(Don't Be) Too Timid and Squeamish: Macadamia cherry chocolate vegan cake pops

Macadamia cherry chocolate vegan cake pops

My entry in the vegan raw cake pop challenge:


Macadamia cherry chocolate vegan cake pops

1 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
pinch salt
3/4 cup dried cherries
10 medjool dates
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

I started with a cached recipe from here and switched up the ingredients.

I made a faux cream cheese frosting using Toffuti Better Than Cream Cheese, Earth Balance Spread, vanilla extract, and sweetener, based on a recipe here.

I ground up the macadamia nuts with the salt and cocoa. I mixed in the cherries, dates, vanilla extract, and a little water, until it stuck together and could be formed into balls.


I formed the mixture into balls and froze them. 



I then applied the faux cream cheese frosting and froze them again.



They were good. I liked the cake more than the frosting, though. 


Vegan Culinary Crusade
(Update: the frosting is not raw because the ingredients were cooked during processing, so my entry in the contest is without the frosting. A simple icing would work well for a topping.)

Here is a beautiful round-up of all of the entries. Congratulations to the winners!

These look amazing! I'm a baker too, and I'm always looking to try new kinds of recipes. You might want to check out the Anthus Channel at www.anthus.com – it’s a TV network that’s dedicated health/wellness, positivity, and social cause that we’re hoping to launch in November. We also have a great social network at www.anthussocial.com. I’d love your feedback. Thanks so much!
