2 cups almonds
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp water
- Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
- Add the almonds to a high-speed blender and blend until a fine, powdery flour is formed. Transfer to a bowl.
- Add the vanilla extract, coconut oil, and water to the bowl and combine well.
- Pour the almond base into the pan and press well until it’s evenly distributed. Place in the freezer.
8.8 oz (250g) Medjool dates*
1 tbsp almond butter
¾ cup water
1.5 cups unsalted roasted peanuts
- Add Medjool dates, almond butter, and ¾ cup water to a blender or food processor. Blend until you get a creamy, sticky consistency.
- Pour the caramel over the almond base and smooth with a spatula.
- Sprinkle with peanuts and gently press them into the caramel. Place in the freezer overnight or until fully set.
- When set, cut into small squares or rectangles.
*If your dates are a bit dry, soak them in hot water for 10-15 minutes. Drain.
10.6 oz (300 grams) dark chocolate
Himalayan salt, optional
- Chop the chocolate into small chunks and place them in your Zip Top, the large or medium dish should work great. To melt the chocolate simply place the Zip Top in a saucepan with water on low heat. To avoid burning the chocolate, make sure the water is always warm. You should be able to touch the water without getting burnt. Once the chocolate is melted, remove the Zip Top from the water.
- Open the Zip Top and dip your Snickers one by one into the chocolate. Place them on a tray with parchment paper. Sprinkle with Himalayan salt, if desired.
- Once your Snickers are dry, store in your Zip Top in the fridge for one week, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
