After much anticipation, Starbucks released one of its new seasonal drinks last week, the Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. Much to our dismay, this drink cannot be made vegan. Instead, you’ll have to stick with some of the other classic holiday drinks like the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Peppermint Mocha, or Hot Chocolate. You don’t have to miss out on the all the white chocolate flavored sweets and treats this holiday season, though. Instead of indulging in the drink, you can whip up your own delicious white chocolate baked goods in the kitchen (we even have a white chocolate vegan cake pop recipe for you that’s just as good as the ones at Starbucks).
With the help of the Food Monster App, we found a variety of smooth, creamy, and sweet white chocolate recipes. Whether you need a unique dessert to take to your a holiday party or some treats to enjoy in front of a warm fire, these will satisfy all your white chocolate cravings. Want to learn how to make plant-based white chocolate first? Here’s a simple guide to follow.
