Halloween is coming up…. and that means candy and chocolate in overload!
Typically it is candy you eat and want… but who can say no to chocolate cake? Of course… i am just using Halloween as an excuse to make these because they are so amazing. And also great to have in the freezer and ready to heat for when you get that chocolate craving… or maybe if you have friends or family over.
These are also the best way to impress anti-vegans or those who are sceptiacal to vegan food. Then whip these together and impress them with some chocolaty goodness!
If you are looking for some candy ideas then i have several homemade candy recipes you can try:
In the future i need to try making some vegan twix or vegan mars!
If you have the ingredients at home then make these asap! You can half the recipe to make less, or double the recipe if you are having a party!!!
They work great to freeze in… so you have something chocolatey ready when you need some!!!
This recipe is definitely my go to when i want to bake something sweet or when baking to impress or give away to others!!!
If you have some nuts, coconut shreds or chili at home… you can always those to the mix!!
1tbsp vanilla sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
100g vegan margarine, melted
100ml vegan cream, cooking or baking(not whipped)
Pinch of salt
* extras, nuts, coconut, chili powder, espresso, nut butter
*muffin/cupcake forms – the best is to use reusable ones. Preferably, use sturdier forms as otherwise the mixture will spread out when baking.
Preheat oven to 180c
Begin by melting the margarine.
In the mean time mix together the flour, sugar, cacao, baking powder and pinch of salt. Make sure it is fully mixed and no clumps!
Once the margarine is melted pour over the dry mix along with 100ml plantbased cream. Mix until it all comes together.
Pour into individual forms. Fill about 3/4 of the way.
Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes.
They will still be a little loose in the middle, but my recommendation is to allow them to cool in the fridge or freezer so that they get fudgy!!
Either eat warm, after cooling a little or eat when cold and fudgy!!!
These are the perfect dessert to throw together for any occasion!!!
Note, you can try making this in one long form but i can’t guarantee the results and the baking time may differ.
