These vegan no-bake chocolate caramel tarts are just pure decadence.

I got the recipe idea from a Tasty video I saw on facebook, and thought – hey! That could easily be veganized! You know, as you do.

It’s a simple 3-layer chocolate caramel tart, starting with a crushed oreo base and then a gooey caramel center and topped with chocolate ganache.

The caramel center is tricky, it involves boiling sugar, and boiling sugar is always a bit tricky. I didn’t use a sugar thermometer this time – usually if I’m boiling sugar, I want to know exactly what temperature I should boil it to, and that is why my honeycomb crunchies and my vegan fudge come out so well!

But this was the much more vague ‘watching the color of the boiling sugar’ method. Tricky.
Vegan no-bake chocolate caramel tarts with a crushed oreo cookie base, a gooey caramel center and a chocolate ganache topping.

For the Crusts:
  • 24 Oreos
  • 1/4 cup (56g) Vegan Butter/Margarine
  • For the Caramel Centers:
  • 1.5 cups (150g) Sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Water
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Coconut Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla

For the Chocolate Ganache Topping:
  • 7oz (200g) Vegan Dark Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Coconut Cream

For Decoration:
  • Dried Coconut

  1. Crush the oreos into fine crumbles either in a food processor or by placing them into a ziplock bag and rolling over them repeatedly with a rolling pin.
  2. Melt the vegan butter and pour over the crushed oreos and mix in.
  3. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray and cut strips of parchment paper and press down into each muffin partition. The non-stick spay will help the strips of parchment paper to stick.
  4. Spoon out equal amounts of oreo crumbles on top and press down with your fingers, carefully working it up the sides. Place into the freezer to set for 2 hours.
  5. When the 2 hours is almost up, prepare your caramel.
  6. Add sugar and water to a pot. Turn on the heat and leave it to boil – do not stir. Boil it until the color changes to a deep amber (about 10 minutes). The color will start to change and will quickly cycle through the color stages, lightest amber, medium amber and then a deep amber, remove it immediately when it reaches this stage as seconds later it will be burnt.
  7. As soon as you take it off the heat add in the coconut cream and vanilla and stir in vigorously. Be very careful as it rapidly foams up up as soon as you add in the coconut cream. Make sure you are stirring with a long wooden spoon so won’t get burnt.
  8. Divide the caramel mixture between the tarts. Freeze for 1 hour to set.
  9. When the caramel has set (it doesn’t set all the way it is still gooey), then it’s time to prepare your chocolate ganache topping.
  10. Break the chocolate into pieces and add to bowl. Heat the coconut cream to a simmer and then pour it over the chocolate. Leave it for a minute to give the chocolate a chance to melt and then whisk it up with a hand whisk into a thick chocolate sauce.
  11. Pour this over the top of the caramel and place into the fridge to set for 1 hour before serving.
  12. Sprinkle dried coconut over the top to decorate.

*Prep time excludes time spent setting in the freezer and fridge.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
