Vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Marsh Squares
Hello & Happy Friday!
Next to banana bread, I love classic marshmallow treats for countless reasons. They are nostalgic, quick, effortless, affordable, they are almost like a blank canvas, and can easily be made vegan!
Making these classic vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter marshmallow treats a no brainer.
When this approachable recipe was created a few years ago, I was still struggling to get dark chocolate to melt without burning lol. (true story) In adhering to the standard chocolate melting routine using heavy cream, I subbed for coconut milk and the results were always just plain terrible! It wasn’t until later that I finally realized that you can utilize a dab of coconut oil and boom, the chocolate melts seamlessly. Having created this recipe with chocolate that just wouldn’t work with me lol, I knew I had to remake this recipe because it was just so effortless and so good!
This recipe doesn’t need a sales pitch, but they are quick, easy, affordable, can easily be made in bulk, kid friendly, perf for entertaining, and non vegan approved!
