Giant Chocolate Crispy Cake
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 10-12 People
2 Divine Chocolate 70% Dark bars (or similar)
⅔ cup runny, smooth peanut butter or tahini
⅓ cup coconut oil
⅔ cup coconut cream*
2 tbsp maple syrup
3-4 cups crisped rice cereal
⅓ cup vegan cream cheese
¼ cup thick coconut yoghurt
2 tbsp vegan vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp plant-based milk
Divine Dark Chocolate Mini Eggs
Line the base and sides of an 8-inch round cake pan (ideally with a loose-bottom) with parchment paper.
For the chocolate mix: chop the chocolate small and add to a heatproof bowl with the peanut butter or tahini and coconut oil. Melt until smooth and glossy, either over a bain-marie or in the microwave. Now spoon in the coconut cream and maple syrup and stir until fully incorporated.
To make the cake: add in the crisped cereal and stir well. Pour into the pan and press down firmly to make a thick tart case. Once shaped, you can cover with clingfilm and place a small plate in the middle to hold the indent shape for the filling.
Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Make the filling: whisk together all the ingredients till smooth.
To serve: remove the crispy cake from the fridge and slide out of the pan. Place on a serving plate and fill the middle with the cheesecake mix. Decorate with dark chocolate mini eggs and sprinkles.
To serve: use a warmed, sharp knife (run the knife under hot water and wipe dry) to slice into pieces and enjoy straight away.
To store: keep covered in the fridge for 3-5 days.
