Decadent Chocolate Pate

April 4, 2009

Smooth, rich, and oh-so-decadent, this chocolate pâté will win over even the staunchest dessert lover.  And it’s incredibly easy, as well as good for you!

This recipe is from Sweet Freedom: Desserts You’ll Love without Wheat, Eggs, Dairy or Refined Sugar, available here.

On the left, vegan macaroons: chewy, intensely coconut, these macaroons will rival any you may have had filled with eggs and sugar.  According to one Bake It Healthy customer, these “are the best I’ve ever tasted!”  On the right, cashew chocolate chip cookies: a shortbread-like base studded with dairy free chocolate chips.  For the second recipe, see the original post  here.
