I made vegan truffles! The basic recipe is 90ml coconut milk to 225g dark chocolate, heated together, then refrigerated, then rolled into balls. You can't really taste the coconut milk at all.  I added mint creams to some and rolled them in crushed candy canes; hid vegan marshmallows in the middle of some, then coated them in white chocolate and sprayed with edible glitter; rolled some in coconut flakes; and coated the rest in "milk" chocolate and piped over some stripes of white chocolate.

Her tipi is also a hit but it lacks structural integrity so collapses fairly often. I think I need to add some interfacing and maybe some more bamboo sticks in the base.   #catsofinstagram
