    While I was rummaging through old notebooks yesterday I found a long lost recipe for vegan chocolate cake that I had been thinking about lately. But I could not remember how to make it or find the recipe online anywhere! I used to make it into muffins or cupcakes when I was a vegetarian and they were really good. I brought them to parties and you can't tell they're vegan. I've even used almond flour instead of regular flour and they were good like that, too.

    1 1/2 cup flour
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    1tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 tsp white vinegar
    1 cup h20

    Bake at 350 degrees (didn't scrawl a time but just keep checking.)

    Get one liter can (I got a disney one made of glass, don't know how the fuck I got that one, but it has a smiling goofy on it)

    1 full portion of strawberries
    2 bananas
    half cup of honey
    fill it with milk

    Use a mixer to blend everything up

    Enjoy healthy delicious drink. You can replace any kind of 2 berries with the strawberries/banana to customise the flavour.
    You can add vanilla ice cream to change it into a milkshake.

    You can use syrup instead of honey, do not use sugar, sugar is shit.

    I ate some vegan chorizo yesterday that I picked up from Walmart. And it tasted exactly like actual chorizo, which was incredibly surprising! I’m Mexican so I tried many chorizos in my life. And it was so yummy!

    Unfortunately I haven’t been fully vegan. Mostly vegetarian, but slowly working myself up each day and adjusting not having dairy or eggs.

    I'm not vegetarian or vegan, but I've lived with the guilt of that choice since I wrote a report on factory farming when I was 17. So there's that.

    But on the bright side, I love fruit. It's a simple sorta pleasure. My neighborhood has some white folks who grow cacti out in their front yards and don't seem to know what to do with the fruit. I guess they're prickly pears but in mexican spanish they're called tunas. It used to be a rare treat. I reckon the desertification of the sw states will bring a lot more of it to the markets.

    That's like my SO. He eats meat, but he knows the truth about it. He doesn't eat it often, though.


    Prickly pear is so good. It's hard to find in the Northeast unless you go to the stores the chefs shop at.

    Here is the recipe I'm making for Halloween. I've never made it before, so I can't promise anything. I was inspired to look for the recipe because the prices for similar vegan Halloween treats were ridiculously high and I have all these ingredients at home. (There are similar recipes that include dates.) I'll also be using a high quality Belgian chocolate to make a ganache instead of chocolate chips.


    Vegan Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Bars

    Ingredients

    COOKIE LAYER:

    1 1⁄2 cups superfiner almond flour 3 tbsp refined coconut oil melted 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    1⁄4 tsp sea salt

    CARAMEL PEANUT BUTTER LAYER:

    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
    1/3 cup refined coconut oil
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    1⁄2 tsp sea salt

    CHOCOLATE TOPPING:

    3/4 cups Dairy-Free Homemade Chocolate Chips* or chocolate of choice Instructions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 8x8 dish with parchment paper.

    Melt coconut oil in medium bowl, then stir in almond flour, maple syrup, vanilla extract and sea salt. Stir together until a cookie dough texture forms. Add dough to parchment lined pan, spread evenly and press firmly with fingers to create cookie layer. Bake for 10 minutes.

    While the shortbread cookie layer bakes, add peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt to a small sauce pan. Cook over medium, stirring continuously, for 2-3 minutes or until smooth consistency is reached. Once shortbread layer has baked, allow to cool slightly (5-10 minutes) then spread caramel peanut butter filling over bottom later and add to freezer for about 30 minutes or until middle layer has hardened.

    1. Once the middle layer has hardened, add homemade dairy free chocolate chunks to small bowl and microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Whisk the chocolate, then pour evenly over caramel peanut butter layer, smooth into an even layer.

    2. Freeze bars for 15-20 minutes or refrigerate 30-45 minutes, until chocolate has hardened

    3. Remove bars from pan, cut into 16 small squares and Enjoy!
    Store bars in refrigerator until ready to serve.

    @Sandie33
    Yum!!! I'll be right over. Hahahaha!
    I will let you know. If I have time, I'm going to make maple caramel corn, too, package some of each up and bring Halloween treats to friends. (I prefer going to houses and handing out the treats on Halloween, like reverse trick or treating.) I'll drop them in mailboxes this year.

    That sounds like a fun way to celebrate:D

    That maple caramel corn sounds yummy too. Do you like kettle corn? The folks that sell at our carnival uses peanut oil so it still counts as vegan.
