For those that love snickers and cheesecake, you are going to want to tune into this blog post big time. If either aren’t good enough on their own already, we’ve actually combined the two to make a dessert with superpowers. And yes, we just compared this dessert to a superhero. Don’t say we didn’t warn you, the taste is like nothing you’d imagine, it’s better. Oh and it’s vegan friendly, could it get any better!?
Let’s break this recipe down by layers starting with the crust. The walnut and date crust, is the perfect consistency with a gooey texture but still crumbly like most crusts should be. Not to mention better for you with the dates adding an all natural sweet flavor. Yum! Next is the cheesecake filling. It can’t actually have cheese in it seeing as it’s vegan friendly, but the combination of nuts, syrup, coconut milk, and oil is the perfect substitution and is just as sweet if not sweeter than we expected. The final and most important layer is your salty sweet crunchy top. Homemade date caramel, lightly salted peanuts and a dark chocolate drizzle is the perfect topper. It’s hard we know, but give them the time they need to harden in the freezer, trust us it’s worth it!
Now that we’ve broken down each layer, it’s easy to see why it’s so amazing. Each layer made better by the next. We would like to get real here for a minute though. Not to burst the happy bubble, these are actually a bit tricky and time consuming. It’s a lot of step which can be overwhelming, and then the waiting game while they harden in the freezer isn’t to appealing to think about. We don’t say this to discourage you just a fair warning to mentally prepare yourself. Please don’t let this deter you from making these, and let us help you. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you have and we will do our best to answer them for you. We hope to hear from you, and happy baking everyone!
