Vegan Coconut Mochi Bites

I had leftover coconut milk and wanted to make a snack, so I did what everyone does…Google it!

I found a recipe from Drive Me Hungry that was perfect.

The Coconut Mochi Bites are very cute and, if made in a mini muffin pan, truly are bite size! `

If you want to make them non- vegan, you can spread chocolate on them for an extra step of decadence. I had some peanut butter cups that I melted down and spread on top a few of the bites. Ooooh, dark chocolate would be an excellent spread, and a I would think a Hazelnut spread would also be delicious!

Bake time is around 45 minutes so give it some time.

Cinnamon Pepper Brownies

Dessert! This is my favorite hack to jazz up boxed brownie mix. ┬áTake your regular box brownie mix, follow the mix instructions, then add a smidge of cream, a tsp or more of Saigon cinnamon and about 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and smoked jalepeno pepper. Eat it warm and you’ll faster taste the cinnamon, and then you’ll feel the warmth from the papers at the back of your throat! Add some whipped cream to balance out the chocolate. Delicious!
