Probably one of the most un-vegan cake-kinda-thing you can get. It’s not even veggie. When you’re somehow not thinking about the fact you’re eating beef gelatine in your sweet dessert, they taste pretty good. How can’t they? They’re filled with sickly goodness solidified in chocolate. That’s the other catch with regular rocky road, they’re a combination of high sugar and high “bad” fat. Not sure about you, but I’m quite turned off by these non-vegan versions. I’m not claiming that The Hungry Herbivores rocky road is a health food by any stretch, yet in comparison to the usual butter and milk chocolate, the vegan substitution love your body a bit more. Replacing butter with coconut oil replaces bad fats with good fats, milk chocolate with dark chocolate adds in some antioxidants and other nutritional values and of course, vegan marshmallows replace the cruelty! Definitely in the UK, vegan marshmallows cost considerably more than the regular ones. But there’s no way we’d be using animal bones in this herbivore kitchen. So we used Mallows vegetarian marshmallows of course. If you can’t get hold of the mini marshmallows, make sure you cut them into small, more manageable sizes.
The gorgeous recipe is super rich. Yet that didn’t stop me devouring many pieces in one sitting. Definitely not guilt free, but worth it none the less.
