I Love chocolate bars.
In saying that, they hate me, so I never buy them.
Those boxes of bite size bars are fun and a great way to just have a taste, if you can stop at just one.
I have really been enjoying trying out recipes for making chocolate bars at home- healthier versions.
I came across this homemade Twix recipe and WOW I can not stop eating them- although it tastes more like a caramel peanut crunchy chocolaty thing than a Twix.
It keeps great in the freezer- and when eaten frozen it is chewy and wonderful.
Bars of yumness
1/4 cup Rice Syrup (found in a health food store)
2Tbs Peanut butter
1tsp Vanilla essence
Pinch of Salt
1 1/4 cups Puffed Rice Cereal
Mix all the wet ingredients together and heat till it bubbles and is melted together, add the Rice Cereal and mix till well combined.
Tip into a grease proof paper lined tray, with wet hands spread to cover the base of the tray. Put in the freezer to firm up.
1 1/2 cups Pitted Dates (if hard, cover in hot water till soft then strain)
1Tbs Peanut butter
1Tbs Milk/ or Almond milk (you may need more)
Pinch of Salt
Place all Caramel ingredients in a food processor (or you can use a blend stick) and blend till rather smooth- you may need some more of the milk to help it blend, carefully spread over the base and put back in the freezer.
2 Rows of Chocolate (I like to use Dark 72%)
1tsp Melted Coconut oil- optional
Melt on medium power in the microwave till smooth- use the back of a spoon to spread over the Caramel layer.
When the Chocolate is almost set cut into small bars. Store in the freezer and eat, everytime you walk past the freezer.
