What are Wagon Wheels or Chocopie?
Wagon wheels are cookie sandwiches with jam and marshmallows in the middle of the sandwich, then coated in melted chocolate. Wagon wheels are popular in many countries, in many countries in Asia there is a variation called Chocopie. I've been eating Chocopie as a child, and it is one of my favorite childhood dessert. This is my attempt to veganize this dish using minimal and easy-to-access ingredients.
This recipe is created in collaboration with Nature's Charm Oat Condensed Milk and Oat Whipping Cream.
