We all know that the holiday season is a time for family, and with family fun, can mean we are all a bit behind on our cooking and baking for the upcoming holiday weekend! If you want a sweet treat, but is guilt-free and vegan, PLUS super easy to make, I created these no-bake, vegan peppermint brownie Scottie dogs!
My favorite cookie cutter in my grandma’s collection growing up was a sweet little Scottie dog. I wanted to use him for my treats this weekend (you can of course use any small cookie cutter shape that brings you joy)! For my chocolate “brownie” base, I used sunflower butter and chocolate GoMacro bars:
GoMacro bars are vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free. Plus, they are organic, super delicious, and the perfect chewy texture to mimic a brownie (but without all that refined sugar).
I used my Scottie dog cookie cutter to cut my Scottie dogs. Each bar makes one Scottie dog. I used two bars to make these three, since I used my leftover GoMacro scraps to mold into the third dog!
To frost the chocolate Scottie dogs, I got a coconut whipped cream. There are many vegan whipped toppings you can find at just about any grocery store these days! Then, I put a large candy cane in a plastic bag, and smashed with the back of a spoon.
You simply frost them, then sprinkle with candy cane pieces! You will want to be sure to serve these no-bake peppermint brownies right away, as they can get too hard if placed in the fridge. These are the perfect, satisfying treat that you can enjoy in minutes, and tastes just like a frosted peppermint brownie! I hope you enjoy this year’s holiday season, and would love to see your pictures of your holiday treats – be sure to tag me on Instagram @thehealthymouse !
