Vegan Klondike Bars


 I have a confession --- I had just a little bit of ice cream this morning...you would too if you had these vegan klondike bars in your freezer! I made two flavors --- plain (sweetened with just a little bit of honey) and black sesame green tea; today will be the recipe for the plain one and I'll share the green tea one tomorrow ;) The beauty of this recipe is that it's soo simple to make and does not require a lot of attention or time! It freezes quickly and there's no need to wait for the chocolate to harden or anything because of this magic shell recipe!














Recipe: Vegan Klondike Bars
By: Hannah Claudia
________________________________________

for the ice cream:
1 cup of cashews
1 cup of almond milk (or water/any milk of your choice)
1 small spoonful of honey, maple syrup, or agave (about 2 teaspoons)
(opt) additional mix-ins

for the chocolate shell:*
1/4 cup of cocoa powder (i love Hershey's special dark)
1/4 cup of coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon of honey, agave, or maple syrup

(opt) peanut butter, additional mix-ins, your desired flavors

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::;

1. Soak the cashews in water for about 2 hours (enough water to cover the cashews)
2. Drain the cashews and place all of the ice cream ingredients into a blender. (add any additional mix-ins, like candies, chocolate chunks)
3. Place the cashew mixture into a silicone mold or a bowl/loaf pan lined with plastic wrap.
4. Place more plastic wrap directly over the top of the ice cream mixture to prevent any excess ice from forming.
5. Freeze for about 2 hours or until fully frozen
6. Mix the chocolate shell ingredients in a bowl.
7. Cut the ice cream mixture into bars/squares (this is where I spread a little bit of peanut butter over the bars/squares)
8. Spoon the chocolate shell all over each bar/square (or dip the whole thing in)
9. Wait until the chocolate is fully frozen (takes 30 seconds or so) before serving.


*You can use the leftover chocolate shell and pour it onto wax paper, freeze it, and then chop it up to make vegan chocolate chunks!
