This is a delicious raw vegan alternative to cooked candy apples for the Halloween/autumn season!
You can see the original post of this recipe on my blog, "barefoot and frolicking: a space for musing on living and raw foods":
Candy Acorn Apples
1 cup dates (unsoaked)
1/2 cup almond mylk
1 tsp vanilla extract
hemp seeds, to decorate
pumpkin pie bar mix* (see recipe here: http://barefootandfrolicking.blogspot.com/2009/10/raw-kitchen-hu...)
Blend dates and vanilla extract in a blender, adding in almond mylk (begin with 1/4 cup) until desired consistency is reached and mixture is smooth.
Paint on date mixture with a kitchen-pastry basting brush in layers.
You can chill the apples in between layers (I did about three layers overall).
Decorate with hemp seeds. Chill and enjoy! :-)
