Vegan Chocolate Mousse, Salted Caramel with toasted marshmallow

desserts | April 12, 2016 | By

This dairy, egg, nut,soy and gluten free recipe for Vegan Chocolate Mousse, Salted Caramel with toasted marshmallow pretty much ticks all boxes for me!  It has taken a few days of adjusting to get just right but I’m pretty confident you will love it as much as me and my girls 🙂Vegan Chocolate Mousse, Salted Caramel with toasted marshmallow IMG_3444

 

For this Vegan Chocolate Mousse, Salted Caramel with toasted marshmallow, my strategy was really just to make a plate/glass full of pretty much everything I love in this world! Chocolate and marshmallow are my Winter go-to’s and this is sort of a wee play on toasted marshmallows over the fire, then sandwiched between chocolate biscuits. Instead of chocolate biscuit, I’ve added a chocolate rice crispy crumb, which is one of my birthday party staples…it is super easy, allergy friendly since it’s just dairy free chocolate and rice crispies/bubbles and can be jazzed up with gold and silver sprinkles, aka fairy dust.  Any of the components in this recipe would be fine by themselves (the salted caramel would be an awesome ice-cream sauce), but I’ve put them all together to show an allergy-friendly fancy dessert isn’t impossible!

*note: the marshmallow component isn’t vegan as it contains gelatine but you could substitute whipped coconut cream for a colour contrast 🙂

Ingredients
  1. 250g chocolate, melted
  2. 1/2 tin chickpea brine (approx 85g)
  3. 150g sugar
  4. 1 tin coconut cream, refrigerated for 1-2 days in advance
  5. 1/4 cup water
Instructions
  1. 1. Tip the watery liquid off the coconut cream (I use this for smoothies) and whip the remaining cream until thick.
  2. 2. Place the chickpea brine in a cake mixer and start whisking at full speed.
  3. 3. Put the sugar and water in a pot and bring to the boil quickly. Boil for 2 minutes then tie off the heat and let cool for 2 minutes.
  4. 4. Slowly pour the hot syrup down the inside of the mixing bowl with the chickpea brine (it should be white and thick by now). Keep whisking until the mix is cool, about 8 minutes.
  5. 5. Fold the cream and chickpea mix together gently.
  6. 6. Take one spoonful of the cream mix and fold into the melted chocolate quickly then fold the chocolate mix into the remaining cream mix. (this process stops the chocolate 'seizing)
  7. 7. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Notes
  1. *I find it easier to double this recipe, using a whole tin of chickpea brine as my cake mixer doesn't really cope with a small amount.
  2. * this recipe requires you to refrigerate the coconut cream for at least a day in advance.

Ingredients
  1. 1 tin coconut condensed milk
  2. 2 heaped Tablespoons brown sugar
  3. 1 heaped Tablespoon Golden Syrup
  4. 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. 2. Whisk the first 3 ingredients together then place in an oven dish (I use a glass Pyrex dish).
  3. 3. Place in the oven and cook until golden brown and thick. I cooked mine for exactly 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, but it is dependent on the oven.
  4. 4. Stir in a good pinch sea salt, reserving the rest for sprinkling on top of the caramel when serving.
  5. 5. Cool completely, then refrigerate for several hours.
Notes
  1. This is also nice with nut paste (I use hazelnut) mixed into it if nut allergy is not a problem for you. I mix it in at the end when it's cooling.
