Can I use regular cream cheese in these cake truffles?
Of course! Use whatever cream cheese YOU prefer, dairy free or otherwise. It is simply for binding and flavor!
Is chocolate dairy free?
It is a common misconception that chocolate is not normally dairy free.
The reality is that most often, it IS!
Milk chocolate is the only variety that consistently contains dairy, but the vast majority do not.
My favorite dark chocolate chips that are also fair trade are:
- The one I get most often for the best price in ‘regular’ grocery stores: Guittard. I prefer the red bag.
- Also low carb: Lily’s Sweet Stevia Sweetened
- Equal Exchange
Additional no bake gluten free dairy free desserts:
- These vegan no bake cookies are loaded with gluten free oats!
- My gluten free cookie pops are fun AND delish!
- These dairy free pumpkin cheesecakes are spectacular!
- This no bake dairy free vanilla cheesecake looks amazing!

Easy Cake Truffles
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the cookies to make cookie crumbs.
Add in the cream cheese and process to combine.
Dollop or roll any size balls and place on a Silpat or piece of wax paper.
When firm, melt your chocolate.
Place chopped chocolate and coconut oil in liquid measuring cup. Place in microwave and start with one minute, and adding 15-30 second increments as necessary.
When the chocolate is about half melted, you know you're done. There should still be chunks of solid chocolate (see above picture), and as you continue to stir the mixture, it continues to melt - OUT OF THE MICROWAVE. Do not heat too hot, or the chocolate will seize.
Dip each ball into chocolate, stab with a skewer, drip the excess off, and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
Harden in the fridge or freezer!
