Milky Way Bars Recipe - Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

catering fort lauderdale
Reminiscent of the chocolate candy bar of the same name, these are actually pretty good for you. We made 1/3 recipe (we were afraid we’d eat them all otherwise), and it worked out just fine.
Nougat Filling:
1 cup (250 ml.) raw almonds, unsoaked (dry)
1 cup (250 ml.) raw cashews, unsoaked (dry)
3 Tbsp. (45 ml.) agave nectar
1 Tbsp. (15 ml.) water, or more if needed
Caramel Topping:
1 cup (250 ml.) dry unsweetened dates
1/4 cup (60 ml.) pure maple syrup
juice of half a lemon
1 Tbsp. (15 ml.) coconut oil
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 cup (250 ml.) water (I used much less–it would have been watery otherwise)
“Milk” Chocolate Coating
1 cup (250 ml.) pure cocoa powder
1 cup (250 ml.) pure maple syrup
1/2 cup (125 ml.) coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup (60 ml.) water
Soak the dates in the water and lemon juice for an hour. Drain and reserve soaking liquid. Meanwhile, make the nougat.
Nougat: In a coffee grinder, grind the cashews in small batches into a fine powder. Remove. Process the almonds the same way.
Place the nut powders in a large bowl. Add the agave and water, and mix with your (clean) hands until the mixture is thick and paste-like. (Fun to lick it off your fingers, too!)
Place a piece of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Form the nougat into a long rectangular bar on top of the plastic wrap. Place the board in the freezer for an hour.
Caramel: To make the caramel, process the soaked dates, coconut oil and sea salt in a blender. Use the soaking liquid, one tablespoon at a time, to soften the mixture as you blend. Blend until you achieve a thick creamy mixture.
Spread the caramel in a long strip on top of the nougat (use a knife or offset spatula to spread it evenly across the top of the rectangle). Return to the freezer while you prepare the chocolate.
Chocolate: In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, maple syrup, and coconut oil together until smooth and creamy.
Pour the chocolate over the candy pieces and freeze an additional hour or until the chocolate sets. Use any extra chocolate to drizzle patterns over the tops of the bars.

16 Best Benefits Of Corn (Bhutta) For Skin, Hair And Health

Corn, also known as maize or our good old ( Bhutta/Makkai/Challi ) in Hindi, ‘ Mokka Jonnalu ‘ in Telugu, ‘ Makkacholam ‘ in Tamil, ‘ Cholam ‘ in Malayalam, ‘ Musukina Jol a’ in Kannada, ‘ Makkai ‘ in Gujarati, ‘ Makai ‘ in Marathi and Punjabi and ‘ Butta ‘ in Bengali. Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility. Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be

The History of Aluminum Foil: Just Don't Call it Tin Foil

Gerard Paul  September 11th, 2020  Cookware ,   Grilling & Outdoors   Aluminum foil – sometimes incorrectly called  tin foil  – is a thin, prepared sheet metal made of aluminum, often used in cooking (and food storage!). Although it may seem a little  dull  at first glance (especially on its dull side), aluminum foil has quite a fascinating story behind it. Many incredible things occurred before it became a staple in the modern kitchen. In this post, I'll discuss the various events that led to the aluminum foil revolution, and highlight the continued importance of this seemingly mundane material in our lives.  Aluminum Foil What Is Aluminum Foil?
