Vegan Double-Crust Chocolate Fudge Bars

My little brother became a vegan some time ago and since then he has really gotten into baking. My elder brother and SIL bought him Chloes Vegan Desserts* for Christmas and my family have been reaping the benefits of this ever since. Another reason I wish my family lived closer, vegan cake deliveries from my brother! 

I recently took a trip to Brighton with one of my sisters whilst she took a look around the uni. My brother sent up some of these chocolate fudge bars with her and we were munching on them all weekend, my gosh they are delicious




Vegan Double-Crust Chocolate Fudge Bars
Makes 16 2-inch Bars

Note: The bars will need to be chilled for 8 hours overnight before serving.

Shortbread Crust
2 cups all-purpose flour ½ cup sugar
1 cup Vegan Margarine ½ teaspoon salt

Filling
¾ cups canned coconut milk ¼ cup sugar
1 bar vegan cooking chocolate                        
½ cup chopped walnuts
Chocolate (about 2 cups) (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180’c/350 degrees.
Lightly grease an 8-inch pan and line with parchment paper.

To make the shortbread crust: 
In a large bowl, mix flour, margarine, sugar, and salt until crumbly and sticky. Reserve 1 cup of dough for topping, and press the remainder into the prepared pan.

To make filling: 
In a medium saucepan, combine coconut milk, cooking chocolate and sugar. Stir over low heat until the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and stir in walnuts.

To make bars: 
Poor the filling over the unbaked crust and place clumps of remaining dough over the top.

Bake for 35 minutes, let cool and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours. Once chilled lift the parchment paper to release the bars from the pan (or cut them out if you don’t have parchment), and cut into 2-inch bars with a sharp knife. Serve.
