One of my favorite holiday recipes is white chocolate pretzel mix with M & M’s, but I hadn’t been able to find any vegan M & M’s that I liked. Until now that is. I ordered these Unreal brand “dark chocolate crispy quinoa gems” from Vitacost, and they are perfect for my recipe!
The colors look pretty good and the candies taste great! The chocolate is definitely dark as you would expect from the name, and my mom and I both think it is a bit darker than a semi-sweet chocolate. We can only barely tell that there are crispy bits inside because the shell is crispy too, but that didn’t matter for my recipe.
Here is what the back of the bag looks like:
And, here are the ingredients and nutrition facts:
We definitely recommend this candy, and will be buying it again! I am so glad to be able to make my white chocolate pretzel mix again, and will be sharing the recipe in my next post. Here is a sneak peek photo (with the chocolate tinted light pink for Valentine’s Day):
