Squaramel Apples

October 30, 2015


Trick or treat?!? In the "spirit" of Halloween, we browsed the internet in search of a healthy, vegan, yet traditional, treat. When we stumbled upon Fork & Beans' recipe, we couldn't wait to try it for ourselves. Ergo, after a couple of adaptations, we made these "Squaramel" Apples, and man are they scary good!!! Trust us, this recipe is sure to put a spell on you, it's unBOOlievable... okay we'll stop! But really, they're mummy, oops we mean yummy!! Plus, they don't get stuck in your teeth (i.e. braces friendly!). No tricks here folks, just treats!

p.s. Happy Halloween from our spooky Square Kitchen to yours!


Ingredients:

5 apples (chilled in the refrigerator)
10 pitted date, we used Deglet Noor
1 tbsp full-fat coconut milk
1 tbsp organic expeller-pressed coconut oil
1 tbsp raw cashew or almond butter
1 tbsp coconut nectar
2 - 3 Chocolate Coated Almond Spice Squarebars or Chocolate Coated Crunch Squarebars ... or a mix of both!
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (dairy-free, soy-free)
5 craft sticks


Recipe:

  1. First off, put your craft sticks into the tops of your apples. 
  2. Next, boil filtered water (enough to cover 10 dates) in your "cauldron." While you're waiting for your water to boil, chop up your dates. Once the water is boiling, turn burner off, place dates in water and let them sit for 10 minutes. 
  3. After 10 minutes, drain water from dates (we used a mesh colander). 
  4. Place dates, coconut milk, coconut oil, raw nut butter, and coconut nectar in a high speed blender. Blend/combine ingredients until smooth. Add more coconut milk if needed. 
  5. Place your caramel paste into a shallow soup bowl. 
  6. Take an apple by the stick and twirl in the paste until the apple is covered. Do this for each apple, until all the apples are covered in "caramel."
  7. Set your apples in the freezer for 10 minutes. 
  8. As your apples set, prep your Squarebars. Chop your them up until into really small pieces. 
  9. Spread out pecans and Squarebar pieces. Take apples by their sticks and roll them in the toppings. Or just simply take a small handful of toppings and place them on each side of the apple. 
  10. Put apples back in the freezer again, so you can melt the chocolate. 
  11. Place your dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Place bowl in the microwave and heat in 20 second increments. Every twenty seconds take out bowl and stir chocolate. Once the chocolate is melted, drizzle on each apple. This makes the apple not only look pretty and taste good, it also helps hold the toppings on. 
  12. Lastly, chill the apples in the freezer for another 5 minutes so that everything sets. 
  13. Enjoy!
