Let’s get to know our white chocolate ingredients: Powdered sugar, raw cashew butter, powdered sugar, powdered soy milk Cacao Butter Himalayan Rock Salt Vanilla Extract Peppermint Extract The funny thing is that white chocolate isn’t even real chocolate it’s not even facebook friends with chocolate.
.. it’s not even Linked IN 3rd connection with chocolate the only thing that kind of makes it look a little bit like chocolate is the raw cacao butter that we’re going to use which isn’t really even chocolate it’s just the fat taken out of the cocoa bean so we’re going to take this cacao butter over to the double-boiler and melt it, like I melt my enemies place your cacoa in a hot pot so you might be thinking, ooooo great I should stick my finger in here and give it a little try huh? However, cacao butter actually tastes nothing like chocolate, it tastes like, uh.
.. poison the only thing that makes white chocolate kind of taste like chocolate is the large amounts of sugar and the vanilla extract we’re going to add to it I’m melting melting (in witch voice) add your butter to your blender, now all you have to do is add the rest of your ingredients oh, I made a mess isn’t it weird that powdered sugar actually looks like snow, which means I actually didn’t make a mess I just made it more festive ha ha ha, ooooh I think we’ll, oooh, oh wow.
That was excessive whoops In my fantasies of you at home, you’re doing this a lot more gracefully than I am So we have here a cup of cacao butter, a cup of powdered sugar, we are now adding half a cup of cashew butter and then we’re going to add a pinch of salt just a small pinch, salt really brings out the flavor of chocolate naturally the thing with this recipe is that you have to do it fairly quickly because your cacao butter will start to harden which I think mine has a little bit so use your magic bullet and whizz it up really quick this is done, it’s ready to go, there’s a couple ways that you can use this now.
You can line a cookie sheet with parchement paper put it in the fridge and allow it to harden or you can use it in a different recipe now you can head over to the peppermint bark recipe and see how I used this in a fun way so line your cookie sheet with parchment paper and then you just have to pour your chocolate on it it’s that easy (magic pixie dust white chocolate pouring sound) okay so you want to put this in the freezer for about an hour or 2 hopefully your freezer is bigger than mine so we’re in the back room because my freezer is too small we have this wonderful freezer here check out the chocolate rock hard I’ll join you back in the kitchen when this is ready After like an hour, you have this! look at all this white chocolate holy moly man so there’s couple ways you can do this you can just break it you can break it into pieces with a spoon this is always a fun way of doing it like a little hammer mmmm so good now I like to serve these when I have people over over the holidays you can stick it on a plate or in a bowl that’s one way to do it, I like to also wrap it as you can see here so just pile them up like 5 or 6 and then just wrap the crate paper around and then get a little bow and twine is always nice as well by bow I meant ribbon and now you know how to make vegan white chocolate at home and it’s super easy don’t buy those stupid rabbits, or santa clauses, this doesn’t have to be a christmas recipe, it could be an easter recipe it could be an anytime recipe It can be a break up recipe we’ve all been there so merry christmas, or happy hannukah or happy kwanza, or “you didn’t need him anyway” whatever it is that you’re celebrating, have some chocolate eating a plant-based diet can be hard, so make sure that you subscribe to the Edgy Veg for new videos every Monday Just like this guy, or check out the vegan recipes playlist right here, eat your heart out, with plants find this task to be tasking, but I think grating a potato, is great
