Desserts in teensy weensy jars and ramekins are so darn cute. This veganized recipe doesn’t require any baking–it’s foolproof and just needs about 2 hours in the fridge to set. That’s right. No butter. No cream, eggs. Nada. You might ask, how does this taste so good without all the dairy? And I’ll say, you won’t even miss it.

Chocolate Vegan Pots de Creme with Gluten-Free Graham Cracker Crumble
By Kelly Rae — A Streetcar Named Devour
FOR THE GRAHAM CRACKER CRUMBLE
1 cup cashews (or whatever nut variety you have in your pantry)
1/2 cup pitted dates
1 Tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Pulse together in a food processor till crumbly.
FOR THE POT DE CREME
2 cups silken tofu (do not use firm tofu)
8 ounces dairy-free dark chocolate, melted (I use Enjoy Life)
3 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 Tablespoon espresso powder (King Arthur Flour makes the best! I got mine via Sur La Table)
1/4 cup cashew milk (or any plant-based milk of your choosing)
1-3 Tablespoons maple syrup (optional, if you like a sweeter pot de creme)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted and for sprinkling
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, making sure not to burn it.
Place all ingredients into a blender and zap till thoroughly blended.
Divvy up into different-sized ramekins or Mason jars, depending on how many portions you need. Layer the graham cracker crumble in between layers of the chocolate puree.
Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to fully set.
Serve with toasted shredded coconut. Boom.
One thought on “Why do you build me up? Buttercup?”
Looks so good.
