  • 240 mL (1 cup) non-dairy milk
  • 14 g (2 tbsp) cornstarch
  • 25 g (2 tbsp) sugar
  • 12 g (1½ tbsp) cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 25 g (2½ tbsp) chocolate

Cinnamon Sugar Twists

  • 37 g (3 tbsp) sugar
  • 12 g (1½ tbsp) cinnamon
  • 1 can Pillsbury Country Biscuits
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) vegan butter, melted

Marshmallow Dip

  • 30 g (3 tbsp) chopped dark chocolate
  • 10 marshmallows, (depends on size of dish)

Board Toppings

  • peanut butter
  • pretzels
  • Ritz crackers
  • plain Ruffles chips
  • waffle cones, broken into pieces
  • Mini Chips Ahoy cookies
  • chocolate bar
  • strawberries, sliced
  • banana, sliced

Instructions

Chocolate Pudding

  • To make your chocolate pudding, combine the non-dairy milk, cornstarch, sugar, and cocoa powder in a sauce pan. Whisk it until the cornstarch dissolves completely and there are no lumps.
  • Once it is all combined, bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, making sure to whisk frequently.
  • Once the mixture starts to bubble and you feel it getting thicker, reduce heat to low and whisk continuously for 30-60 seconds until the pudding thickens.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and chocolate. Whisk until chocolate is melted.
  • Transfer to jars or container and cover. Refrigerate for a couple hours to set.
  • If you have them, you can also top this with some Oreo crumbs, but that’s completely optional

Cinnamon Sugar Twists

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • To make the cinnamon sugar twists, remove Pillsbury country biscuits from the package.
  • Cut the biscuits in half to divide the dough. Roll each half it a long log. Fold the log in half and twist. Seal the ends by pressing the dough together.
  • Coat each twist in melted vegan butter and toss in dish of cinnamon sugar.
  • Place on lined baking sheet and bake for 10mins.

Marshmallow Dip

  • To make the marshmallow dip, add the chopped chocolate to the bottom of an oven safe dish. On top, add the marshmallows to fill the dish.
  • Bake at 375F for about 10 mins or until the marshmallows are golden and soft, and chocolate has melted. If you find that your marshmallows don’t stay gooey between baking and serving time, you can pop it into the microwave for 15-20 seconds to help soften it again.
  • If your peanut butter is too hard for dipping, soften it by heating it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, watching carefully and stirring. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also drizzle a bit of the putting on the top of the peanut butter and make a swirl with it using a toothpick.
  • Assemble the board by placing the the s’mores dip, pudding, and peanut butter, then surround them with your sweet and salty dipping snacks. We started with the cinnamon sugar twists, then some pretzels, ritz crackers which are vegan in Canada, plain ruffled chips, waffle cone pieces, pieces of vegan chocolate, mini chips ahoy Cookies which are vegan in Canada, and some strawberries and banana slices.
