Today I'm sharing a guest recipe with all of you courtesy of VeganFusionAcademy.com. You can visit their website to learn about their new Vegan programs and to gather additional information about them. The following recipe makes 15 bonbons.
No Bake Toasted Coconut Chocolate Bonbons Recipe
2 cups vegan dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans or macadamia nuts, toasted
1/2 cup coconut flakes, toasted
1/4 cup almond or peanut butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch cardamom powder
Place chocolate chips in double boiler on medium high heat until chips are melted, stirring frequently. Place in a large bowl. Set aside 1/4 cup of the toasted coconut to sprinkle on top of cookies. Add remaining ingredients to the melted chocolate and mix well.
Measure out 15 servings with a small scoop, roll into balls and place on a parchment paper lined or well oiled baking sheet. Top with remaining .cup coconut. Refrigerate until cool and serve slightly chilled or at room temperature.
