Raw Snickers Candy Bars

I got the idea to make this recipe from a reader. These are so freaking tasty, and mostly just - you guessed it - almonds and dates. They are pretty sweet and filling so you probably won't need more than one. Or maybe you will. What do I know? After some quick research (thanks, Wikipedia), I learned snickers bars are defined by a nougat layer topped with caramel and covered in chocolate.

PFF. NO PROBLEM.

Consider these rawified. The nougat layer is raw flour, almonds and a wholesome sweetener of your choosing. Then I made the simplest and most delicious raw caramel ever (anyone can do it, I don't have any special powers) by blending dates with water, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Finally I threw together some raw chocolate and covered the bars in it. I am impatient so I did not wait for them to harden but in theory - they should.

Raw Snickers Candy Bars

Ingredients

Nougat layer

  • 1/2 cup raw flour (such as oat, coconut, buckwheat, almond, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup raw honey/agave/maple syrup
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 pine nuts (optional)

Caramel layer

  • 1 cup dates and enough water to cover them
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Raw Chocolate Coating

  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar or date paste
  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or cacao butter, melted

Preparation

  1. To make the nougat: pulse the flour, pine nuts (if using) and sweetener together in your food processor until smooth. Add the almonds by hand. Shape into small logs on parchment paper and put in the freezer.
  2. To make the caramel: blend all ingredients together in your blender until creamy and thick, adding the least amount of water you can. spread a little on to the tops of each nougat log and put back in the freezer.
  3. To make the raw chocolate coating: Mix all ingredients until smooth and ridiculously delicious-looking. I highly recommend adding other ingredients like mesquite powder, sea salt, vanilla, or anything else that could take this to another level!
  4. When they are frozen enough, cover each one in chocolate and let harden in the freezer or fridge. Enjoy!

As a tag says \'vegan\', it would be a good idea to make it clear that the food would not be vegan if made with honey, so people who don\'t know about veganism don\'t get confused

This looks amazing! Would it work is you did everything through step 2 in an 8x8 or bread loaf pan. Let it firm up a bit then cut into logs then top with chocolate?

With using the raw chocolate coating in the link you posted, is it a think coating or more runny? I really want to make these and was wondering how the chocolate coats the bars. If it is more thick do I wrap it around the bars or if it is runny do I dip it in the chocolate?
