Hazelnut Snickers Bars

  • 175g medjool dates
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsps peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 40g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
For the chocolate coating

alternatively you could use your favourite chocolate bar, melted

  • 80g cacao butter or coconut oil
  • 3 tbsps maple syrup
  • 4 tbsps cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter

Method

  1. Start by making the nougat bar. Add all of the bar ingredients to the blender and blitz until the mix comes together. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and using your hands, divide in to 4 equal balls.
  2. Shape each of the balls in to a bar. Place the bars on to a sheet of grease proof paper and in to the freezer to set.
  3. Make the date caramel by adding the dates, peanut butter and vanilla extract to the blender along with 3 tbsps water and blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Once smooth, stir the hazelnuts in to the caramel until fully coated. Remove the bars from the freezer and top each with a layer of the date caramel. Return to the freezer to set for 30 minutes.
  5. When the caramel is almost set, start to prepare the chocolate coating. Add the cacao butter to a small pan and set over a low heat until fully melted. Once melted, stir in the cacao powder, maple syrup and peanut butter until smooth and remove from the heat.
  6. Remove the bars from the freezer and coat each in a layer of chocolate. Repeat until the bars are coated 2-3 times, depending on your preferred thickness of chocolate.
  7. Return to the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Thaw slightly at room temperate before eating. Enjoy!
