Accidentally Vegan: Whole Foods Dark Chocolate Truffles!
Oh yes, it is true!! These delightfully rich and creamy chocolate orbs from heaven are accidentally vegan! I couldn’t believe it when I checked the package and found that these Whole Foods truffles were made with coconut oil and dairy-free… a true box of vegan chocolate truffles! And since they’re labeled as organic, it means the sugar is vegan too.
These dark chocolate truffles make a great hostess gift or potluck treat when I’m responsible for bringing the dessert. And… because these are vegan, I get to enjoy them too! (Quick note: most European dark chocolate actually is dairy-free and Whole Foods brings these in from France!)
It seems like you can only get these at Whole Foods from September – January, so they are back in stock now. And they are worth the wait!
** Editor’s Note: last year the Whole Foods dark chocolate truffles were formulated without dairy. Check the ingredients on the package this year just to confirm it’s the same formulation.
