Looking for a healthier alternative to Halloween Candy for your kids this year? Something that, perhaps, will tempt them to drop the corn syrup and hydrogenated oil-laden minis?
Or, um, just a really delicious treat for you, yourself and YOU again to enjoy?
Either way, I've got just the ticket for you with these HOMEMADE SNICKERS TRUFFLES!!!
I thought about making a Snickers BAR, but the truth is, anything in excess isn't actually healthy, and they would have been some large honkin' bars to create each layer the homemade way. Instead, I figured that portable, bite-sized little truffles would allow you to indulge and maybe, maybe, stop at one.
Plus, it was an excuse to put something in the center. And discovering fillings and centers in delicious food is one of the great pleasures of life. Anyone with me?!
So that's what I did, y'all. I threw a chewy, caramely date center into the middle of a "nougat" made from cashew butter and coconut flour (read: healthy fat and protein!). Next, I roll each gem in crushed salted roasted peanuts (the salty and the roasty are crucial). Then I wrapped each one up in a luscious bow of melted dark chocolate, which hardens like magic shell!
What's not to like?! This are leaps and bounds healthier than traditional Halloween Candy, and they're way more satisfying as well. While this is an easy recipe, there are a few steps involved. So I say make a double batch while you're at it and save yourself the trouble a few days later!
I hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween this year! If you make these please tag me on Instagram @lauraleabalanced @llbalanced!
