Today, December 1st, marks the 2nd year since I hit publish on post #1 on this site. So what better way to celebrate a 2-year anniversary than with chocolate truffles? And not just any plain chocolate truffles: Dark Chocolate Mint Truffles!

I’ve mentioned before (in my dark chocolate mint avocado pudding recipe and online, everywhere!) that chocolate + mint is one of my favourite flavour combos.
This time of year is the perfect time to use this combo in your baking and treat-making (but it shouldn’t be reserved for only this time of year, chocolate mint is always a good idea!)
Dark chocolate mint truffles are very easy to make, easier than you may think. All it takes is 4 simple ingredients, and a little bit of patience while things chill in the fridge.
The result is melt-in-your-mouth, chocolaty mint decadence. They’re perfect for when you have guests over or for giving as gifts.
Who wouldn’t be happy to open up a box and see these waiting to be devoured?
I mentioned at the top that this is the 2nd anniversary for this website. It definitely doesn’t feel like 2 years. It doesn’t seem that long ago that I wrote the 1st anniversary post.
Time really does fly when you’re having fun. I’ve had such a great time sharing recipes, working on my photography, and most of all, receiving messages from all of you.
- The mom who wrote in to say that her son has food allergies and has not had a waffle in years but now he can again, thanks to my vegan gluten free waffle recipe.
- Or the bed and breakfast owner who messaged to say that she made my apple raisin cinnamon rolls for vegan guests and that they were eaten in record time.
- Or the reader who was newly diagnosed with celiac disease who had been trying to find a gluten-free pancake recipe that actually tasted good and she did, thanks to my recipe!
These messages make me so happy.
When I started this website, I never imagined that it would have that sort of impact.
It was mostly an outlet for me, something that I had wanted to do for a long time.
This website is not huge, I don’t post as often as I’d like, and I don’t work on it full time, but to see that what I’m sharing has made a difference for at least one person and that I have such a nice group of engaged readers who take in and enjoy what I put out? Wow.
Thank you to all of you who send me lovely messages, those who share my content online, and those who always come back to see what’s new. Thank you.
So shall we talk a little more about these dark chocolate mint truffles before you get to the recipe?
What kind of chocolate should I use?
I use vegan dark/semi-sweet chocolate chips. Most high quality dark chocolate chips are vegan but check the ingredients to be sure. Here in Canada, try President’s Choice (my favourite and what I used in this recipe), Enjoy Life, or Kirkland Signature.
In the US, you can use Enjoy Life, Kirkland, or check Whole Foods, or Trader Joe’s. (If using vegan chocolate is not necessary for you, any good quality dark chocolate chips will do.)
