Vegan Dark Chocolate & Almonds Truffles

Chocolate truffles are bite-sized chocolate confectionery made traditionally with chocolate and warm cream. Yes chocolate ganache coated with melted chocolate, cocoa powder or chopped toasted nuts are fondly called as chocolate truffles. Shaped usually as spherical, conical or curved shape, these chilled chocolate cream are just prefect to enjoy during Christmas. Not to forget that, truffles are must in our Christmas dinner table as these chocolate confectionery makes a fabulous dessert after a festive meal. Truffles, this chocolate treats got their name as they ressembles as much like the edible fungus which is called as truffles. Varieties of truffles do exists, my favourite is always French chocolate truffles which is made with fresh cream and chocolate, once chilled, they are rolled in cocoa or nut powder.
