No-bake treats are great for times when you need to whip up something sweet, but don’t have lots of time (or ingredients) to spare. These caramel truffles are slightly different from traditional smooth, chocolatey truffles. Instead, they’re crunchy and not overly sweet. They make a great snack and the recipe can also be modified to be vegan-friendly. Best of all, they’re made with only three ingredients, and there is no refrigeration step. You start by making a caramel with butter and sugar, then mixing it with puffed rice. Form balls from the mixture and they are ready to be enjoyed!


To make these truffles vegan, use coconut oil instead of butter.

To prevent the puffed rice mixture from sticking, you can oil your hands with coconut oil before forming it into balls.

How to Store Caramel Truffles

Store the truffles in a cake tin (or wrapped tightly in foil) for up to a week.

For chocolatey truffles, dip the puffed rice balls into melted balls and place them on a tray. Place the tray in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
