The Tale of Two Star-Crossed Lovers. The true story of how vegan Mr. Goodbars came to be… Two youngsters, divided by the hatred of their rivalry gangs (Think Capulets vs. Montagues; Sharks vs. Jets; Tupac vs. Biggie Smalls)
and the love they secretly feel for each other.
Watch to see what happens when they follow their destiny…
and follow the love they have for each other. Nothing, not even evil, can keep these two from the grip of one another’s embrace. The union of Salty and Sweet brings to you:
The Mr. Goodbar Sometimes the old saying: “The simpler, the better” is true. All you need is something sweet; something salty–and that is it–and you’ll have one happy clam. (What does “Happy as a clam” mean anyway? Last I checked, clams never died from smiling too much…) **This question has nothing to do with my topic** So let’s please the 2 out of 5 elements of our tastebud taste perceptions as we indulge the salty and sweet treats I know you all crave and love.
Your vegan Mr. Goodbars await you:Print
- 1/2 c. vegan chocolate, melted
- 1/4 c. dry roasted, lightly salted peanuts
- candy mold (optional)
- Coat the candy mold with a thin layer of chocolate, making sure the bottom and sides are completely coated.
- Add the peanuts and then fill the rest with chocolate.
- Freeze for 15 minutes or until set.
If you are not using a mold, Place a piece of parchment paper and line an 8×8 pan. Coat with thin layer of chocolate first. Add 2nd layer of peanuts. Lots of them! Coat with rest of chocolate until peanuts are covered. Freeze 10 minutes. Cut with serated knife to break off pieces.
Making homemade candy bars at home is super simple and easy to do. I highly recommend purchasing some fun chocolate candy bar molds because it adds to the effect…and yes, it makes them taste better. Just kidding. Kinda. If you don’t want to buy molds you can also treat this recipe like a chocolate bark. Follow how you assemble this recipe using the melted chocolate and peanuts and now you have a vegan Mr. Goodbar chocolate bark.
My adult version of this childhood favorite is to pair it with a nice cup of coffee. This is only for the real mature, however. Do not attempt unless you are of age.
