Rich Dark Chocolate Pots

If you asked me what the buzz word of January 2017 was I’d most certainly say ‘Veganary’ and whilst I’m not a vegan, I do enjoy a good vegan meal and a challenge.

Huh, a challenge?” you might ask, well we had good friends coming over for dinner and they had recently converted to a vegan lifestyle. I knew they had a sweet tooth, I wanted to create something seriously rich and indulgent for dessert. I initially considered sweet potato brownies, but it felt like a lot of preparation when I was time poor and I wanted to make an impact.

I started opening our cupboards and saw trusty coconut milk, I knew if I bought some 80% cocoa dark chocolate, I could make something delectable.

In terms of decoration, I added some simple chocolate bark which is just melted chocolate, decorated with nuts and seeds, and left to set in the fridge for an hour. As a matter of fact, this is ideal if you’re feeling peckish for something sweet, but only have plain chocolate in the cupboard which can be uninspiring at times.

One thing I do want to mention, just because this is vegan is most certainly doesn’t mean it’s ‘refined sugar-free’ and super healthy. Quite the opposite actually, however, this isn’t something you’d eat every day and if you’re very conscious then I’d suggest experimenting with alternative sweeteners.

Rich Dark Chocolate Pots


  1. 2 Cans Coconut Milk

  2. 30g Cocoa powder

  3. 180g 80%+ or vegan chocolate

  4. 40g Icing sugar


  1. Start by leaving the coconut milk (in the can) in the fridge overnight or for a few hours.

  2. Then, melt the chocolate, and my personal method is by slowly heating the chocolate on defrost in the microwave, stopping to stir every few minutes.

  3. Once the chocolate is melted, moving quickly you need to empty the now set coconut milk into a large mixing bowl and place into a large mixing bowl. Using an electric hand held mixer, pulse until a smooth mix forms and now add in the chocolate, cocoa powder and icing sugar.

  4. Just a warming, this will be a very thick mix and you’ll need to mix right away before the chocolate starts setting.

  5. Now, spoon the chocolate into pots and leave in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.

Do you entertain often? What is your favourite dessert?
