Vegan Chocolate Silk Pie Bites

My roommate has a chocolate silk pie recipe that has literally been passed down for generations and it is unreal, but it also unfortunately has dairy in it. I attempted to make a suitable substitute (can't quite call it a replacement) by combining nuts and chocolate. It was a simple enough idea, but the final result was more like a truffle bite than a chocolate pie. They are rich and incredibly decadent, but they sure are good.

Vegan Chocolate Silk Pie Bites

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

  • 12 oz vegan chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 cups cashews, soaked in hot water
  1. Line a mini muffin tin with liners. In a food processor, process the cashews until they form a thick cream. With the machine running, add the melted chocolate chips. Scrape down the bowl and process until combined. Scoop small amounts into each of the prepared cupcake liners. Allow the bites to set in the fridge or freezer for at least 30 minutes. They can be eaten frozen, although they are great at room temperature as well. Store any leftovers in the freezer.
