Almonds: soaking and dehydrating of almonds is an option, not a requirement; you can use raw nuts. If you choose to soak nuts, complete this process in bulk, so you have a good amount of nuts in your pantry for recipes and snacks, then your recipe process is quick and easy. Soak almonds over night. Rinse and drain. Dehydrate for 12–24 hours or until dry. Dehydration time will depend on how many nuts are in the dehydrator at one time.

Cashews: soak cashews for 2–4 hours. Rinse and drain. The soaking process is an option, not a requirement; you can use raw cashews. I do recommend soaking if you have time.

The chocolate heaven cheesecake is NOT vegan if honey is an ingredient. Honey is produced as regurgitated bee vomit, which is clearly an animal product. Most honey is produced to the death & detriment of the bees it is taken from. Please do not refer to the recipe as vegan!
