Raw Vegan Hanukkah Gelt

Sarah E.

Most brands of Hanukkah gelt, the traditional foil-covered chocolate coins that are used to play games of Dreidel, are either non-vegan or are made with non-fair trade chocolate and yucky fillers. This Hanukkah, don’t settle for sub-par store-bought Hanukkah gelt! Make your own! This recipe, which is an adaptation of the raw chocolate I usually make, is solid at room temperature, and can be wrapped in foil, if you’d like!

Raw Vegan Hanukkah Gelt

Ingredients:

1 cup raw cacao paste (or 1/2 cup raw cacao powder and 3 Tbs coconut oil)

1/4 cup xylitol (optional)

2 droppers ful of liquid stevia

1 Tbs maca

2 Tbs mesquite powder

1 pinch vanilla powder

drop mint extract (optional)

Instructions:

Melt chocolate using a double boiler on low heat or in the dehydrator. Once melted, stir in other ingredients and mix until a smooth consistency. Remove from heat, place in chocolate molds and put in freezer or fridge. When hardened, enjoy immediately or during a game of cover in foil (optional) and use for a game of Dreidel.

Happy (early) Hanukkah! What other festive recipes would you like to see veganized for the holidays?
