Vegan Christmas: Chocolate Lebkuchen Hearts

Kopernik chocolate lebkuchen

Kopernik brand 'pierniki' as the Polish say, but better known as lebkuchen. We couldn't find vegan lebkuchen from Germany this year, but we found these Polish ones at an independent deli. Lebkuchen are made from a sort of gingerbread and are often coated in chocolate, sometimes filled with fruit puree, and commonly heart shaped... these ones are all of that.

These lebkuchen are extra-cheap... less than a pound a bag. It does show a little in the quality...with the gingerbread just a little too firm and dry. The apricot puree filling is nice enough and serves to soften and sweeten the gingerbread. The plain chocolate coating is thin, like with most lebkuchen, but sweet enough to make these enjoyable.

It's a pity that the Lidl lebkuchen contain milk fat this year, as they are far superior, but that dairy waste has so go somewhere. Let's hope we get a broader choice next Christmas. For this year, these are cheap and cheerful lebkuchen and they can still enjoy a tick on your shopping list.

Look out for them at Polish shops and delis... there are quite few of them around in the UK now.

Verdict: Cheap -n- Cheerful
