Ice Cream Bites and Vegan Chocolate Syrup

This is one of those recipes that’s hardly even a recipe. If you use chocolate chips instead of making your own chocolate sauce, it’s even less of a recipe! Like most kids, mine will eat ice cream anytime – when it’s snowing, in the middle of a heat wave, when it’s raining, whenever. So this after school treat in March in Canada should not be surprising.

The reason I went with making my own syrup instead of using chocolate was only because I wanted to try out some vegan chocolate recipes – and this one was amazing.

To make the syrup all you do is mix the cornstarch with 2 tbsp of water and set it aside. Then whisk the cocoa and the water together, stir in the agave and the cornstarch mixture. Bring it to a boil and keep stirring till it’s thick enough to set up but thin enough to coat the ice cream sandwiches (OR you can just melt about a cup of chocolate chips and add a teeny bit of oil). Then assemble your little sandwiches! I cut each vanilla wafter in 3 pieces and used about a tablespoon or so of ice cream.

Now coat the little sandwiches with the chocolate syrup and pop in the fridge for a few hours till it’s set up. So so so good and such a fun surprise for the kids after school.
