Naturally Colored Speckled Egg Cake

I couldn’t find a recipe for speckled robin egg truffles or speckled egg cake with natural food coloring. But after making natural blue icing with red cabbage and baking soda, I thought maybe I could use that to coat the truffle eggs – and it worked! Yay! 😀

At first I thought I’d make speckled egg cake, but then I thought speckled robin egg truffles would be even cuter! 😉 So here’s my recipe for all-natural speckled blue robin egg chocolate truffles.

Ingredients:

 

 

Speckled Blue Robin Egg Chocolate Truffles

 

Homemade Vegan Truffles

You can either make vegan hazelnut chocolate truffles or vegan adzuki bean chocolate truffles. It works with both. But don’t dip the vegan chocolate truffles in melted chocolate before you coat them with natural blue icing – it’s easier that way.

Make icing with powdered sugar and some boiling water (don’t use lemon juice because red cabbage dye is ph-sensitive!). Using a fork, coat the vegan truffles with icing and let them dry for about an hour. Now color the icing with two or three drops homemade natural blue food coloring. If you like you can flavor the icing with one drop of peppermint essential oil for chocolate mint truffles. Using a fork, coat the vegan truffles with the natural baby blue icing. Let the blue robin egg truffles dry for some hours or overnight.

Make Chocolate Speckles

Dip a clean toothbrush or brush into melted chocolate and dab the chocolate onto the blue Easter truffles.

I tried to use the same technique which I used for my naturally dyed speckled Easter eggs but that didn’t work with chocolate.
