Chocolate Hemp Squares
MORE cookie squares? Yes, and these include Manitoba Harvest Hemp Seed Nut butter.
These are my Chocolate Hemp Squares from Vive le Vegan!. I decided to break down the simple steps in photos for you today, shown below.
First is the combination of nut butters and maple syrup in the pan. Then the the cereal crumbs (whizzed in a mini-processor) are stirred in and the mixture is pressed into a square pan lined with parchment. Remember I showed the trick of lining a square pan with parchment? Well, here it is with the corners folded in after cutting. The next photo shows me beginning to press the mixture around the pan with a bit of leftover parchment, to keep it from sticking... then into the fridge for some cooling while preparing the topping. Next, in a saucepan, the chocolate chips are combined with the non-dairy milk. When smooth this chocolate goodness is poured over the base and tilted back and forth to even out... then back into the fridge to cool completely.
