“Vegan Coconut Ghost Candies”
Beware! Ghouls and ghosts—and assorted comic book heroes—will be prowling the streets tonight, so if your proton pack is on the fritz, stay safe inside this Halloween, and enjoy these “Vegan Coconut Ghost Candies,” made with Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese. Boo!
4 oz. Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
4 Tbsp. vegan butter
1 1.2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups shredded, unsweetened coconut
4 cups vegan powdered sugar
1/4 cup vegan powdered sugar (for coating)
1/4 cup of finely ground coconut (for coating)
vegan mini chocolate chips
Method of Preparation:
In a medium sized bowl, cream together the Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, vegan butter and vanilla. We used a hand mixer and blended until homogenous.
Add in the 2 3/4 cups of shredded coconut, and half of the 4 cups of powdered sugar, blend with the hand mixer. Add the other half of the powdered sugar and mix again until blended.
Chill the mixture in the fridge for no more than five minutes.
After chilled, shape into little ghosts. It is easy to start with a small sized round ball, and pinch the top to form the head of the ghost. Repeat this until you have about 25-30 small ghosts.
In a bowl, combine together the 1/4 cup vegan powdered sugar and the 1/4 cup of finely ground coconut. Use this to coat the outside of your little ghosts.
Press in the mini vegan chocolate chips as eyes. Chill the ghosts in the fridge before serving. Store them in an air tight container in the fridge.
Enjoy this fun, Halloween inspired confection!
