Fudgy Vegan Chocolate Bark with Cramberries and Almonds. Vegan palm oil free recipe


Hubbs is on his 3 week home vacation! So this month is going to be all short and sweet posts, some with approximate measurements. Like todays post.:). Usually my approximations are pretty close to the real measurement.
As we all know, till about a year back, I was not fond of chocolate. The only chocolate I ate while growing up occasionally was milk chocolate. You couldnt get me to eat dark bitter chocolate any which way. My sister was a chocolate fan, again only soft milk chocolate though. And she was also the reason behind the occasional availability of chocolate at our home. (Chocolate was a pricey bribe item used to get kids to do stuff back then ;))
Of course, this year I have been on a Chocolate roll , esp dark delicious good chocolate. But this creation is dedicated to my lil sister. A milky soft chocolate creation.

Vegan Richa: Fudgy Chocolate Bark with Cranberries

This fudgy chocolate bark melts in your mouth like a silky delicious smooth ummmmmm. It is insane I tell ya. The cocoa butter and coconut cream, makes it so fudgy and soft, that the bark will start to melt lightly in your hands if you hold it too long. One more reason to put the whole piece in your mouth and not be able to speak for the next 5 minutes or lick your finger later 😉  You can make it into thick fudge squares too.

You can get pure food grade Cocoa butter on Amazon or health food stores like 

Happy holidays!

  • 1 cup vegan palm oil free semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pure Cocoa butter, more the merrier
  • 1/4 cup So Delicious Coconut creamer, or cream from full fat coconut milk
  • 3 Tablespoons finely ground raw sugar, or date paste of 4-5 dates or maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder, more for darker or less/omit for lighter
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee powder, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Toppings: Dried Cranberries, coarsely ground almonds or almond slivers
  • Variations: Add a Tablespoon or so Liqueur of choice, or rum extract to the chocolate mixture.
  • Use other chopped nuts, pistachios/cashew/walnut/pecan, sunflower or pumpkin or melon seeds, or hemp seeds, other dried fruit like goji berries, apricots, blueberries. The possibilities are endless. Or keep the chocolate naked without any toppings.


  • In a pan on low heat, bring the coconut creamer/coconut milk cream to an almost boil.
  • (Chill a full fat coconut milk can for a few hours. Scoop the opaque cream from the top and use)
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and keep mixing for 1-2 minutes continuously till almost everything melts.
  • Take off heat and whisk for another minute.
  • Let it cool for 2 minutes, then whisk again for half a minute to get a smooth mixture.
  • Pour on parchment and spread using a spatula.
  • Top with dried fruit and nuts of choice.
  • Chill the refrigerator for half an hour.
  • Break into pieces and store in airtight container in a cool place. If your counter is going to be warm, then store in the refrigerator.

    Excellent! It’s chewy versus crunchy. How do I get it to be crunchy? The thickness is the same as your picture.

    It absolutely tastes delicious btw. Will be making again tomorrow so hopefully you can give me some ideas to make it more crunchy—

    Screw this being just for the holidays! It’s June and I’m planning on making this recipe for my father for Father’s Day as I’m fairly broke this year. Bark is good all year long, especially when its hot and the chocolate melts on your fingers. MMmmm, craving chocolate, almonds and cranberries so this is absolutely perfect. I love all your recipes, old and new.
