These strawberry chocolate dessert cups are such a delicious snack! They’re kind of like peanut butter cups. But instead of peanut butter they’re filled with strawberry coconut cream and fresh strawberries. So good and of course, as all of my recipes, 100 % vegan. Plus, they’re gluten-free, dairy-free, and free from refined sugars.
I’ve always loved the combo of strawberries and chocolate. As a kid, I always had these chocolate bars that were filled with a cream made of strawberries and yogurt. OMG, they were so good! I just saw them in the supermarket the other day, so I thought I should really make a vegan version of them. However, eventually I didn’t make chocolate bars, but vegan chocolate cups. I didn’t have a silicon mold to make chocolate bars and I couldn’t find a good one online. I need to look into that a bit more, but I’ll definitely plan to make some of these vegan chocolate bars soon. But in the meantime, I’ll just enjoy these vegan strawberry chocolate dessert cups. They’re SO yummy! And don’t they look amazing?!
Strawberry Chocolate Dessert Cups – What You’ll Need
And they’re also pretty easy to make. You need only 5 ingredients:
- dark chocolate
- coconut milk
- maple syrup
That’s it! They’re so rich and chocolatey. And incredibly easy to make!
Simply coat silicone cupcakes liners with melted chocolate and freeze for about 20 minutes. You could also use paper cupcake liners, but I prefer to use silicon ones. In the meantime, make the filling. Blend the cashews together with the strawberries, the maple syrup, and the coconut milk. Spoon the strawberry cashew mixture into the chilled chocolate cups, add a sliced strawberry on top, and cover with more melted chocolate. Add another strawberry slice on top and put them back in the freezer. As always, you can find the full recipe with an exact ingredient list and recipe instructions in a separate recipe box beneath the text section.
You can enjoy them frozen or let them thaw for about 20 minutes before serving. Totally depends on what you like better. I usually prefer to eat them frozen though.
Let me know if you give them a try. I always love reading your comments on the blog and Facebook. And seeing your Vegan Heaven creations on Instagram.
Have a great week!
