Snicker Bars

Snicker Bars

Snickers. This has got to be one of people's all time favourite chocolate bars, and there really is something satisfying about giving it a go and making it yourself. Very few ingredients and really very easy too! Just look at those chocolatey covered bars with crunchy peanuts, that caramel layer and a super delicious nougat bottom. Your only regret will be not giving this a go...

INGREDIENTS:
Caramel Layer
  • 200g medjool dates (pitted)
  • 45g mooth peanut butter 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)
Nougat Layer
  • 60g oats blended to make oat flour
  • ¼ cup date caramel
Other
METHOD:
  • Pop the dates in a bowl, cover with hot water and soak for 10 minutes.
  • Drain any excess liquid off of the dates and add them to a food processor with the remaining ingredients for the caramel. Once thick and smooth, remove the date caramel from the food processor.
  • Add the oat flour to the food processor (no need to rinse) with ¼ cup of the date caramel and blitz. It should form a dough that will hold together when you pinch it.
  • Firmly and evenly press the oaty nougat into lined loaf tin.
  • Next spread the remaining caramel over the nougat, and then sprinkle with the peanuts, making sure to press them into the caramel so they stick.
  • Place this in the freezer for 60-90 minutes.
  • Just before removing from the freezer, melt the chocolate in a wide bowl over a pan of boiling water.
  • Remove the bars from the freezer and the tin. Use a sharp knife to cut it into bar-sized pieces.
  • Place each bar into the bowl of melted chocolate and using two forks, flip the bar, until it is coated on all sides. Then, place it onto a plate lined with parchment paper.
  • Place the bars in the fridge for 20 minutes, to allow the chocolate to harden and the ENJOY!

It’s a little different to my day job, but it is thought about, planned, designed, developed, trialled, tested, tweaked, and eventually there is a great (scrummy) result! I hope you enjoy the recipe."
