Ingredients

INGREDIENTS FOR THE BASE:

  • 1 cup (180 grs / 6.3 oz) of cashews, soaked in water for about 3 hours, and drained afterwards.
  • 1/3 cup of coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup (80 grams / 2.8 oz) of almond flour

INGREDIENTS FOR THE CARAMEL

  • 2 cups of pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pink salt, or other
  • 1 1/2 cups of whole peanuts, unsalted, chopped

INGREDIENTS FOR THE TOPPING

  • 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup of couverture chocolate, can also use melted chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup

Instructions

BASE PREPARATION:

  1. In a square mold of 15 cms (6 inches), or a little bit bigger if you like, put parchment paper in the bottom.
  2. Then, in a food processor or blender (or even with a hand blender), mix all the ingredients for the base, minus the almond flour. Once all the ingredients are ground and blended, you can add the almond flour, and then beat a little more.
  3. Place this mix as the base in the mold, and bring it to the freezer for 2 hours.

CARAMEL PREPARATION:

  1. First place the dates in cold water and leave them there for about 30 minutes.
  2. Then in a blender or other mixing accessory, drain the water from the dates and mash them along with the peanut butter, coconut cream, coconut oil, and salt. It must become a creamy mixture.
  3. Distribute half of this mixture over the Snickers base, then sprinkle chopped peanuts, then pour another layer of caramel, and sprinke again some chopped peanuts on top, ideally pressing them with your fingers a little.
  4. Bring this to the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  5. Take it out from the refrigerator, cut rectangular pieces, and bring them into the freezer for about 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the topping by mixing all the topping ingredients in a pot. Combine everything well until the chocolate melts.
  7. Pour this mixture on top of each Snicker, and then refrigerate for about 10 minutes until the chocolate is solid.
  8. Enjoy!
