Vegan Chocolate Truffles

During quarantine, it is really easy to feel like every day is the same. One of the best ways to cope with boredom for me has always (and especially now) been spending time in the kitchen. These delicious vegan chocolate truffles are perfect as gifts to brighten up boring days for other people or to treat yourself. They work really well for storing (1-2 months in the freezer or a week in the fridge). They are rich, sweet, and chocolaty, and it is easy to experiment and invent lots of new flavors.
