Vegan White Chocolate Recipe

Would you believe it if I told you that “White Chocolate” is not real chocolate? Yes, we have all been fooled. White chocolate is not really chocolate because it does not use coca in the ingredients. Instead, white chocolate consists of cocoa butter, sugar, and some sort of dairy or non-dairy alternatives with a pinch of salt. Today, we are making Vegan White Chocolate. Trust me, it’s one of the best substitutes for many chocolate-inspired desserts. 

White Chocolate

Unlike the traditional white chocolates, this recipe uses a non-dairy substitute, replicating the rich and creamy flavours combined with the sweetness of regular white chocolate. It is also incredibly easy to make and just needs a blender, pan and a microwave. See instructions below.

What else can I use this recipe for? 

It’s amazing on its own but you can also make Vegan White-Chocolate Chip Cookies with some cranberries and macadamia nuts. Or if you are feeling festive, add some peppermint candy chunks with some dark chocolates and experiment with this Peppermint Bark recipe. How about a white-chocolate popcorn for your next Neflix show?

This quick and easy vegan white chocolate recipe perfectly pairs with dark chocolate, dried cranberries, rice crispy cereal, crushed candy canes and many other toppings!
