I love Chocolate!!! But I’m not a big fan of Soy and processed sugars so I make my own Chocolate Candies.
One of my favorite types to make are little Peanut Butter Snickers. I love these so much my daughter put these on my Birthday Cake this year, here is the recipe for Dairy, Egg and Gluten Free Chocolate Cake.
Here is what you need to make my homemade version of Peanut Butter Snickers Candies:
This recipe makes 24 1-inch square candies.
A double boiler
A Silicon mold like the Wilton square Brownie bite mold
3/4 cup of Cocoa or Carob Powder
1 cup of Cocoa Butter
2 tablespoons of Peanut Butter
1/2 cup of Honey for the Chocolate
1/2 cup of Honey for the candy filling, divided into two 1/4 cup portions
1/2 cup of Peanut Butter
1 tablespoon of Arrowroot Powder
1/4 cup of Peanuts
Place the Cocoa, Cocoa Butter, 2 tablespoons of Peanut Butter and first 1/2 cup of Honey in the double boiler. Melt over low-medium heat, stirring constantly.
Coat the insides of the mold with the melted Chocolate mixture.
In a bowl mix together the 1/2 cup of Peanut Butter, 1/4 cup of Honey and the Arrowroot Powder.
Divide the Peanuts between all of the chocolate coated molds.
Place 1/2 of a teaspoon of plain, unmixed honey over the peanuts.
Place 3/4 of a teaspoon of the peanut butter filling on top of the honey. Pat it down with your fingers.
Cover the the tops of the candies (which will actually end up to be the bottoms of your candies) with the Chocolate Mixture.
Cool thoroughly before attempting to remove the candies from the mold. Placing them in the refrigerator or freezer will help to cool them quicker.
