Between making raw pizzas and running VBU!, I’ve been trying to think of posts for this blog and it occured to me that I hadn’t made use of the Mint Chocolate ‘marshmallows’ I bought at the Toronto Veg Fest. This lovely treat from Apiecalypse Now! has been sitting lonely in the fridge waiting to be used. A line from her site describing the marshmallows: “These are the now infamous vegan marshmallows! No corn syrup, all organic, hand made in small batches, flavoured using natural and creative flavours.”
On a whim I put about 1 tablespoon of Soy Free Earth Balance in a pan and then melted the Mint Chocolate chip marshmallows and added chocolate gluten free rice crisp cereal. It was a gooey mess and I tried to smooth everything into a flat glass dish, but that didn’t really take shape, so what’s a girl to do but make a giant treat ball.
I kept the treat over night to harden and this is what happened:
Needless to say this is a treat worth making. I would suggest you order the marshmallows from Jenny, she’s an awesome baker and incredibly good hearted as she also is a huge part of a few animal activist groups: Open Cages Tour, Toronto Aquarium Resistance, Marineland Animal Defence. Have to love vegan activists.
Let me know if you make something like this – it also would work very well with popcorn if you have that on hand.
