Vegan Dark Chocolate Pots De Creme

Dark chocolate pots de creme are one of my favourite desserts. They're so rich and creamy yet somehow so light at the same time. They're also normally so not vegan. Until now …

I swear to you that you will not be able to tell these are vegan. Pinky swear. Cross my heart and hope that 100 of these tiny mason cars full of heaven show up at my door. {Crossing my heart really hard right now}

I've made these alongside regular egg yolk and heavy cream based pots de creme for dinners at the supper club and so have been able to try them side by side. It is next to impossible to tell one from the other, even when I'm taking a bite from each.

*I just realized that I inadvertently admitted to eating more than one of these at once. Can we keep that a secret between just us? 🙂

Vegan Dark Chocolate Pots De Creme

There have been several evenings when my handsome man and I have sat next to each other with a dark chocolate vegan pot de creme and a regular dark chocolate pot de creme in front of us, alternating taking bits from each. We try to choose a favourite but they're just too similar.

The vegan version is a tiny bit creamier and the regular version is just a tiny bit richer. It's hard to even tell that slight difference when I'm eating them side by side so if you're eating this on its own you'll definitely never know it's missing all the eggs and dairy.

Awesome reasons to go to your kitchen and make these right away:

  1. They're super delicious ( I think I said that already)
  2. They're healthy – no need to feel guilty about eating more than one
  3. They're incredibly simple to prepare
  4. They take only 10 minutes to make (then they need to hangout in your fridge for a few hours to firm up)
  5. You can serve them in cute little mason jars
  6. You can easily bring them to your neighbour in their cute little mason jars and be forever after known as The Best Neighbour Ever

Vegan Dark Chocolate Pots De Creme

The key to this vegan pot de creme is to use silken tofu. DO NOT use soft tofu … trust me, you will be left with a funny taste.

Also, please don't get all super crafty and add some coconut milk instead of the water. Please, I beg you not to do that. I did that once (thinking I was rather crafty) and it gave the whole batch an off taste that I couldn't get rid of. →insert sad face←

And one more thing … vegan pot de creme will only be as good as the chocolate you use. Use chocolate that you absolutely love and you will love these too.

Now please, stop reading this and go and make them. And let me know when they're ready … I'll be right over!
