Vegan Salted Caramel & Chocolate Tartelettes

Vegan Salted Caramel Chocolate Tartelettes - #GO Veggie! #Vegan #Valentines #Chocolate #Caramel

Nothing says “I love you” like something, anything, made from scratch. It doesn’t matter what it is.

Yes, roses are beautiful, store bought chocolates are decadent and delicious and jewelry is, well, expensive. But there’s something special about receiving a gift made just for you. About the fact that someone put some thought into it and took the time to actually make it themselves. That, friends, shows true love.

For us, that is particularly true when it comes to food. Cooking is how we share our love. How we show we care. Which is the main reason why we started this blog.

Over the years we’ve learned to tweak our recipes so all of our guests, especially those with dietary restrictions, could enjoy them. A few years ago that might have been a daunting task. But not anymore, thanks to all the amazing products available on the market.

We love to discover and experiment with new products. But, just like any good home cook, we have our “staples”. Those products we always go for and won’t change, because we know always work.

When it comes to dairy free cooking, one of our go to products is GO Veggie! Dairy Free Cream Cheese Alternative. It’s not only super versatile and a perfect alternative to its dairy counterpart, but it’s also completely dairy free and vegan, gluten and preservative free and, one of our favorite things, non-GMO. And if you’ve been following our blog for a while now, you know one of our goals is to keep our ingredients as natural and “clean” as possible.
We’ve teamed up with our friends at GO Veggie! to bring you this super decadent recipe today: a vegan salted caramel and chocolate tart. We used GO Veggie!’s plain cream cheese alternative here to make the creamy, truffle like chocolate filling, and we added it to the tart dough to make it extra flaky and “buttery”. All natural, all vegan. A perfect way to show someone you care :)
Enjoy!!

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Kosher / Vegan
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • Crust
  • 1¼ cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp GO Veggie! Classic Plain Cream Cheese Alternative
  • 1½ tbsp granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tbsp ice water
  • Caramel
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup full fat coconut milk (not beverage)
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ⅛ tsp Himalayan Pink Salt (you can also use regular sea salt)
  • Chocolate filling
  • 7oz vegan chocolate chunks (about ¾ cup)
  • ⅓ cup full fat coconut milk (not beverage)
  • ½ cup plus 2 tbsp GO Veggie! Classic Plain Cream Cheese Alternative
  • 2-3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (use 3 for a stronger cocoa taste)
  • 1 tsp scotch or bourbon (optional)
Instructions
  1. To make the crust:
  2. Combine flour, coconut oil, vegan cream cheese, sugar and salt in a food processor. Pulse a few times it has the consistency of coarse corn meal
  3. Add water and keep pulsing until it forms a dough (Note: if the crumbs don’t come together in the food processor, but they do when you pinch them with your fingers, place them on a floured surface and knead with your hands until it forms a soft dough)
  4. Divide the dough in 6 pieces. Roll out each piece on a floured surface into a round disk big enough to fit into a tartellette mold, about ⅛ inch thick (trim the excess if necessary). Prick the dough with a fork and refrigerate for 20 minutes
  5. In the meantime, preheat oven to 350F. Bake chilled dough for about 25 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside to cool
  6. To make the caramel:
  7. Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Cook at medium heat for about 9-10 minutes, whisking constantly, until it thickens and turns a golden color. Set aside
  8. To make the chocolate filling:
  9. Place chocolate chunks in a heat proof bowl. Bring coconut milk to a simmer and poor over chocolate, stirring constantly until it's completely melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
  10. In a medium bowl, whip vegan cream cheese with an electric mixer at medium speed. Reduce speed, add cocoa powder and melted chocolate and mix until well incorporated. Fold in scotch or bourbon (if using)
  11. To assemble the tart:
  12. Spoon chocolate filling onto the tarts. Pour caramel over and sprinkle with salt. Drizzle melted chocolate for decoration
Notes
If you have any leftover dough and filling, use it to make fabulous chocolate filled sandwich cookies! Roll out the dough, cut out circles with a cookie cutter and bake until golden brown. Let them cool and fill with chocolate.

    The chocolate inside looks amazing! I can’t believe how many new health foods there are on the market. Love posts like this that introduce me to some of them. Otherwise I walk up and down the aisles at Whole Foods amazed at everything I see, but not knowing what I should buy or what I should do with what I buy.

      Yes, absolutely! There are so many new products on the market, that it can be totally overwhelming. We love to test them and “experiment” with them. The filling in this tart is super rich and creamy. You would never believe it’s dairy free!

  8. Consuelo @ Honey & Figs February 12, 2014 at 4:01 pm #

    Homemade desserts are always the most perfect gift <3 I can't get over how delicious these tartelettes look. The filling is so creamy that I'd never have said it'd be vegan! That cheese does sound really really amazing indeed : )

    I totally agree — homemade gifts are best. They come from the heart! These tartlettes look amazing, and it really is nice that we can make sweets for loved ones (or ourselves) that are gluten free and vegan so easily!

    • Vicky & Ruth February 18, 2014 at 3:25 pm #

      I think people with dietary restriction really appreciate the thought. Thank goodness for all the amazing products available nowadays!
