No bake desserts are the best. I’m definitely more capable of having success with a dessert that doesn’t require cooking. And with that said let me tell you there was some issues with one of the desserts below. But as always, I wouldn’t share a train wreck recipe with you if wasn’t worth talking about.

Preparation

  1.  Mash graham crackers up into crumbs. Reserve a couple tablespoons of crumbs for garnish. Mix in melted vegan butter. If your mixture looks too dry, follow the tip in the notes below. If you don't care about a delicious mess on your plate, don't bother Put crust in vessel of choice (glass pan or cupcake liners).
  2. Mix vegan marshmallows and condensed coconut milk (or coconut cream). Melt them together. This took about 1 minute in my microwave.
  3. Very quickly pour the marshmallow filling on top of the crust before it cools and becomes difficult to work with. Place in freezer for one hour.
  4. Melt 1 bag of chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon coconut oil. You can do this in the microwave in 15-second bursts until everything is melted.
  5. Pour chocolate on top of dessert and garnish with graham cracker crumbs. Place in the freezer until chocolate is completely set.
  6. Once set cut if you’re making bars. Let them soften a little before eating. Expect the marshmallow to expand once it warms up. Serve.

    Nutritional Information

    You can make a proper graham cracker crust. Just mix crushed graham cracker with enough agave and oil (vegan butter or coconut oil) to saturate the crumbs. Then when it cools, the oil and sticky sweetener will hold everything together. Note: The information shown is based on available ingredients and preparation.
