Simple Snickers Bites
Cook Time 30 minutes
200g low-carb low-sugar dark chocolate, melted, at room temperature
80g peanuts, roughly chopped, toasted
For the peanut butter filling
125ml canned coconut cream
125ml coconut oil, melted
250g smooth peanut butter
115g raw cacao butter
125ml maple flavoured monk fruit syrup or maple syrup
pinch of sea salt
For the peanut butter filling, place all the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat and melt together, stirring constantly, until nice and runny. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10–15 minutes.
Once slightly cooled, pour your mixture into a silicone square large-sized ice cube tray and transfer to the freezer to set for a minimum of 1 hour or until completely firm.
When you are ready to assemble the ‘Snickers’ bites, melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring as you go, until thick and creamy. Set aside to cool to room temp.
Remove one of the frozen peanut fillings from the mould and, using tongs, a spoon or even your fingers, dip it in the melted chocolate. Place on a wire rack and quickly top with the chopped peanuts and a pinch of salt. Repeat with the remaining filling pieces, working quickly before the chocolate completely sets.
Transfer to the fridge for 20 minutes to chill and firm before enjoying. These bites will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Good to know: For a thicker chocolate coating, re-freeze the bites after coating with the chocolate (and before sprinkling over the peanuts and salt). Leave to set completely, then coat again before applying the toppings as before.
