Chocolate peanut bars
The last 'Chocolate Week' recipe is here!
I used my very own Wholeplus Toppers as i've been wrapped up in the depths of festive flavour experiments and so my classic chocolate sprinkle was on my mind. But have no fear, I have also noted instructions below so you can simply make your own version too.
This no-bake bar is a variation of a traditional 'bliss ball' and in this instance peanut butter is the champion. We all know how well chocolate peanut butter go together! Of course you could use any other form of nut butter- how about hazelnut butter for a ferrero rocher style bar (oh my gosh I might just have to do that!!), that would be amazing...
You can form balls instead if you prefer and dust lightly with cocoa to make a chocolate peanut butter truffles. Super duper indulgent and perfect for parties for halloween if you press a round nut for an eyeball in the top ;-)
If you do try making your own 'Toppers' they should look like this before you mix the peanut butter into them:
Why not keep some aside for a tasty porridge or dessert sprinkle as well. They store for weeks in a sealed container and are perfect have on hand when you simply need a little natural sweetness.
PS. for those of you in UK I'm launching my Wholplus Christmas Range of flavours in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled. It's exciting time of year!!

Recipe: Chocolate peanut butter bars
Approx. 10 bars (depending on size)
- 2 cups chocolate Wholeplus Toppers mix (dates, cocoa, flax)*
- 1 tbs lemon juice
- ½ cup crunchy peanut butter (crunchy is best for nutty flecks and texture)
Blend ingredients together until sticky. Press into the bottom of a line small pan or loaf tin making sure the mix is around 15mm-20mm thick. Chill until firm and slice into bars. Can be frozen.
*To make your own similar version of my Wholeplus Toppers process dates, cocoa and flax together until you have small slightly sticky pieces.
