Graveyard Pots, Dark Chocolate Pudding (raw, vegan, gluten-free)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites


I made these little morsels for our Halloween Party. They were devilishly good! I will post the recipe below but be warned: These are not for the faint-hearted….these are for those who are true chocolate lovers.

They lean more to the taste of dark chocolate than a milk chocolate and they are very rich! But trust me, they went like hot cakes.

This recipe came from James Russel who has amazing  recipe ebooks. He of course didn’t call them Graveyard Pots.  One tip on this recipe, DO NOT make a double batch.  It is very thick and your blender, even if it is a Vita-Mix, will only handle one batch at a time.

  • 1/2 cup Irish moss gel or kelp paste
  • 1/2 cup raw agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp tamari
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked
  • Small handful blueberries
  • 3/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • Pinch Himalayan pink salt


  1. In a high-powdered blender combine the Irish moss or kelp paste, agave, water, lemon juice, tamari, vanilla, cashews, blueberries, cacao powder and salt.  Blend until creamy smooth.
  2. Pour into individual pots/cups.  I found 3 oz cups at Target.  These are the perfect size giving your guests just enough to satisfy them.


One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage.  Daily I get questions regarding substitutions.  Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe.    I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family.  I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.

So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item.  Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient.   Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself.   So have fun, don’t be afraid,  and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.

    I am experimenting with irish moss and I noticed in another post that you said that using irish moss helps lessen the amount of nuts you use. If I have a nut-based, raw dessert that does not have irish moss as an ingredient, what is the substitution ratio, nuts to irish moss?

      Hello Laura,

      It’s hard to say because it will depend on the type of dessert it is… the overall texture and tastes that are expected. I don’t have a substation ratio that blankets all recipes. If I were to experiment with a recipe I would maybe start by reducing the nuts by 1/4 , adding the Irish moss in its place.

      Have a wonderful weekend! amie sue
