I’m still on the don’t turn on your oven kick. Here’s a simple square recipe, which can play with. You can make these vegan just substitute butter for margarine, milk for soy milk and use vegan pudding mix, and use dark chocolate chips.
- 1/2 cup butter melted (you might need a little extra if you feel it’s too dry)
- 1/3 cup of cocoa
- 1/4 cup of white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 3 tbsp milk
- 2 tbsp vanilla instant pudding
- 2 cups of icing sugar
- 3 oz semi sweet chocolate melted in pan with 1 tbs butter
Combine bottom ingredients well and press into a 9 inch square pan as evenly as possibly. Chill while making filling. Top bottom layer with filling and chill while making topping, when completely layered, chill for at least an hour and cut into squares. This should make at least 16 squares and they are very rich.
Make them mint chocolate, by omitting the vanilla extract in the bottom layer and adding 1 tsp of mint extract to the filling. Replace the semi sweet chocolate with sweetened dark chocolate for a more intense square.
Make them Irish cream using Bailey’s liqueur. Simply substitute the milk in the filling for the same amount of liqueur. This is not a vegan friendly substitution.
You can also try using different extracts like rum flavoring, maple flavoring or almond would be good.
