THE BEST VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE BY IQS, SPOOKIFIED (Happy Halloween… BOO!)

I made this yummy IQS chocolate mousse (purportedly the best vegan chocolate mousse around) after seeing it suggested as a healthy Halloween treat on iquitsugar.com the other day. I loved their suggestion of turning the chocolate mousse cups into spooky little diorama treats!
 
These were super-easy to assemble; approximately 100 x less labour intensive than baking and decorating Halloween cupcakes. 😉 So if you’re looking for a healthy, vegan, raw, gluten-free, sugar-free, chocolate treat that’s both festive AND delicious, look no further!

THE BEST VEGAN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, SPOOKIFIED 
Recipe only slightly tweaked from the amazing I Quit Sugar recipe, which you can find at iquitsugar.com

 

INGREDIENTS

400 ml can coconut cream
100 ml raw cacao powder
35 ml rice malt syrup
60 ml chia seeds
1-2 tbsp cacao nibs
A few large mint leaves, chopped finely

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine coconut cream, cacao powder, rice malt syrup and chia seeds in a large mixing bowl, whisking until smooth.
  2. Pour into 4 serving glasses. Chill in the fridge for around 2 hours, or until firmly set.
  3. Add little headstones*, sprinkle some chopped mint (grass!) around the inside edge of each mousse cup, then add Halloween characters (I used Lego** skeleton figures), pushing them just the tiniest way into the mousse so that it looks as though they are emerging from it. Finally, sprinkle some crushed cacao nibs around the figures to create small piles of “earth”… and, voilà; a slightly scary, IQS-style, sugar-free treat!

 

If you’re celebrating Halloween, enjoy!
If not, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

*I can upload free printable headstone graphics if anyone is interested. They can, when adhered to toothpicks or ice-cream sticks, be used as pictured, or as cupcake toppers.
**Obviously Lego pieces are not edible decorations and MUST (it should go without saying) be removed before serving. Our children had no access to the small 
pieces at any point of the assembly or serving of this dessert, but still loved and appreciated the look of them prior to serving.

    • I can’t claim ownership on anything but the addition of lego men, mint and cacao nibs. Very grateful to IQS for sharing this idea… just in the nick of time 🙂 Hope you had a good weekend! xxx

  1. Coconut cream?! Now that is something I have not used yet. These little chocolate pots look delicious – eh sorry, I mean horrifically scary 😉

  2. Oh yum, Miss M.
    The neighbourhood kids are getting more flamboyant dressing up in their scary and way-out outfits – very cute. I would have loved to have been able to give them these yummy treats; they were satisfied, though, with ‘bought’ chocolate treats. They didn’t complain! 😉
