Vegan chocolate turron, a plant-based version of this Spanish Christmas dessert, made with just 3 ingredients: dark chocolate, coconut oil and hazelnuts.
The most popular Christmas desserts here in Spain are turron, polvorones and mantecados. Turron is a confection, which is typically made of honey, sugar, egg white and almonds or other nuts, but there are so many versions and chocolate turron is my favorite one and also extremely popular.
To make this vegan chocolate turron you just need 3 ingredients: dark chocolate, coconut oil and hazelnuts, but any nut will do and it’s also usually made with puffed rice or cookies. Coconut oil is my favorite oil for this recipe, as it goes really well with chocolate, unlike extra virgin olive oil, which has a super strong taste.
