nipples of venus chocolate truffles

Oh sweet apollo, I made these tonight as Christmas presents and tried one and oh...these are GOOD. MAKE EM.

Recipe and picture link under the cut!


500 g icing sugar
2 cups of cocoa
70 g of melted copha/vegetable fat
1 generous tablespoon of vanilla essence
1 cup of cool water mixed with 2 tablespoons of eggbinder and allowed to sit for ten minutes and whisked to froth
extra cocoa for rolling
a smidgin of vegan marg (like a teaspoon)
another 4 tablespoons icing sugar
a tablespoon of cool water
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Sift and combine cocoa and icing sugar, pour in egg-binder/water mixture and combine well. Add copha and combine. Consistency should be of a dough/fondant type mix.

Turn out onto a surface dusted with icing sugar. Knead for five minutes, dusting more if it sticks. Dust surface with cocoa and roll into small balls (about a teaspoon each).

Place on plate and allow to harden in fridge. Combine marg, extra icing sugar, vanilla and water to make a paste. Shovel into the corner of a small glad-bag/zip-lock sammich bag, and cut off a tiny bit of the tip of the corner (about a matchstick head's worth). You have an icing bag! Now squeeze 'nipples' onto each truffle, cover again (making sure not to smoosh your nips) and refrigerate overnight.

Now sit back and enjoy watching your omni friends proclaim "Ommigod, I-can't-believe-it's-not-torture".
