cashew turtles

August 3, 2012 by Angie

The challenge for Week 31 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking is frozen. I assume that means we should make a recipe which requires both baking and freezing but I really can’t think of anything that calls for all that. A lot of pie recipes have you bake a crust then put the filling in and refrigerate but not freeze. I made vegan cashew turtles which called for a little microwaving (close enough?) then freezing and OMG y’all the results are¬†mind-blowing. There is just something about a chocolate-covered cashew.

I followed this recipe¬†using cashews instead of pecans and vegan chocolate chips. I did use her agave nectar and salt suggestion rather than buy a jar of caramel sauce. It’s quite good, better than caramel in a jar I think. These turtles took so little time and work and are so amazingly delicious. They definitely win the award for tastiest return on effort.
