New Year’s Eve is always about great food and company, and this Traditional Danish NYE Wreath Cake – “Kransekage” is delightful for the 12 o’clock champagne. Here it is in a healthy whole foods vegan version. It’s made of a marzipan dough, dipped in chocolate and with sprinkle of cashew butter on top. It’s quite rich, so usually a half to one per person is enough. After all, you already had your whole x-course dinner and snacks before enjoying this baby at 12. HAPPY NEW YEAR 🎉

  • 200 g almonds
  • 12 juicy dates *
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 4 tbsp buckwheat flour
  • 1 pinch of vanilla powder


  • 40 g dark chocolate (we use 100%)
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter



  • Blend the almonds into flour. (Or use almond flour)
  • Pit the dates. Either blend the dates until smooth or mash them with a fork. Depending on their juiciness, you may need to add a little water.
  • Mix all ingredients for the dough.
  • Turn on the oven at 180°C conventional.
  • Split the dough into six pieces and form triangular shaped biscuits.
  • Place the pieces on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for about 12 minutes. They might seem light in colour, but the bottom will get a bit more brown.
  • Allow the pieces to cool down.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Once the pieces are cooled down, dip the bottom in chocolate and allow to cool on a baking ray. Place them on the side (chocolate side NOT facing the baking ray, but sideways), so they dont get indents in the chocolate.
  • Once the chocolate has hardened, place them on the serving plate and use a fork to decorate them with cashew butter lines. Be creative and have fun 🙂
  • Happy New Year 🎉


* If you use date puree from my recipe here, use 112 g and skip the 2 tbsp water. Add the water if dough is still too dry and not sticking firmly together.
