Smooth and creamy these truffles are – to the surprise of many – free of dairy, gluten, and soy, making them the perfect vegan chocolate dessert.
