Peanut butter cups are great, but why limit yourself? The best thing about making your own treats is all the choices you get to make! Do you prefer carob, or cacao? Cashews, or pecans? Sea salt or Himalayan salt? These delicious caramel nut butter cups are a choose-your-own-adventure story, where every ending is blissful. Have your nut butter cups and eat them, too.
I think if everyone knew that you could have a raw vegan cream cake that looks and tastes as amazing as this inspirational creation, there’d be a lot more raw vegans around! Is this what they call a case of “having your cake, and eating it too“?
It’s never made sense to me why anyone would want to have a cake and not eat it. I mean, the whole point of having cakes is to eat them. But looking at this Strawberry Cashew Cream Cake, I can see why people might want to just have it. Look at this thing! It’s a work of art. In cake form!
The combination of carob and maple syrup is amazing. The dark sweetness of these two flavors really compliment the tartness of strawberries. Carob is an amazing substitute for cocoa that comes from a cool Mediterranean tree. The taste is almost like a cross between chocolate and raisins. It works wonderfully as a drizzle, with it’s unique yet familiar flavor.
The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for your cream cake the set in the fridge. Try to wait at least 24 hours. Consider that the time to “have your cake”, and only after that you get to eat it!
