It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween is my most favorite holiday in the whole wide world. There is something magically delicious about this time for me; something that brings out my creativity in a way that nothing else can. And what better way to over-indulge myself than to celebrate all month long through VeganMofo?! I’m like a little girl unable to sleep on Christmas Eve…but for 30 days straight.

Raw Chocolate Bars - Fork & Beans

{If you haven’t already seen the secret stash, last year I recreated a cauldron-full of gluten, egg, and dairy-free candy bar recipes you can check out here}:

This week, I decided to kick off the month-long celebration with a collection of some of your favorite Halloween trick-or-treats using only nuts, raw cacao, dates, agave, and coconut oil. A very Fork & Beans HAL*RAW*WEEN Special… (See what I did there? Halloween makes me punny!) *cue the sound of crickets now*
