{Recipe; Vegan MoFo} Freaky Friday: Freckles

freckles1Today, on Freaky Friday, I bring you freckles.

Chocolate freckles.

Yes, I have more than a few freckles, but these chocolate ones are tastier, I assure you. πŸ™‚

I made a couple of tiny changes to Cara’s sno-caps recipe at Forks and Beans. Cara is following a candy theme for Vegan MoFo. You will want to check it out – trust me!

freckles2These chocolates consist of raw cacao powder, pure maple syrup, icing sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. They are topped withΒ vegan and gluten-free 100s and 1000s (hundreds and thousands).

I used mini cupcake moulds (silicone and paper) to shape and set the chocolates. They are not uniform in shape. Some are thicker than others. The ones that I shaped in paper cupcake cases have a larger circumference. I made 23 uniquely-shaped chocolates.

The chocolates are very rich. You only want to eat a couple at a time. This is a good thing. πŸ™‚

The recipe is available here.

The Tiny Vegans’ Verdicts

Tiny Vegan, 6 years old, is not keen on bitter chocolate, so I did not think that he would like these.

I was right.

He took one bite, and asked for water!

Of course, my daughter and 4-year-old Tiny Vegan were enthusiastic about these treats. 4-year-old Tiny Vegan identified a great injustice – his sister’s chocolate was ‘fatter’ than his chocolate.

I hadn’t planned on giving one to Little Baker but he snatched one as I was photographing them – he is my photography assistant. πŸ™‚

Clearly, he does not have an aversion to bitter chocolate.

Once the tiny vegans had sampled them, I hid them away for Mat and I. They just don’t know it yet. πŸ˜‰

Wishing you all a glorious weekend in your part of this beautiful world.

    I saw these on Fork and beans…some delicious treats there this mofo weren’t there? I am not a sweetie person so probably won’t make these but there are certain times when only chocolate will do and these would be great stored in the fridge for just such times πŸ™‚

    These treats are so good looking & appetizing too! They look a must make! Yum Yum Yum! x

  3. Ah, memories of mixed lollies from the local milk bar! H has friends coming over this afternoon, and is mad that we didn’t see this earlier…she’s just made a chocolate cake. Doesn’t matter, she’s on holidays and will whip up a batch of these next week. πŸ˜‰

  4. Not too late! She made these as for her friends as well! Four teenage girls can’t have too much chocolate. (I hope there are leftovers.)

  5. Haha – love the name! Celeste πŸ™‚
