Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter; melted/softened
  • 3-4 large graham crackers
  • 1 cup organic coconut milk
  • 8 oz semisweet + bittersweet chocolate; broken into pieces I used 4 oz of each
  • 2 eggs*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • whipped cream store bought or homemade
  • chocolate curls or shavings on top semi-sweet, bittersweet or whatever you want!
  • chocolate sprinkles

Special equipment:

  • 4-5, 4.5 oz ramekins
  • If making the chocolate curls a vegetable peeler

Instructions

  • Using your food processor (or just place your graham crackers in a large ziplock bag and smash them and mix with the melted butter in a bowl), pulse the graham crackers until they become crumbs. Pour in the melted/softened butter and pulse a few times more to incorporate. Remove from the food processor and press down the graham cracker mixture into each ramekin and place in the refrigerator to chill.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk over medium heat. You just want to see the bubbles forming around the edge of the saucepan (heat just to the edge of boiling).
  • While the coconut milk is on the stove, using your blender, combine both the semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolate pieces, the eggs, and the vanilla extract and blend until smooth; for about 30 seconds. Slowly pour in the coconut milk and blend until everything is thoroughly combined, for about a minute or two.
  • Remove the ramekins from the refrigerator and pour the chocolate mixture into each ramekin, over the graham cracker crust, cover and chill for at least 4-6 hours — or overnight — until set.
  • When ready to serve, top with whipped cream and add chocolate curls and chocolate sprinkles on top. Enjoy!

To create the chocolate curls, simply microwave your chocolate for 10 seconds and use your vegetable peeler to shave and create chocolate curls. You can do this right over the chocolate cream pies, so the curls just land on top.
