I love lemon yoghurt, no wonder I went all crazy when a vegan lemon yoghurt version hit German supermarkets. I had bought 2 big cups so I thought why not incorporate it into my baking somehow? So I came up with the idea of a Lemon Cheesecake Chocolate bar. I don’t know how you feel about it but simply the name sounded so tempting me. So I went with it!
As for the mould – I have used a silicone chocolate mould which took me ages to find. This mould has 6 tiny chocolate moulds. So if you have a mould for an entire choc bar (which I never managed to actually find) perfect!
Lemon Cheesecake Chocolate Bar
- 20 g cocoa butter
- 40 g dark dairyfree chocolate (I use Ombar Chocolate)
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp plant based flavored yoghurt ( I used the Alpro Lemon Yoghurt)
- 1 tsp chia/ flaxseed flour ( used the nu3 chia flour) – if you use flaxseed flour make sure it is very fine
Transfer your chocolate mould into the freezer first. Melt the dark chocolate with the cocoa butter in a double boiler. Add a pinch of salt here. Now take out your chocolate mould, put it on a tray – the moulds are so wobbly so this will stabilize the whole thing. Add one teaspoon of melted chocolate into every mould. Now you grab your mould and swirl it around so the warm chocolate goes into all the corners and the sides of the mould. This way you don’t have any holes in the chocolate or missing edges. Return to the freezer. Now in a small bowl mix 2 tablespoons lemon yoghurt with 1 teaspoon of chia or flaxseed flour. The mixture will thicken up quite a bit. This is great – this is what we want! A mousse like texture to fill our choc bar.
Remove the chocolate mould from the fridge and spread the lemon yoghurt cream into the mould. Leave a tiny bit of space on top so there is still room for the remaining chocolate to ‘close’ the bar. Once you have doen the filling part grab the bowl with the remaining melted chocolate and pour it on top. Make sure it is covered evenly. Now return it to the freezer and wait for 20 minutes. Then take it out and carefully remove the chocolates. They are quite delicate but I did not mind that. I just love love the taste of it! The chocolates keep fresh in the freezer for 3-4 days. Enjoy!
