Twix Bars (Healthified)

Every Halloween, I raid my kids candy for Twix.
The quite literally are my favorite candy of all time and I try to avoid them at all costs but let's be serious when they are mini size, they seem to make a lot more sense, one goes down and then you end up eating 5-10 before you know it.

((As many of you know processed sugars and gluten trigger my anxiety and fibromyalgia symptoms like NO OTHER so its why I do my best to avoid and find healthy hacks (I promise to post about the sugar and gluten beast soon))

I decided this year to arm myself before Halloween night with something sweet that I could eat instead of the real twix bars and I will let you know when I'm up against the real thing tomorrow night! 

My friend Lyndsey made these babies the other day and I knew I had to try them out.
I made a few modifications because I was out of some ingredients. 
These were pretty darn simple to make and I sped up the process by using the freezer to harden the caramel layer. 

So let's look at some drool worthy pictures before I give you all the details.
Get in MY BELLY. 
Here's what you will need:
8x8 pan (I just used a circle one because for some reason my 8x8 disappeared) 
Parchment Paper
Oven set to 350.

Ingredients:

Crust:
2 Cups Almond Flour (or could sub with Gluten Free All- Purpose)
2 TBS coconut flour (or use try more gluten free flour) 
1/3 cup Coconut Oil melted
1/3 cup Honey or Maple Syrup

Caramel: 
1/2 Cup Almond Butter (or any nut butter)
1/3 Cup Coconut oil melted
1/3 cup Honey or Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Salt 
*1/4 tsp cinnamon if you fancy 

Chocolate:
1/4 cup Coconut Oil melted
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder *add more for deeper chocolate flavor
2 TBSP Honey or Maple Syrup
1/8 tsp Salt 

Directions. 
Mix the crust toppings in a bowl. For some reason my crust was a tad thicker (might not have measured perfect) so if that's the case, add some almond milk. Place parchment paper in bottom of pan and press crust into the pan. Bake at 350 for 10-20 minutes, until its a tad firm to touch. Take out of oven and cool. Once cooled, mix your caramel ingredients and pour over the crust. Place in freezer for about 30 minutes until hard. Mix the chocolate mixture and pour onto the caramel, it actually starts to harden as you pour on. Return to freezer if needed to harden before cutting. Once hard, cut into whatever size pieces you fancy, store in a container in your fridge until gone. 


These are so freaking good, the boys all love them as well! The only adjustment I would make is thin out the crust next time, but it could be because I used a circle pan vs. square, but I will try them again with thinner crust. Overall they are a WIN!!!! 

ENJOY!

  1. RESTORATION CAME UPON MY LIFE WITH THE HELP OF FUNDING CIRCLE INC. AFTER BEEN DRAIN BY SCAMS ...

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingcapitalplc@gmail.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
