This Vegan Halloween Chocolate Mousse Graveyard with Gluten Free Crispy Chocolate Soil is the perfect Halloween treat to serve at your Halloween party- for adults and kids, alike!
I know it’s just the start of October, but I’ve already started to plan my annual Halloween bash and I’m definitely going to need treats. While I would never discriminate against a classic Fun sized Reese’s peanut butter cup (NEVER EVER), I feel that sometimes it’s nice to offer something a little more sophisticated. Both for the kiddos and of course, the adults. This Vegan Halloween Chocolate Mousse Graveyard with Gluten Free Crispy Chocolate Soil totally fits the Halloween theme but is surprisingly healthy and light.
How to Make Vegan Halloween Chocolate Mousse Graveyard with Gluten Free Crispy Chocolate Soil
Halloween for me is all about the chocolate. Yes, there are other chocolate holidays like Valentines, Easter and Christmas, but Halloween is totally unapologetic about it, and my goodness, this mousse is a dream.
It starts in the blender or food processor by pureeing some ripe avocados (yep, you read that right) with melted chocolate, almond milk, vanilla and a little salt and maple syrup, to taste. The amount of syrup will depend on the ripeness and size of your avos, but also just how sweet you like it.
To create a “graveyard” soil, I mix together some melted dark chocolate with Rice Krispies and some cacao nibs for a crunchy texture. Then you can find some cookies or lady fingers and draw “RIP” on each of them for dipping. You can also totally write each of your guests’ names on the cookies if you feel like being extra cheeky.
The result is a spooky dessert that I promise you everyone, no matter how old or young they are, will absolutely adore.
Now, I want to know, what trick or treats are you serving up on Halloween?
