Calling all snickers lovers, this recipe is for you! I’ve nabbed this recipe from Livia’s Kitchen and it’s honestly so good! They may look unhealthy but all the ingredients are completely natural and free from any refined sugars or additives, making it the perfect go to chocolate snack. The recipe doesn’t involve any baking, just a food processor and bains marie. You simply make a layer and pop it in the freezer to set while you make the next layer, and repeat. It’s best to store these in the fridge as the chocolate layer melts quite easily. I hope you love them as much I do!

 

  • Nougat base
    • 125g ground rolled oats or oat flour
    • 125g ground almonds
    • 60ml maple syrup
    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
    • 1 ½ tsp vanilla powder

     

  • Peanut Caramel
    • 350g dates
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • 95g peanut butter
    • ½ tsp vanilla powder
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
    • 40g peanuts (Toasted preferably or raw)
    • 20ml water (if needed)

     

  • Raw Chocolate
    • 100g coconut oil
    • 60g cacao powder
    • 2 tsp vanilla powder
    • Pinch salt
    • 4 tbsp maple syrup (50ml)

1. For the Nougat base, place the oats in a food processor and grind to a flour like consistency. Add all the other ingredients and pulse until it comes together when you pinch it in your hand. If it is still too crumbly to hold together, add 1/2 – 1 tablespoons of water. Press in to a brownie tin and place in the freezer while you make the caramel peanut butter filling.

2. For the Peanut Caramel layer, blend the dates until they form a paste and then add the other ingredients, except for the whole peanuts, blending until a smooth caramel forms. Add the peanuts in and pulse a few times so that they are combined with the caramel mixture. Spread onto the base and then return it to the freezer.

3. For the Raw Chocolate layer, melt the Coconut oil in a bain marie. Once melted add all the other ingredients and stir until you have a nice smooth chocolate. Pour onto the other two layers and leave to set in the freezer for at least an hour.

4. Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before slicing to prevent it from cracking.
