So the best thing to do? Make something that takes less than 30 minutes, is one dish or less and is not a pain in the ass.
That's why I chose to make the caramel apples. The caramel is actually a mix of:
- Dates (1/4 cup)
- Coconut Oil (2 tbsp)
- Cinnamon (a splash)
- Raw Agave (a squirt)
Throw it in a blender and voila. Dippable, pourable, crack.
The recipe calls to roll it in crushed nuts but seeing as these are for a friend whose daughter can't eat nuts (and I have apparently run out of crushed toffee like I promised! Gah) I used chocolate sprinkles. Which may or may not be vegan. I didn't look because I'm not eating them. Ha!
It also calls for drizzled chocolate on top, but you can skip back to the beginning for that. I'm tired and I didn't want to. :)
They will look better once they've hardened, and I will definitely try again with nuts and drizzled chocolate- but for tonight, this lazy Thursday- here you go!
Cheers all ya'll!
