These bars are sweet, chocolatey, fudgey, chewy, rich and perfect for any time. Eat as many as you want, because it's your life and it should be delicious and fulfilling. I just ate one for breakfast and it's probably the best decision I've ever made. I know I have about one million recipes similar to this one already published on my blog, but I will never stop sharing variations of chocolate peanut cups / cakes / bars / etc. The combo is a classic for a REASON. I shared these bars with my mom and best friend: mom said "yum", BF said "one of my fave recipes from you... ever".
Side note: I wanna let you know about a massive giveaway my fave skincare company is hosting. Luminance Skincare is giving away a year's supply of their luscious hand-crafted vegan body care products. Trust me: you don't wanna miss your chance to win this. I use their rosewater toner, body butters and soaps everyday and their masks once a week. My cupboard is stocked full of their lovely bottles and jars, and always will be. See more info here to enter (you just have to sign up for their mailing list). I cannot say enough about how much I adore this company, their ethics and the quality of their products.
I think this is all I'm gonna write for this post because honestly I can't think of anything else to say, and I have a ton of shit to get done today. Enjoy the bars! XO
FUDGEY CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SLICE
[ makes 4 slices ]
1/4 cup cacao butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cacao powder
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1 cup dates
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
1 teaspoon ashwaganda powder (optional)
1 teaspoon reishi mushroom powder (optional)
1/4 cup coconut milk, or more as needed
1/3 cup unsalted peanut butter or your fave nut/seed butter
Melt the cacao butter and coconut oil on low in a small, heavy pot. Blend this together with the rest of the ingredients (except the peanut butter), adding coconut milk as needed to get a very thick, creamy mixture. Spread half of this evenly into a small lined baking pan. Spread on the peanut butter. Finally spread on the remaining fudge. Sprinkle with more salt if you like. Leave in the fridge overnight, slice and enjoy!
