Soft Non Dairy Cream Filling Recipe
In a Medium sauce pan combine;
- 3/4 cup cocoa
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup "Coffee Mate" non-dairy creamer
...bring to a boil.
Set aside 1 tsp salt and 3 tsp vanilla to be added later (less salt if desired).
Once at a boil reduce heat to a simmer, allow to simmer until all the sugar is dissolved. Once the sugar is dissolved, bring back to a boil and add salt and vanilla beating vigorously as you add.
Freeze. Once frozen, use as a filling for cream chocolates.
That sounds like a good option for those who can't have dairy.
I suppose you could exchange the vanilla for different flavored extracts if you want maple filling, or strawberry filling, etc.
What is the texture like? Is it similar to a regular cream filling?
Do you put the mixture in a container to freeze, or do you let it cool and form balls first before freezing? Any more details you can add would be appreciated.
