Easy Christmas Dessert Recipes (VEGAN)

christmas dessert recipes vegan cover

I LOVE baking any time of the year but Christmas baking has always been so much more exciting to me. I used to love coming up with my own Christmas dessert recipes and experimenting with all of the festive spices. However, this Christmas is my first one as a vegan. At first I thought this meant missing out and not being able to bake my usual festive treats. That is, until I remembered there’s a substitute for almost every non-vegan baking ingredient.

4 Ingredient Christmas dessert recipes

I’ve been busy in the kitchen for the last few weeks creating some fabulous vegan desserts, including an AMAZING sticky toffee pudding which I will be sharing the recipe for soon. I know there will be some other newbie vegans in the same position as me so I wanted to create some quick and easy recipes to make sure we don’t miss out on the Christmas treats. I also wanted to make them tasty enough for my non-vegan friends to enjoy and the recipes below have been a big success! They are all super easy to make too. Here are 3 of the Christmas dessert recipes I’ve been making recently, all of which require only 4 ingredients or less.

Candy cane bark

Ingredients

  • 180g dark chocolate
  • 180g dairy free white chocolate (I used Tesco’s)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 or 2 candy canes

Method

  1. Line a 6 x 8″ baking pan with baking paper.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate and spread it thinly over the baking paper. Chill in the fridge for 5 minutes, until slightly firm.
  3. Melt the white chocolate and mix in the peppermint extract. Pour and spread over the dark chocolate in the pan.
  4. Crush the candy canes using the end of a rolling pin and sprinkle them over the chocolate. Refrigerate for around 1 hour.
  5. Break up or cut into pieces before serving.
