One of the sweets that cannot be missed during Christmas time for Spaniards is Turrón. And well I am from Spain and no matter where hubby and I live I’ll always miss it. So, this year I decided to make my very own homemade Vegan Crunchy Milk Chocolate Spanish Turrón and it’s to die for delicious! You need to try it! So crunchy and good, made with homemade vegan milk chocolate. Accompany this delicious turrón de chocolate by another one of our newest creations, our Homemade Vegan Chai Spiced Baileys. This combo is a dream!
Turrón is the Spanish candy most commonly associated with Christmas in Spain. It’s not easy to find outside of Spain and basically impossible to find it vegan anywhere. We have seen it in some shops in Spain, but sadly extremely overpriced. Our version is so much more affordable and so easy and delicious that you won’t feel the need to buy store-bought ever again!
This easy Vegan Crunchy Milk Chocolate Spanish Turrón takes less than 15 minutes and is made with only 5 ingredients: chocolate, cacao butter, coconut milk powder, vegan unsalted butter block, and puffed rice cereal. Enjoy!
And… in case you missed it, we are so excited to announce that we have published our very first cookbook ALL PLANTS: The Food You Love, The Vegan Way, which includes over 150 satisfying recipes to feed all the members of your household (including your dogs!). It’s available internationally as a hardcover on Book Depository (with free delivery worldwide), Walmart, and in many other bookstores! Yay! Click here to learn more. You can also purchase it as a downloadable e-book (pdf) in our Store, and our Etsy Shop.
