Molds

R103 Vegan Pralines 101

Ideally, molds for pralines should be made out of silicone. There are molds especially for pralines, but they are often quite expensive. Ice cube trays work just fine for this.

Chocolate

The darker the chocolate, the likelier it is that it’s vegan. Use rich, dark chocolate from the supermarket, that’s not expensive. If you want to use vegan white or “whole milk” chocolate, check out online shops or wholefood shops where you’ll find them.

Preparation

R103 Vegan Pralines 101

To melt chocolate, you’ll have to heat up everything in a bain-marie. Therefor you’ll need two pots, one slightly larger than the other one. Fill in water in the large pot (it’s enough if it’s filled with a quarter of water) and put the smaller pot on it. This is where the chocolate will get heated in. Be careful, that the chocolate does not get in contact with water directly or it will clump.

Melting chocolate

To melt chocolate real creamy, it’s always good to add some more fat. This can be vegan butter, but we love to use coconut oil. Plantbased milk is tricky, since we experienced some trouble with it ourselves. Experience a bit yourself to find your favorite way to melt chocolate.

Vegan Orep Pralines

Vegan Oreo Pralines

12 - 15 Pralines 45 minutes (+ time to chill)

Ingredients

  • 150 g (5 oz) vegan dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

FOR THE FILLING

  • 12 Oreo cookies (only cream)
  • 50 g (2 oz) vegan white chocolate
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Heat dark chocolate and coconut oil in a baine-marie.
  2. Now there are two ways to get pralines filled later. Number 1: Fill in liquid chocolate into your pralines molds, then turn over and let all surplus chocolate drip off. Make sure so put a bowl under it, so you can use all the chocolate again later on. Number 2: For me, it's easier to just add a small spoon of melted chocolate into a praline mold and cover the mold all over, yet leave enough space to fill it later.
  3. If you've covered all praline molds, cool down in the fridge for 30 minutes and prepare filling in the meantime.
  4. For the filling melt Oreo cream, white chocolate and coconut oil in a bain-marie and let it cool afterwards for 2-3 minutes. Check your pralines. If the chocolate all around has hardened, you can fill in cream-chocolate-mix but leave some space on top.
  5. Again, put it in the fridge for 30 more minutes. In the meantime, melt again the rest of the dark chocolate so it gets liquid again. Let it cool for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Now use this chocolate to cover your pralines and let them rest in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  7. If you like, you can drizzle some more chocolate on them, when they are done.
