Snickers Date Bark

Posted on

Looking for a sweet treat that’s a bit healthier? Dive into the deliciousness of date bark! It’s like having a Snickers bar, but without all the added sugar. Plus, it’s perfect for meal prep, giving you a tasty option whenever hunger strikes!

Let’s kick things off with the star of the show: the Medjool dates! These dates are perfect for this recipe because of their caramel-like taste. Start by slicing them down the middle to remove the pit, then place them sticky side down on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Pack them tightly together to create the base. No cracks allowed – we want to keep all that goodness inside!

You can make as much or as little bark as you want, and the best part? No need for precise measurements – just go with the flow!

Now for the fun part – adding the peanut butter! Feel free to use your favorite kind, whether it’s creamy or crunchy. If it’s on the thicker side, warm it up in the microwave for easy spreading. Once it’s smooth, drizzle it over the dates, creating a luscious layer of peanutty goodness. Next up, the chocolate! Melt it in the microwave and pour it over the peanut butter. Spread it out evenly, then sprinkle on some chopped peanuts and a pinch of flaky sea salt for that perfect balance of sweet and salty.

Pop it in the fridge for a bit to firm up, then slice it into pieces and enjoy!

Feeling adventurous? Mix things up with different ingredients! Swap out the peanut butter for almond butter or add some crunch with crushed peanuts. When it comes to chocolate, go for milk, semi-sweet, or dark – whatever tickles your taste buds. And if you want to change things up even more, try using sliced bananas instead of dates for a delicious twist on the classic recipe.
