Author Cecilie Bresson


Bottom Layer

  • 80 grams nuts – I used hazelnuts and cashews (2.5 oz)
  • 10-12 dates (pitts removed)
  • ½ tsp vanilla sugar or vanilla extract (or ¼ tsp vanilla powder)
  • 1 dl desiccated coconut (0.4 cup)
  • 2-3 tbsp peanut butter

Peanut Caramel

  • 15 dates (pitts removed)
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp agave syrup

Peanut Topping

  • 40 grams halved peanuts (1.4 oz or approx. 1 handful)

Chocolate Coating

  • 150-250 grams dark chocolate (5.3-8.8 oz)


Bottom Layer

  1. Add the nuts and coconut to a food processor and blend them into a fine flour.

  2. Add dates, vanilla and peanut butter to the food processor and blend until you get a smooth and sligthly sticky dough. It should be a little dry but you should still be able to press it together using your fingers (Depending on the size and juiciness of your dates you might need a add a few more).

  3. Line a 19 x 11 cm (7.5 x 2.3 inch) baking/loaf tin with parchment paper. Add the bottom layer mixture into the tin and evenly and firmly press the mixture into the tin. Set the tin in the fridge while you make the peanut caramel layer.

Peanut Caramel

  1. Add all the ingredients to the food processor and blend until nice and smooth.

  2. Spread the caramel in an even layer on top of the bottom layer. Sprinkle the halved peanuts on top and gently press down on them. Set the tin back in the fridge for 4-6 hours or overnight.

Chocolate Coating (Option 1: the chocolate on top)

  1. Melt the chocolate and pour in on top of the peanut caramel layer. Let it harden/solidify a little and then remove the whole thing from the tin and cut it into 12 bars. If the chocolate hardens completely the chocoalte will break when you cut it.

Chocolate Coating (Option 2: chocolate drizzle)

  1. Remove the snickers from the tin and cut it into 12 bars.

  2. Melt the chocoalte and drizzle it over the bars.

Chocolate Coating (Option 3: complete coverage)

  1. Remove the snickers from the tin and cut it into 12 bars.

  2. Melt the chocolate and add it to a bowl. Dip the bars into the chocolate, coating the entire bar and then place them on a rack or a piece of parchment paper.

Recipe Notes

* Store the bars in the fridge in an air tight container. 

** You can also use a vegan milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate (or even a mixture between the too) if that is more your thing. 

If you enjoy the peanut butter chocolate kombo then you should definitely try my peanut butter cookies 🍪 They are everything you could ever want in a cookie!

Are dark chocolate chips vegan? This is a question that I’m asked quite often, and thankfully the answer to that is YES! Cacao (which chocolate is made of) itself is vegan. While milk is sometimes added (so do look at the ingredients), there are many brands of dark chocolate that are vegan and vegan chocolate even vegan milk chocolate is becoming much easier to find 🍫
