Raw Snickers Slice

IMG_0910
I’ve been dying to make these and finally found the time to getting round to it! I know most of my recipes are mainly dessert based, but I love experimenting with sweet treats.

These are so nutty and sweet – tastes just like a snickers bar! Plus they are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of coconut shreds
  • 1 cup of Medjool dates – pitted
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil

Firstly line a tin with baking paper to prevent the mixture sticking to the bottom.

Base

  1. Blend all the ingredients together until well combined. You may want to do this on a high speed.
  2. Once combined, press the mixture into your tin and place in the freezer to set.

Peanut Caramel Layer

  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on a high speed.
  2. Keep blending the mixture until thick, make sure you scrape down the sides and add water if the mixture is sticky. This may take about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove your tin from the freezer and spread the mixture evenly across the base.
  4. Place back in the freezer for atleast an hour to set.

Chocolate LayerΒ 

  1. In a small pan and on a low heat, melt the coconut oil.
  2. Add the cacao, salt and agave and mix.
  3. Take your tin out of the freezer and pour the chocolate over the top. Place in the freezer for a few hours until completely set.

Before serving, leave the mixture sit out to thaw and become slightly soft.

I cut mine into small segments, wrapped and refroze, then I can take them on the go for a sweet pick me up!Β IMG_0928
