Vegan 3 Musketeers Bars

Namely Marly shows that you can be vegan and still eat candy bars with this recipe for yummy vegan homemade Three Musketeers Bars.I know some vegans are very passionate about making their recipes as healthy as possible. I agree that is an important mission. With my recipes, however, I try to look for a balance between what I consider to be healthy and knock-your-socks-off delicious! I want to prove that you can be vegan and eat some of the yummiest dishes on the planet!

Sometimes I look for both in one recipe – healthy and delicious. Sometimes I have recipes that by their nature are very healthy (like salads). That’s how I can justify some recipes that I know are not really healthy at all but fall into that cholesterol-free category of sock-free yumminess.

That is where this recipe sits. Giving up milk chocolate was one of the more difficult tasks for me in becoming vegan. And I eventually came to peace with it because I switched to dark chocolate and ended up liking that even more. So I said, “Forget you!’ to those little bite-size, milk-chocolate covered 3 Musketeers Bars.

Then 3 Musketeers Bars came out with their dark chocolate covered version. That was just cruel. Because although it was covered in dark chocolate, there was still dairy involved. It’s true that my taste-buds would be quite happy eating this morsel, but the animal-loving side of me would not relent.

But recently discovered the site Let’s Dish where she posted a recipe for home-made 3 Musketeers Bars. I took one look at the recipe and knew it was something I could transform into vegan bliss. And this is what I did.

Vegan 3 Musketeers Bars

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, (dairy free)
  • 1 carton Dairy free whipped topping, thawed & whipped (I use Rich’s Readi-Whip)
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, (dairy free)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Directions:

  1. Line an 8β€³ square baking pan with wax paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave. I do this for about 1 minute on my microwave, stopping and stirring throughout until the chocolate chips are melted and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Let the chocolate chips sit for a minute while you whip up the dairy-free whipped topping. Follow the directions on the container, but it usually takes me about 6-7 minutes on high.
  4. Next, add whipped topping to melted chocolate and beat until well combined and fluffy, 30-60 seconds more.
    Spread chocolate mixture evenly into prepared pan. I use a spatula so I can get all the fluffy goodness into the pan.
    Place the chocolate mixture in your freezer for about 30 minutes. Remove the chocolate mixture from the pan and cut into squares and then return to freezer for another 30 minutes.
  5. Melt 2 cups of chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl (as instructed above). Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and stir until smooth.
  6. Dip frozen chocolate squares into the melted chocolate chip mixture and and place finished candy bar on a baking tray lined with wax paper.
  7. Place the tray of finished candy bar in the refrigerator or freezer to allow the chocolate to set.

We kept ours in the freezer. What a wonderful cool snack on a warm summer/fall day!
