Ingredients

  • 100g/3oz dark chocolate, suitable for vegans (NB you can use half and half vegan ‘milk’ and dark chocolate¬† for a less intense flavour – eg Moo Free milk chocolate alternative is available from large branches of supermarkets such as Tesco and Waitrose)
  • 1 tub vegan single cream, eg Oatly or Alpro (some large supermarkets or health food shops, eg Holland & Barrett)
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • 1 can vegan squirty cream, eg Whiptop (large Tesco) or Soyatoo Soya Spray Cream (health food shops). Cartons of Soyatoo rice, coconut and soya whipping cream also available from health food shops
  • 4 HobNobs or own-brand plain oaty biscuits. Gingernuts are also nice and usually vegan
  • 8 small ramekins or heart shaped foil tins (available from specialist cook shops)
  • Instructions

    1. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in a small glass mixing bowl over a pan of simmering water on the hob. Mix with a wooden spoon.

    2. When the chocolate has all melted, remove from heat and mix in the brandy and cream.

    3. Meanwhile, place the biscuits in a small plastic bag and crush them into crumbs using a rolling pin.

    4. Put 1 tbsp of biscuit crumbs into the bottom of each pot and tap so they distribute evenly across the bottom.

    5. Divide the chocolate mixture between all your containers, and then put them in the fridge to cool and solidify.

    6. When you’re ready to serve, squirt little flowers on top of each heart or pot

    7. Serve with some raspberry or fruit coulis if desired.

    • 20 minutes plus at least 60 minutes chilling time

    Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

    We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

    Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
