Vegan Golden Turmeric White Chocolates

Eric and I recently went to the Minneapolis Institute of Art because it was a super cold day and doing things outside isn't so fun when it is below 10F degrees. That place is amazing. So many beautiful and historic pieces of art, and it is so large that you could get lost in there. Every time I go I see something new even the things that haven't necessarily changed because it is such a large building. We spent a few hours in there enjoying the art and artifacts, and then they were closing and since we had a long walk to our car in the cold, we decided that warm drinks were the way to go, and so we stopped at Spyhouse coffee which was near by.

I had never been in there, but I was pleased that they had vegan options for their drinks besides just plain tea like some coffee shops. I don't usually get fancy drinks, but a their golden turmeric latte caught my eye. It was amazing. Made with oat milk, turmeric of course, ginger, maple syrup, and a hint of black pepper. Sooo good. And I loved that it was served in an actual porcelain cup and not a paper one. I haven't been to anything but a Caribou or Starbucks for a long long time so that was rare. Anyways, this drink was so good that I have since made my own version at home a couple of times since that was a few weekends ago, and I decided that the flavors would be amazing in a dessert as well.

So, I decided to make some Golden Turmeric White Chocolates! It was literally -30F below last wednesday morning and -20F for a high temperature so when I got off work the last thing I wanted to do was go outside and making some candy seemed like the perfect idea.
