SNICKERS BITES

January 26, 2018

Maybe it is just us but peanut butter seems to be having a moment right now and we’re pretty happy about that. Peanut and chocolate go together (in equally naughty fashion) like cookies and cream. We’ve created a more natural yet equally addictive version of the classic Snickers Bar here. Our Snickers Bites are sugar-free and full of creamy, gooey caramel and peanuts, coated in a rich, dark chocolate. Make sure you make plenty as once your friends and family taste them, they will definitely want more.

INGREDIENTS

  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp Nuvia Sweetener
  • 2 tbsps natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt

  • FOR THE FILLING
  • 100 grams unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup cream

METHOD

  • FOR THE BASE
  • 1. Place all the ingredients for the base into a food processor and pulse until well combined and mixture forms a ball.
  • 2. Press base mixture firmly into a 20 cm square tin, lined with baking paper and place in freezer while preparing filling.

  • FOR THE FILLING
  • 1. Melt butter in a pan over a low heat until it starts to brown and begins to foam.
  • 2. Add cream, Nuvia Sweetener, almond butter, vanilla extract and salt, and continue to stir until the mixture thickens.
  • 3. Remove from heat and add the roughly-chopped peanut to the mixture.
  • 4. Spread the filling over the base mixture and return to the fridge and allow to set for around 1 hour.
  • 5. Once set, carefully lift out onto a chopping board and cut into 24 bite-sized pieces using a sharp knife.

  • FOR THE COATING
  • 1. Melt chocolate over a double boiler on low heat, making sure that top bowl does not come in contact with boiling water on the bottom.
  • 2. Once chocolate is melted and smooth, dip each snickers bite, coating each side with chocolate and place on baking paper to set.
  • 3. Once all pieces are coated and set, repeat the process of dipping each piece and then place in fridge to set.
 

These Snickers Bites are best stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Alternatively, store in a container, wrap in a plastic freezer bag and freeze.

TIPS AND TWEAKS

To make this recipe vegan:

• Replace butter for vegan butter
• Replace cream with coconut cream
• Use vegan chocolate for the coating.

Melting the chocolate:

An alternative to the double boiler method of melting chocolate is to melt it in the microwave. Simply place chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and put in microwave in short 20 to 30 second bursts. Remove and stir after each burst to ensure that it does not overcook.
