If you’re hosting a Halloween get together this year food is probably not far from your mind; snacks and nibbles are one of our favourite things about Halloween but what do you do if you’re catering for vegan diets and all the sweet treats you’ve prepared/bought aren’t suitable? Fear not – these vegan chocolate mousse graveyards are the perfect dish to prepare for these guests and are so delicious your non-vegan guests will love them too! The great thing about these mousse’s is that you could even personalise the gravestones to make sure each guest has their very own mousse preventing anyone tucking into two… although we suggest making more than one per person as these spooky treats are bound to be a hit!
Using everybody’s favourite fruit of the moment as a base, this avocado and cocoa mousse is thick and creamy just like the non-vegan variety and has a delicious, rich taste that works perfectly with the crumbly gravel coating. If you are catering for vegan diets make sure to double check ingredients lists, many products that we think should be vegan involve non-vegan additions during processing rendering them no longer vegan so to be on the safe side we recommend checking the packaging of all ingredients before you purchase them. It’s becoming increasingly easier to cater for vegan diets and we managed to find all of our ingredients in our local supermarket not containing non-vegan ingredients.
To make these chocolate mousse graveyard’s all you need is a mixing bowl, glasses for serving, a jug and a rolling pin to crush your coco cereal krispies. If you’re looking for something a spooktacular light bite instead, our Devilish Deviled Eggs may be a better suit or for something really striking our Poison Apples are an easy snack to prepare in advance too.
