Vegan Chocolate-Covered Cherries

Vegan Chocolate-Covered Cherries

Another reader request, this time Kelli asked me to create vegan chocolate-covered cherries–you know the kind with the gooey white filling? I took her idea and put a twist on it and methinks these are even better than just your typical chocolate-covered cherry! What’s so different about these, you ask? Oh, great question–thank you for asking...
Vegan Chocolate Turtles

Vegan Chocolate Turtles

I love it when I receive requests from you, super amazing readers and friends, about what you want to see over here–especially when whatever is on your mind is on mine as well. And I have been thinking a lot about Chocolate Turtles lately for some reason. It must have been because of all the...
Allergen-Friendly Baking 101: Chocolate-Making

Allergen-Friendly Baking 101: Chocolate-Making

I’m back to familiar territory and discussing all things CHOCOLATE today for this Valentine’s Day special edition of our Allergen-Friendly Baking Series. When I began Fork & Beans I quickly became known as the “Candy Lady” (if you scroll down this post you will see why). Making candy and tempering chocolate used to be something that intimidated...
Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Remember those Peanut Butter Chocolate Kisses Cookies you once loved making as a kid? You know, the ones that you ate more of the Kisses than actually put on the cookies itself?  And remember these homemade White Chocolate Peppermint Kisses (click on the underlined words for the link) that I made a couple of weeks...
Vegan Candy Cane "Kisses"

Vegan Candy Cane “Kisses”

Think of the delight and surprise of your friends and family this Christmas when they open up this tiny package, only to find a non-dairy version of their favorite holiday chocolate candy treat. Hershey Kisses are my favorite chocolates because they are the perfect size when you have that sweet tooth nagging at you to devour something...
Trick-Or-Treat Halloween Surprise Cookies

Trick-Or-Treat Halloween Surprise Cookies

So I’m feeling generous. It’s one more day until Halloween and we need to find a way to share all the Halloween spookiness and fun that we can squeeze in. This totally calls for a celebratory cookie…and not just any ol’ cookie–a cookie that screams Halloween.  As I shared with my last post, I’m on a pressing...
10 Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Candy Bars

10 Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Candy Bars

Eeeeeee, Halloween is just around the corner, can you believe it?! Ever since I started Fork & Beans, I have made it a “thing” of mine to go all out during this holiday month. The funny thing I’m finding every year now is that I’m already exhausted of all the Halloween celebrations and festivities before the...
Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix

Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Twix

It’s the last day of Vegan MoFo and I am celebrating with a big ol’ batch of homemade gluten-free vegan Twix bars. Who’s with me? Sometimes the annoying thing about making homemade treats that are without gluten, eggs, and dairy is that they end up being time-consuming. A lot of people ask if I will...
Vegan Dark Chocolate Strawberry Cream Truffles

Vegan Dark Chocolate Strawberry Cream Truffles

I’m on strike! I have the touch of death in the kitchen when it comes to baking as of late. I’m failing royally at everything I have a go at. It’s the endless cycle of baking gluten, egg, and dairy-free. You can never think you have arrived because there is always something new to learn,...
Easy Vegan Fudge

Easy Vegan Fudge

Vegan fudge…. This fudge is decadent. It’s rich. It melts in your mouth. Need I say more? And it’s only 5 ingredients (not counting the nuts because I know some peope don’t like them…shame!) Now, don’t get held up over the fact that coconut cream is used in this recipe. I know it only makes sense...

These Raw White Chocolate Bones give a whole new meaning to having a freezer full of bones. What? Is it...
Raw Caramel Apples

Raw Caramel Apples

Trick-or-Treat! Thank you to those who have been asking about my whereabouts in the past 3 days. You know me so well to know that something must have been up for me to not be around during MoFo/and my HAL*RAW*WEEN theme. The truth is that I poorly prepared for my niece’s visit from this weekend...
