Cashew Joy Vegan Candy Bars
October is what I call the beginning of dessert season. It all starts with bags of candy and chocolate bars for Halloween, followed by the pies of Thanksiving, and onto cookie swapping in December before those New Year’s resolutions set in. But have you noticed? The pies and cookies are all about homemade, while Halloween is left in the pre-packaged dust. Sure, you may not be able to pass out ‘made with love’ goodies to trick-or-treaters thanks to Halloween scares, but you can feed such preservative-free (and dairy-free!) vegan candy bars and goodies to your little ones, their classmates, and party guests.
I made these almost Almond Joy vegan candy bars myself, and they were met with sighs of delight. With my husband, myself, and two foodie guests as taste-testers, I can honestly say that these no bake treats are positively delicious and very easy to make. Of course, my bars didn’t come out as pretty as Hannah’s, chocolate dipping really is a skill to master, but they were every bit as delicious.
