Chocolate Gummy Snacks
« on: February 25, 2016, 03:24:00 am »
These treats are so unusual, not rich like chocolate but very creamy and more-ish. I wouldn't call them a dessert as such but probably the best category. Using only a few ingredients and a super quick process of adding all ingredients to your Thermomix setting it to warm and stir - then simply pouring into a tray or moulds to set in the fridge.  No clumps or dissolving the gelatin separately or over the stove (although you could still do this if you don't have a Thermy), these turn out smooth and perfect every time.

Makes: 12, depending on moulds or tray used

Ingredients

    250g coconut cream (270ml can)
    20g (2 tbsp) cacao
    20-40g rapadura (to taste)
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    20g (2 tbsp) gelatin powder

Method

    Add all ingredients to Thermomix : 50 deg, 3 min, speed 4
    Pour into silicone (or lined) tray or moulds, refrigerate for 30 min or more

They look amazing Eva, must check if I have some small moulds when I get home.

They look great & I'm thinking a nice alternative around Easter time.

Thanks KMW, I'm going to make these at Easter too. I think our local op shop had some Easter moulds, I should have bought them and am going to look again tomorrow, hopefully they are still there!

I've made these and they're in the fridge setting.  I found I had a very small dinosaur mould, I think it's going to be too small though and I'll have trouble removing the shape.  The excess I just poured into a small ice-cube tray so hopefully they'll pop out nicely.  What is your method of a clean removal please.

Having said that Eva, I must admit to only using 1 of the ingredients from your recipe (the vanilla).  I substituted the other ingredients with Carnation coconut milk, cocoa powder, raw sugar and gelatin leaves as I had none of the ingredient on your list.  I'll give them plenty of time in the fridge and will unmould them tomorrow.

Judy I've found that with some of my moulds I do for gummy lollies & looking out for some bigger moulds

I hope they remove nicely from your dinosaur mould and ice cube tray Judy. I have always used moulds or mini muffin trays made of silicon where you can bend it, and they pop out. The other way I've tried is with a tray and lined with paper, then when set, lifted the whole thing out with paper and sliced into squares. It might be tricky of your moulds aren't flexible but hopefully they will come out fine. I think some people use hot water under their mould to remove if it's difficult but I've never had to do this. I look forward to hearing how it worked for you and also with your ingredient modifications.

Thanks every one else for your comments too  8)

Here are the tiny dinosaurs, it's a silicon mould so they weren't too hard to remove.  Being so tiny though made it a bit difficult with the legs etc, I think the mould should be a lot bigger.  These would be great for decorating a birthday cake or cupcakes and the taste is lovely.  I'll unmould the slightly bigger ones from the ice-cube tray tomorrow.
