A few months ago, my vegetarian boss decided to follow a strict vegan diet. (You may remember me mentioning her here.) Since that time, she has accepted a job in a different department and will making that transition in a few days. When we all found out about the change, a member of the communications team decided to put together a surprise going away party for her. I immediately volunteered to bring a dessert, thinking vegan cupcakes would be easy (and cheap) to come by. I was wrong. Very wrong.
After searching high and low for a good deal, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to attempt my first vegan dessert. I hopped online, did a quick search and found these bad boys. I headed out to Kroger and grabbed these basic ingredients to create this simple recipe.
After I started putting everything together, I realized that this was quite possibly one of the easiest desserts I’d ever made. Plus, the little wrappers made them look fancy. I highly recommend these, vegan or not, and definitely add the coconut and almonds. They really kick the flavor into high gear.
