I love to share recipes that I find online and this one is a special treat for all you chocaholics out there… (I can’t remember where I found it sorry so can’t link you back to the original recipe)
How about some homemade snickers bars?!
For the caramel:
8 medjool dates
¼ cup almond milk
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Blend these 3 together and then stir in ¾ cup salted peanuts
For the nougat:
½ cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons coconut flour
4 tablespoons maple syrup
Mix these 3 together in a bowl
In a medium sized plastic tub (approx. 700ml) line with greaseproof paper, press in the caramel then the nougat and leave to freeze for at least 2 hours.
Melt 150g dark chocolate
Cut the frozen block in to bars and roll through the chocolate, leave to let the chocolate set.
If you use 85%+ dark chocolate these bars will be vegan. You could use other nuts like cashews or almonds rather than peanuts (my bright idea to mix things up) or even dried fruit… The options are endless.
Enjoy with love
