Raw Mini Snickers Bars by Fragrant Vanilla

9 Vegan Sweets for Your Grown-Up Trick-or-Treat Bag: Raw Mini Snickers by Fragrant Vanilla // plantpowercouple.com

If I had to pick the three most iconic candy bars from my childhood, they would have to be 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, and Snickers. 

Of course, it wasn’t until I was older that I realized one was just built upon the body of the other: A Milky Way was a 3 Musketeers with caramel, and a Snickers was a Milky Way with peanuts added. My pre-adolescent mind was blown away at this realization. It’s like realizing Dr. Frankenstein is the real monster of the novel.

With that in mind, I give you Fragrant Vanilla’s vegan recipe for the greatest of the three delicious treats. And while you’re over there, be sure to check out her version of the 3 Musketeers Bar as well as these Twix Bars!
