The first time I made these delicious snickers bites I was completely blown away by how yummy they are! So much better and healthier than the real one!!! 🙂 Whoever is a fan of the combination of peanut and chocolate will definitely fall in love with those. Instead of long bars I cut them into small bite size pieces, which are perfect for a quick snack when you’re craving for something sweet. Like this, you can easily eat 1-2 and won’t feel too full afterwards. I used a 20×20 cm brownie tin, but if you want yours to be a bit thinner use a slightly bigger one so you can spread out the layers a bit more. My whole family loved them so much that we managed to finish the whole batch after 2-3 days, so don’t expect them to last very long! 🙂
- 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
- ⅓ cup coconut milk (full fat)
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- ⅔ cup almond flour
- 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
- ½ cup 100% natural peanut butter (smooth)
- ⅓ cup coconut milk
- ½ cup melted coconut oil
- a pinch of Himalayan salt
- 1½ cups roughly chopped unsalted peanuts
- 300g vegan dark chocolate (75-85%)
- Place all the ingredients for the nougat layer (except for the almond flour) in a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Then add the almond flour and mix until combined.
- Line a baking tin with parchment paper and place the nougat layer inside. Spread the layer evenly and freeze for 2 hours or until set.
- In the meantime, place all the caramel ingredients (except for the peanuts) in a blender and mix until you get a smooth layer. When the nougat is firm, spread ½ of the caramel layer on top.
- Sprinkle half of the chopped peanuts over the caramel layer and use a spatula to press the peanut pieces into the caramel.
- Repeat this step with the remaining caramel and peanuts and freeze for 1 hour or until set.
- When ready, remove the slice from the tin, cut into desired shape (snickers bars size) and place back into the freezer.
- Melt the dark chocolate and dip each bar into the melted chocolate until it's completely covered.
- Let cool down (faster to let them chill in the fridge) and cut into small bite sized pieces.
- Store in the freezer and let cool down a few minutes before eating!
