- 2/3 cup of coconut milk fat (from a chilled can, no water)

- 1/2 cup + 2tbsp pureed extra firm mori tofu (could be made with another type of silken tofu, just squeeze extra water out out it)
- 1/2 cup sugar
-2 tsp vanilla extract

*-Soak Agar in coffee and for a few minutes to soften then boil till dissolved, blend till fully emulsified and all agar is completely dissolved.
- Add back into saucepan, add cocoa powder and whisk till all lumps are gone.
- Add coconut milk, and sugar, lightly simmer and whisk till all the sugar is dissolved.
- Add chocolate and again stir till combined and smooth.
- Pour saucepan contents into the blender, add coconut oil, tofu puree and vanilla extract.
-Blend until smooth and emulsified, pour right away into cooked and cooled pie/cookie shell.

Sweet potato coconut mousse

-2/3 cup coconut milk from a room temperature shaken can.
-1tbsp agar flakes
-1tbsp vanilla extract

-Soak agar flakes in the coconut milk, till softened then simmer till agar begins to dissolve then blend till agar is completely dissolved.
-Add sugar, blend again, till dissolved.

Gorey, gooey vegan pizza intestine to spook your friends on Halloween!

-3 cups white unbleached flour
-1 tsp instant yeast
-1 tbsp sugar
-1/2 tsp salt

Mix all dry ingredient's in a bowl, then slowly add enough water to water to form dough 1/3 cup cheddar daiya, 1/3 cup mozzarella daiya, 1/2 a pack of yves veggie pepperoni, chop the rounds in half. 1/2 cup of your favorite pizza sauce.
  Let the dough rest for about 10 mins (we don't want it to rise or it'll puff up and will not look very "intestine"- like. Roll out very long and thin like this: it needs to be over 3 feet long. Do it on a well floured surface.
Put daiya cheese on first, then add the pepperoni, top with sauce. Just like this:
Brush a little water all along the edges, flip over the ends. roll into a log and pinch the edges till sealed.

Brush oil on lined pan, plus coat with flour. Form into an "intestine" shape as shown: on the lined pan.
Brush with water, then oil. If there are not a few crack's in the dough to begin with, make a few small cuts so the sauce will leak a little, makes it look more gory! Bake till golden and crispy about 1/2 an hour, in a per-heated over at 350° It should look like this:
