vegan caramel covered apples with cashews

October 28, 2014

vegan caramel applesI used to have a blog before this one. And a blog before that. Yes, I like to blog.

Well, it got confusing for a bit because I thought I had posted this recipe on this blog. Nope! It was my last blog. My bad.

Please excuse the slightly out of whack photos, but I really wanted to share this little Fall snack idea with you guys because I loved it that much.

I mean, vegan caramel sauce is just better than regular caramel sauce. First, you know you’re not consuming large amounts of corn syrup. Seriously – you should check those ingredients. They are…not pretty. Plus, aside from the obvious “health” benefits, it actually tastes pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.

For this little concoction, I used this recipe. However, I’ve recently been using this caramel sauce in a lot of my recipes and loving it even more (though the ingredients are nearly the same).

Making sure to cover each apple as thoroughly as possible, before dipping them in the cashew bowl and pouring cashews all over them.
