For the base
  1. 1 cup dates
  2. 1 cup raw almonds or sunflower seeds
Toppings
  1. ½ cup organic smooth peanut butter
  2. 1 cup peanut halves
For the chocolate
  1. 1 cup coconut oil
  2. 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  3. 2 tablespoons honey
  4. Or replace the above with a bar of 200g baking chocolate
Instructions
  1. Start by baking the almonds or sunflower seeds for around 10 minutes. In the meantime pour some hot water over the dates.
  2. Blend the almonds or sunflower seeds until finely powdered and almost turned into nut butter.
  3. Filter the water out of the dates and prepare the base of the snickers cake by blending together the dates and almonds using a food processor.
  4. Make an even layer of ‘dough’ at the bottom of a loose base cake tin. I used an 8” tin. Press the dough with your fingers. You can dip your hand in a bowl of water from time to time to be able to work with the dough. Place temporarily in fridge when ready.
  5. Prepare the chocolate ganache by mixing together over low heat the coconut oil, cocoa powder and 2 table spoons honey. Set aside. You could replace this step by double boiling 200g of baking chocolate of your choice.
  6. Remove the cake base from the fridge and cover with a layer of organic peanut butter. I prefer smooth peanut butter for this step.
  7. Spread the peanut halves on top of the peanut butter layer making sure that no peanuts overlay.
  8. Then top the cake with the melted chocolate ganache making sure that all the cake has been covered.
  9. Store in fridge so that the chocolate layer hardens into chocolate. You can also store in freezer to fasten the process. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
