Chocolate Soup topped with Raspberry Whipped Cream

So, there's this contest that is happening over at Fork and Beans that's all about Valentine's Day.  The recipes need to be gluten-free and vegan, the more allergy-friendly the better...that's easy-peasy for me. :)  So, here's my submission...Chocolate Soup.  I've also listed one topping idea to add to the soup, Raspberry Whipped Cream, and it was divine, and I ate way too much of it, and no, I don't regret it. :)

 
Can I just say, holy cow!  It turned out amazing.  It's thicker and richer than Hot Chocolate, hence the soup name.  And it's exactly what I needed, or at least, what I think I needed. ;)  This would be awesome for a dessert party or get together of some sort.  Everyone can bring a topping or mix-in to share, line all the toppings up and you have a Chocolate Soup Bar...he he, doesn't that just sound delicious?


Chocolate Soup
5 cups So Delicious Original Coconut Milk Beverage
1 (10 oz) package Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate mini chips
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup tapioca starch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water

Directions:
Combine the coconut milk, chocolate chips and sugar in a saucepan.  Heat over medium heat until the mixture is smooth and just begins to come to a boil.  Add in the vanilla and the tapioca starch slurry.  Stir until the mixture thickens and is smooth.  Remove from heat and ladle into bowls.  The fun part is to add the mix-ins and toppings.  Top with fresh fruit, crushed gluten-free cookies, chocolate chips, homemade vegan marshmallows, chopped nuts, if tolerated, or Raspberry Whipped Cream (recipe below, if nuts are tolerated).

    1. I absolutely love this whipped topping, it does have nuts--almonds and cashews, which gives the soup an amazing nutty flavor when you add it. Add in the raspberries and it's heaven. :)

  2. I always love waffles and I was surprised to find out that August 24th is National Waffle Day. Well I should be celebrating that since the waffle is my favourite quick treat. The day is the anniversary of the first US patent of the waffle iron which was submitted by Cornelius Swarthout.
