No-bake copycat Snickers anyone? These are a treat and a half— think sweet, ooey-gooey dates, crunchy, salty peanuts, and a delish layer of chocolatey goodness. Feel free to cut them into bite-sized pieces so you can munch when craving strikes! 

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 14 bars
  • • 15-17 soaked, dried, and pitted Medjool dates
  • • 3/4 cup salted peanuts, divided
  • • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  • • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • • 1 teaspoon salt
  • • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

In a food processor, blend the dates, 1/2 cup peanuts, cinnamon, cacao powder, and salt until it reaches a dough-like consistency. Empty the contents of the food processor into a baking dish and fold in remaining peanuts. Spread the layer into the base of the baking dish using a silicone spatula.

Melt chocolate in a deep and wide microwave-safe bowl or over the stove until liquid and pour evenly over top date mixture. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt and pop in the freezer to harden (~4 hours.)

Once hard, cut into about 14 candy bars. Bars can be stored in freezer for up to 3 months.
