Is there really anything out there as delicious and satisfying as chocolate? While I’m not one of those people who is OBSESSED with chocolate, I do have a sweet tooth – especially after a savoury meal.
Flashback to my childhood: remember Icy Squares? Those amazing melt-in-your-mouth, somehow-feel-cold, sweet, delicious little cubes wrapped in colourful foil? Yum. I used to LOVE Icy Squares. Too bad they’re stocked full of unfortunate ingredients I can’t pronounce. But that flavour…

I’m not vegan, but I want to draw attention to the fact that this is delicious dairy-free, three-ingredient way to satisfy those cravings without all the junk. .
Vegan chocolate in a hurry
Get ready for this… it’s tough… (just kidding it’s super easy!)
1 part cocoa powder
1 part natural maple syrup (Aunt Jemima you have no place here!)
1 part virgin coconut oil, melted but not warm. (If you don’t already have coconut oil, get some, and get the good stuff. You won’t regret it.)
Mix. Pour. Freeze. Eat.
Really. Mix it up, pour it into a dish with a lip on it. Freezing time will depend on the size of your pan and how thick it ends up. If you’re dying for chocolate like I usually am at this point, pour it thinner so it freezes quicker. Pull it out of the freezer and break into pieces.
