The other night, my 4-year old and I made these unbaked “cake/brownies” out of dates, raisins, mixed nuts, shredded coconut, cacao, and vanilla extract. It is nutty, chocolatey, and chewy, like a chocolate caramel with a sort of nutty “brownie-fudge” consistency. These are the type of desserts I make at home because it is so easy, delicious, filling, and not to mention a lot healthier than the traditional cake/brownie. My daughter LOVES these! And, they are perfect for me when I am craving chocolate!
I have different versions of this recipe; “Raw Vegan Chocolate Balls”, “Snow Balls”, and “Brownie with Icing”. But, I wasn’t in the mood to make “balls” or “icing”, so I just flattened the chocolate mixture out on a little glass container, placed it in the fridge for a few hours, and then cut it into “cake/brownie” bites. You can definitely get creative with these and add whatever you want (dried cherries, semi-sweet/dairy-free chocolate chips, etc). It is fun to experiment!
