Healthier Vegan Snickers Slice

I seldom crave meat. I cut out red and white meat in 2008, and enough time has passed for my taste buds to completely adjust to life without it. It took me longer, however, to remove dairy from my diet, and these cravings seem to show up more regularly. That, coupled with my desire not to end up too wide to easily exit my house, led to the creation of my Healthier Vegan Snickers Slice. It tows the line between raw and baked, sugar free and sugar drenched, and healthy and heart attack inducing. It's messy, delicious and cruelty free, so get into it!
