These Peppermint Patties are Gluten Free and Vegan. And they are good. Even to someone who does not care for the idea of chocolate and mint. Someone who is Jewish and does not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Likes them. And ate too many.
A slice of this cake is like Christmas on a plate. It’s so full of Southern holiday cheer and seasonal flavor that we want to break out in Christmas carols, and we cannot get enough of the chocolate and peppermint duo in its creamy cheesecake form.
These delicate sweet meringues become a refreshing treat. This vegan version of the French classic uses aquafaba, the leftover cooking liquid from chickpeas or other light-colored beans, in place of egg whites.
