Tomorrow is (or was…) Easter!  Since I find it important to treat yourself now and again, why not do it with these treats.  Yes, I realize these aren’t the healthiest desserts.  Yes, there are healthier things we could all be eating.  Yes it has a very small amount of shortening per serving.  I hear all of your concerns.  But the number one lesson in eating, in my opinion, is moderation.  Obviously these aren’t a meal replacer nor an every day snack.  But once in awhile a plant-based sweet isn’t going to be the end of the world.  So enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 Cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 1.5 Tablespoon of Agave or liquid sweetener
  • 1.5 Tablespoon of Water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Mint Extract (I used 1/2 Teaspoon of minced dried mint)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Shortening (I used Trans Fat Free Nature's Balance)
  • 1.5 Cups of Non-Dairy Chocolate Chips (I used Guittard Semi-Sweet)

Method

Step 1

Using a hand mixer or a food processor, mix the sugar, agave, water, mint and shortening until its a thick dough.

Step 2

Kneed the dough into a ball and then roll out into a 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick slab. Put in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Cut small rounds out of the slab (I used a shot glass to get them a great size and shape) and put them back into the freezer for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Using the microwave, a double boiler, or a smaller pot in a larger pot with water in it on medium heat, melt the chocolate chips until smooth. Don't burn!

Step 5

Put wax or parchment paper down on a baking sheet, and put small dabs of chocolate on it to coat the bottom of the patties. Place the patties on the dabs, and cover with melted chocolate. The trick is to keep the patties frozen, so you may want to keep them in the freezer while you're coating the others.

Step 6

Put back in the freezer for 20 minutes or until frozen solid. Keep in a bag in the freezer and enjoy!

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
