Chocolate Peppermint Cream Bars
I altered and veganized these decadent chocolate peppermint bars from the 1998 Wisconsin Electric Company Cookie Book. My dad used to work for them and the cookie book is a great little reference and source of inspiration. Apparently they’ve been putting out these mini books since the 1940s when the singular form of cookie was “cooky”. I’d love to get my hands on one of those!
Anyway, these bars are amazing. The original recipe called for premade chocolate syrup and a whole lot of butter. This was remedied by using a homemade chocolate syrup and help from Earth Balance margarine.
Cappuccino Nanaimo Bars
These are also from the aforementioned book, but very heavily modified. I decided to make the coconut an optional ingredient as I prefer them with little to no coconut. These are filled with mocha cream filling (delicious!) and have chopped cashews in the base.
Peanut Butter Cocoa Puff Bars
These came about when I was at the grocery store stocking up on cookie supplies (20 lbs each of flour and sugar, anyone?). I remembered that Cocoa Puffs are vegan and decided to pick up a box to see what I could come up with. These bars were basically improvised and turned out delicious!
