Raw Vegan Snickers Slice

A really fun fact about me is that I am an expat! I was born and raised in the UK, got my degree and packed my bags to see the world. I can’t say that it was never my intention to stay this long, but the way things have worked out I’m glad it did. If you’re wondering I met a really cute guy. Classic story am I right? Well, almost 5 years later and here we are still grinding out life in New Zealand.

The point of that story was to say that I am human, I miss my family and I call my mum pretty much every single day. Which brings us to one of our conversations this week about food. My mum had cancer in her tonsils last year meaning her diet changed significantly, she has the all clear now but it still affects her eating habits. We were discussing chocolate bars mainly things of the gooey nature, like snickers which was the ultimate inspiration for this recipe as for the rest of the day I couldn’t stop thinking about snickers.

That led me to thinking how I could make a snickers vegan without using refined sugar, in which this creation was born! So I will let you in on a little secret. I was totally naive with the first batch and just thought that the dates had already been pitted, which I quickly found out I was wrong. Word of advice: Check your dates have been pitted.

      1. There were and are an absolute dream! I’ve cut them into 1 inch square pieces because they’re so damn rich. My only difference was I got impatient with the caramel mix not fully blending so I kept adding milk, so I now have super soft creamy caramel centre, but they have to stay in fridge or freezer otherwise they kind of melt.
