Snickers Slice {Sweet Sunday}

There is no denying that Snickers slice is almost impossible to pass up, and since I whipped up this original slice at Happy Place two years ago, it has been walking out the door ever since. I have also added a fructose friendly option for those of you who struggle with FODMAPs. Although this recipe is fairly “clean” (whatever that means), it is quite calorie dense due to all the nuts, and so best enjoyed in moderation (i.e. give away slices to friends/housemates/randoms on the street so you don't eat it all in one go).

**For those who are fructose intolerant, instead of dates in the base use about 2 Tbsp coconut oil and then a little rice malt syrup (fructose free) or even baking stevia (1/4 tsp) to sweeten.

Ingredients:

Base:

  • 1 cup almonds (preferably soaked at least 8 hours and then drained)

  • 1 cup desiccated/shredded coconut (sulphate free & organic if possible)

  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked in hot water and drained

  • Pinch cinnamon

Snickers Filling

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)

  • 1/2 cup almonds (soaked 8 hours)

  • 1/2 cup macadamias (soaked 8 hours)

  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup

  • Pinch salt

Chocolate Top

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder

  • 1 Tbsp rice malt syrup

  • Chopped peanuts, almonds (optional)

Method:

  1. Blend all base ingredients together (in blender or food processor) until a thick crumbly paste forms. Press into lined baking tin and place in the freezer to set.

  2. Blend Snickers filling layer ingredients together until smooth and very sticky (it should almost be too sticky to spread). Spread over the base and press down until flat and then place back in the freezer.

  3. Melt the coconut oil in a small bowl over a pot of simmering water (or in the microwave, checking and stirring regularly. Once melted stir in the rice malt syrup and raw cacao until combined. Pour over the frozen filling and then sprinkle chopped nuts over the top so they set in the chocolate.

  4. Place back in the freezer until completely set. Cut into slices and serve cold (from fridge or freezer).
