Clean Eat Recipe :: Chocolate Caramel Peanut Bars

Desserts & TreatsWhitney CarlsonComment






1. Make the caramels:

  1. In a medium sized saucepan, combine everything except for the vanilla and peanuts.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring with a wooden spoon.
  3. Reduce heat and continue to stir for approx 20 minutes.  Add vanilla.
  4. Once combined, place the mixture aside while making the rest of the bar.
    • Do NOT add the peanuts yet!

2. Using an electric mixer, combine 1/2 Tbsp water, brown rice syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla, natural peanut butter, and salt until creamy.  Slowly add Stevia in the Raw.  Note: The Stevia in the Raw gives it a somewhat bitter taste at this point - this is okay!

3. Once combined, remove it from the bowl with your hands and press it into a lined or greased 4" pan.  Place in refrigerator to cool.

4. If your caramel has hardened, heat it back up for a few minutes until soft.  Once soft, mix in the peanuts.  Once filling from step 3 is firm, pour caramel over the filling.  Place back in refrigerator to cool.

5. Once your refrigerated mixture is firm (this could take a few hours), melt the chocolate in the microwave for approx 2 minutes, stirring halfway through.  Cut mixture into bite size bars and dip in melted chocolate to cover, using a fork.

6. Place bite size bars onto wax paper and allow to cool (this could take a few hours).

He & She Tip: We also poured some of ours into a lined muffin tin.  If you are also doing this, make sure you add melted chocolate to the bottom, then add the filling, and finally top off with more melted chocolate.
