WHATCHAMACALLIT CANDY BAR, VEGAN VERSION

The Whatchamacallit has been my favorite candy bar since before I can remember. It was my breakfast and lunch all throughout my high school years; it was the only item in the vending machine I really enjoyed. So I got to thinking about this candy – the delicious chocolate, peanut butter, krispies, and caramel, and then I thought how can I make a vegan one… And it hit me! Now this will take a few steps, and it does take a little time, but it’s worth it! I’ll be giving the steps to make 1 candy bar, but feel free to make as many as you’d like.
First get 1 cup of Rice Krispies cereal, and in a bowl, break it up more with your hands to make it more crunchy. You don’t want a powder, but you don’t want the full rice puff. Now add a 1/2 cup of peanut butter and mix together with the rice krispies. Next, form the mixture into the shape of a candy bar, and try to get it as tight together and stuck together as possible. If you need to add more peanut butter to do this, go for it. Once it’s all shaped and firm, place in a freezer.
Now it’s time to make the caramel. In a metal bowl add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup vegan butter, and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. Then using heat protective gloves, Bring a pot of water to a boil, and place the sugar butter syrup bowl on top of the boiling pot. Melt all the ingredients together and then add 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Keep mixing together until fully melted and mixed together. 
Now take out the krispie peanut butter bar from the freezer and cover the top of the treat with the caramel sauce. Place back into freezer. Also, save any leftover caramel in the fridge, it can always be reheated and used to make more.
Using the same method as we did to make the caramel, we will melt chocolate. I used dark chocolate vegan friendly chips, and I then added a scoop of vegan butter, just enough to make sure I don’t burn the chocolate. I then melted together in a metal bowl, over a boiling pot of water. Once fully melted and mixed, take out your caramel peanut butter krispie bar, and brush on your liquid chocolate on both sides. Once it’s fully covered, place back in the freezer for about 2 hours. 
After its solidified and cooled, it’s now ready to be fully enjoyed, and truthfully it’s just as good as the real candy bar. This whatchamacallit is a legit whatchamacallit! Peace, Love, Grub.

OREO COOKIE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Hello Everyone!! I was sick for a bit and couldn’t cook, but I’m choosing to make a return on this lovely holiday, 4/20! 

For today’s lovely stoner holiday, I figured I’d make some amazing stoner snacks! Don’t worry, it’s not medicated at all, so the non-stoner can enjoy these munchies too!
All you will need to do is make sure you have some Oreos, as well as some vegan friendly cookie dough (I have a homemade cookie dough recipe a few entries back). 
Start by taking your vegan cookie dough and covering an oreo fully in the cookie dough. It’s easier if you refrigerate the cookie dough, refrigeration makes it easier to form around the oreo, but fresh dough will still work too. 
Once you have covered your oreos in cookie dough, preheat your oven to 350. Once the oven is ready to be used, pop in your cookie mixture for about 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them because some ovens may vary in power, and these cookies may need to cook longer or shorter than the 15 minute estimate I’ve given. 
Once the outer cookie is golden brown and finished, take these snacks out of the oven and let them sit to cool for about 5 minutes. This cooling process is to protect your mouth, because those Oreos get super hot if eaten fresh, and a burn on the roof of your mouth is the worst! So show some restraint for your own mouths safety!
Once cooled, you can now enjoy with a cold glass of vanilla almond milk, or chocolate almond milk. Try not to eat all of them yourself!! I know it’s going to be hard, and honestly I can’t say I had the same self control! Peace, Love, Grub!
