It can be difficult knowing Foodie Facts from Foodie Fiction. We tend to find ourselves bombarded with the messages about what we should not be eating - heaven forbid anything artificial! But what about when temptation is just too much? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to eat something healthy even when you are having a bad day or you are bored and eating your way through the house?! Well you can with the Snickers cake recipe I have found!
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until you have a ‘sticky’ crumbly base when squished with your fingers.
Once you have successfully achieved this consistency, press it tightly into a lined tin and pop it in the freezer to let it set.
Using a food processor, blitz the dates with the warm water, until it is fully absorbed.
Follow this with the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla essence and salt until these are thoroughly combined.
Finally, fold in the chopped peanuts by hand to avoid crushing them too finely (as you want some texture it there). Evenly layering the gooey caramel mix onto your base and returning to the freezer to chill.
214g of Raw Cashews (soaked in water for at least 5 hours and then strained)
100g of Coconut Oil
109g of Maple Syrup
78ml of Water
50g of Cacao Powder
At a high speed, blend both the cashews and water until smooth, followed by the maple syrup and coconut oil until combined. Lastly pop in the cacao and continue until fully mixed.
Now at this point - I definitely recommend you have a cheeky taste! It’s not overly sweet, so if you’ve got a sweet tooth now would be the time to add a sprinkle of sugar or Truvia to taste. Don’t forget it will be munched alongside the super-sweet peanut caramel!
Once you have managed to get the sweetness just right, spread the yummy chocolatey mix over the peanut caramel layer, doing your best to smooth the top as best you can. Once more, returning it to the freezer for 3-4 hours to set.
If you can’t wait that long (we definitely couldn't!) then why not dig in a little sooner - Enjoy!
