These days, I am doing a LOT of business on Insta and so to get a message from Elsie, the founder and chocolate creator at Alouss chocolate about featuring their vegan coconut milk chocolate bar in a recipe was something I was pretty happy to take on board. I had already tried their amazing bean to bar chocolate in my subscription box from Bean Bar You. (Get onto that as well) so I was totally up for the challenge. This is the result. Not quite sugar free, but seriously, grain free, dairy free and soooo yummy.
If you were having a moment where the dairy free thing didn't bother you, you could totally replace the peanut butter with my Notella Spread...just to make it even more chocolatey! (But you didn't hear it from me....MORE chocolatey, I mean...is that a thing?)
