snickers

Need some Halloween treat ideas without the preservatives that won’t leave you feeling guilty? Try our almond candy bar naturally sweetened with Wedderspoon Raw Fir Honey!

Nougat:

-1/2 cup of nut or seed butter (we used almond)

-1/4 cup of flour (we used brown rice flour)

-2 TBS of Wedderspoon Raw Fir Honey

Salty Caramel:

-10 medjool dates

-1/3 cup of canned coconut milk full fat

-1 tsp of vanilla extract

-pinch of salt

Any chopped nuts for the nut layer (we used almonds)

Chocolate Coating:

-3 TBS of coconut oil

-2 TBS of Wedderspoon Raw Fir Honey

-1/3 cup of raw cacao

Directions: To make the nougat blend all ingredients in a food procesor until a stiff ball forms. Add more flour if necessary. Shape into a flat rectangle on a piece of parchment paper and place in the freezer. Then add all the caramel ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth (this may take awhile). Smooth on top of the nougat, sprinkle chopped nuts, and place back in the freezer. Ideally these should chill for at least an hour. Chop into sticks. To make the chocolate coating, place water in a small saucepan on high heat with a mixing bowl on top as the double broiler. Add the oil until melted and turn the heat down to a simmer. Add the honey and cacao and mix until smooth. Dip frozen sticks into melted chocolate and place on a wire rack or parchment paper and cool back in the freezer. Allow to chill and enjoy!
