How to Make Your Own Trail Mix

Do you love trail mix? Have you ever considered making your own? Now is the time! Making your own trail mix is super easy, and it’s better than purchasing pre-made versions at the grocery store. When you make your own trail mix, you can change the ratio of ingredients to include more of your favorites, and have better control over what goes into it to begin with.
Here is what you will need to make your own trail mix:
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 cup chopped cashews (or almonds)
1 cup raisins
1 cup vegan chocolate
Here is what you need to do with the ingredients: Simply mix it all in a container. There’s your trail mix! You can store it in an air-tight container for a couple of weeks, if needed, or use it right away. Trail mix makes a great snack to take on hikes, put in the kids’ lunch, or carry with you for when you need a quick pick-me-up.
One of the great things about trail mix is that you can put whatever you want in it. Some optional ingredients include shredded coconut, popcorn, chocolate-covered pretzels, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, Chex cereal, etc. Just make sure you have a combination of sweet and salty, and that you have various textures in the mix. If you like more peanuts, add more. If you like fewer almonds, scale back on those. Try different combinations until you find one that you can’t resist!
At Premium Chocolatiers, we specialize in providing top-of-the-line vegan chocolates. Our products do not contain any milk derivitives, gelatin, eggs, or any other animal products. If you make your own trail mix once, you will never want to buy the pre-made store options again! Contains Nuts.

Simple Vegan Chocolate Frosting Recipe

If you need a vegan chocolate frosting, there is no need to head out to the store. If you purchase the store-bought ones, you are likely to find ingredients in it that you may not want, such as hydrogenated oils. Making vegan chocolate frosting at home is super simple. This recipe is for a vegan chocolate frosting, or you can use it as a vegan chocolate ganache. Whether you are using it to frost a cake, cupcakes or cookies, it is simple and sure to please!

Here is what you will need to make a simple vegan chocolate frosting:

28 ounces of vegan chocolate bars
1/3 cup of vegan milk (e.g., soy, almond, coconut, etc.)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla

You will need to melt the vegan chocolate. You can do this either by using a double boiler on the stove or by using the microwave. If you are using the microwave, set it to cook for 10 seconds, stop and stir, then repeat until all the vegan chocolate has melted. Once the vegan chocolate has melted, either in a double boiler or in the microwave, add the milk and vanilla and stir thoroughly. At this point, the vegan chocolate frosting will be warm, but cool enough to start spreading on your cake or using on your other baked goods.

For the vegan chocolate bars that you need to make the frosting, you may want to try our dark semisweet bars, which come six to a pack, or milkless-the bar, which also comes in a six-pack. Both options work well in this recipe to create a vegan chocolate frosting that you can use in a variety of ways. And if you are feeling a little more adventurous, consider using our polar dream white chocolate bar. With this option, you can choose the color of your chocolate frosting!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Hot Chocolate

With October here I am starting to think about warm sweaters, falling leaves, hay rides and creamy hot chocolate. But in our house it has to be gluten free dairy free Hot Chocolate. I think the best way to make a delicious, creamy gluten free dairy free hot chocolate is to use coconut milk and almond, which is delicious anyway and makes hot chocolate even better.
