I love scouring my favorite food blogs for inspiration to make new vegan goodies! PaleOMG is one of my favorite sites (no, it's not vegan, that's the whole concept behind "Veganizing"). And Juli is just plain awesome and silly as a person, so I love to follow her snapchat too (you get to see her cute little puppy, Jackson, too!).
I saw Juli post some Samoa Truffles this week and I was definitely saying O...M...G...!!!
I knew instantly this would be my "Veganizer Of The Week"!
Now, I have no idea how close this is to Juli's actual recipe because I don't have her cookbook, and therefore I have no idea how she makes her caramel sauce. But anywho...I made a vegan caramel (since most of them aren't) and I took a little liberty and added some chopped pecans to this recipe too - because well, pecans are delicious and I have an overstock right now because I forgot I had some and then bought more for another recipe I had made...you know how it goes.
These were as DEEEELICIOUS as they looked, if not more so.
So good in fact, that Fraser has already requested that I make a cake version of this for his birthday (which is still 2 months away).
I'm pretty sure we'll be making these for some Christmas parties this year too!
Makes 10-12 Truffles.
