Vegan Snickers Bar Recipe | EASY AND DELICIOUS!

Yes you heard it right….A vegan snickers bar recipe! I was so pumped to share this recipe with all of you, because it is so amazingly good! What’s better then chocolate and caramel?!

I have seen tons of vegan snickers bar recipes out there, but all of them were the same. I have never been a huge fan of date caramel, which is essentially dates and water blended up into a paste.
