These are absolutely luscious and not that hard to make as – believe it or not – you won’t have to temper chocolate to make them. The silicone mold is also optional, you can use mini-muffin tins, although I am not sure how easy or tricky it might be to get the bonbons out.
VEGAN CASHEW BUTTER BONBONS
(inspired by Vegan Treats)
115g cacao butter
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons creamy cashew butter
gold luster powder to decorate (optional)
If using gold luster powder, brush the inside of the molds with it. Reserve.
Melt the cocoa butter in the microwave using very low power. As soon as it melts, stop heating it. Stir the cocoa powder and maple syrup. Pour the mixture in the molds filling it halfway. Place the mold in the fridge for about 15 minutes to set.
Remove from the fridge, spoon a small amount of cashew butter in the center of each cavity, then pour the remaining chocolate on top to cover completely the cashew butter. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before un-molding the bonbons. For added safety, I like to place the mold in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Store in the fridge for about 10 days. They stay well at room temperature for at least a couple of hours.

Comments: This is really super easy and the results go beyond the effort by a long shot. I do not have a link for the mold which I’ve had for a long time, but many different shapes and sizes will work, just do a search online. They will stay good in the fridge for a long time, but won’t melt at room temperature, I actually left them sitting over a counter for a couple of days and nothing bad happened. The best option if you make them is to store them in the fridge and bring them to room temperature for one hour or so before indulging.
