If you’re a long time follower, you know I have a thing for recreating classic candy recipes. My first ever candy creation was these vegan snickers bars. Back when I lived in Brooklyn, I used to sell these locally every week, and hand deliver them to all of my customers while I was finishing up my nutrition degree.
Food truly does bring people together and I’ve always loved sharing good food with others and seeing how they enjoy it just as much as I do.
These candy bars are surprisingly really easy to throw together and require absolutely no baking! They’re a great freezer-treat for when you want something sweet, salty and crunchy.
The base is made of a combination of peanut, almond flour and dates, and the caramel layer is a blend of dates, almond butter, maple syrup and a couple of other simple ingredients.
They’re finished off with chopped peanuts for an added crunch, and coated in melted dark chocolate chips. I always get asked how I coat my candy bars, so I included a time-lapse video at the end of the recipe card for your viewing pleasure!
