I saw this recipe in a magazine, veganized it and wanted to share it with everyone. I haven't tried it yet, but thought it sounded like a very yummy holiday treat!
Candy Cane "Ice Cream"-
1 pint vanilla frozen dessert (like Soy Delicious)
1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
6 small candy canes, crushed (they're vegan, right???)
Soften the ice cream by letting it sit out for 15 minutes, then stir in the peppermint extract & crushed candy canes. Freeze until firm.
Dark Chocolate Pudding Pie-
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plain soy milk
2 1-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate
2 tablespoons margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup hot water
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 10-inch pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk together flour, sugar, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, baking powder & salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Combine soy milk, chocolate squares and margarine in a small saucepan. Place over medium-low heat until chocolate & margarine are melted. Blend well into flour mixture. Transfer batter into prepared pie pan, spreading evenly across the bottom.
In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar and 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Sprinkle evenly over batter. Place pie in oven and gently pour hot water over everything (this will create a brownielike top and a gooey bottom). Bake for 40 minutes. Center will be puddinglike.
Remove pudding pie from oven and let cool slightly. Spoon each serving onto a dessert plate, and top with a scoop of the peppermint "ice cream".
