You can’t get more classic than chocolate and peanut butter – so let’s spice things up a bit by trying a new equally tasty combo: chocolate and tahini! Show off your culinary skills with this Chocolate Tahini Butter Cup Pie -- the flavor pairings leave you with a show-stopping dessert that is vegan, velvety, and unbelievably rich.
1 kg graham cracker cereal
⅓ cup 90 mL melted vegan butter
12oz firm silken tofu, cubed and patted dry
½ cup = tahini (toasted sesame butter)
1 ¾ cup coconut whipped cream
⅓ cup maple syrup or agave
1 tsp 10 mL vanilla extract
Pinch mineral salt
CHOCOLATE GANACHE TOPPING
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
1 cup semisweet dairy free chocolate chips
STEP 1: We’re going to make the crust first, so preheat your oven to 190 degrees C. Lightly oil a glass pie pan.
STEP 2: Add your graham cracker cereal to a food processor and blend until it’s loose and crumbly. Add your vegan butter and pulse until it’s blended.
STEP 3: Add your buttery graham crackers to the pan. Use your fingers to mold it down into a crust.
STEP 4: Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
STEP 5: While your crust is cooling, let’s make the filling. In your food processor, add the tofu, tahini, coconut whipped cream, maple syrup, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Whip it all up in the food processor until it’s light and creamy.
STEP 7: Stick your pie in the freezer to chill – about 1 hour. We want it to be slightly firm, not frozen.
STEP 8: Now we’re going to prepare the chocolate ganache, so add your chocolate chips to a bowl.
STEP 9: Heat your coconut milk to a low simmer. Pour over your chocolate chips, and let sit for a few minutes to melt.
STEP 11: Once your pie is finished chilling, remove it from the freezer, and use a spatula to spread the chocolate topping over the pie. Place it back in the freezer for about 30 minutes, so the chocolate can set.
