Simple to make, low carb, healthy and delicious, these No Bake Homemade Snickers Bar will be your new favorite treat! These babies are also gluten free, vegan, dairy free, sugar free and keto friendly!
With Easter right around the corner, I figured I would share these delicious, low carb homemade snickers with you guys to have some healthier options for you guys. I don't about you but we always a bunch of candy around the house these days.
Especially around the holidays.
What better way to avoid temptation than to make a more nutritious "candy bar"? And don't these look absolutely incredible?
Just to give you guys an update, still can't taste or smell.
And not being able to taste these delicious homemade snickers just might be the ones I am most sad about. Let's just say these will be the first to make when the time comes...
I always like to prepared for a sweet craving, especially around any of the holidays. We are busier, maybe a little more stressed than usual and we just might be stress eating or eating mindlessly.
That is exactly why I prepare myself and avoid all of those tempting treats and make a much more healthy version. And man oh man, these homemade snickers did not disappoint.
Even though they look like they took hours and hours to make, I promise you only need a few normal ingredients to make these babies.
I simply drizzled the chocolate on top of these bars but you can also place them completely in the melted chocolate to make sure they are all covered. Do whatever you want, either way they will taste delicious.
Is anyone else drooling just looking at these pictures? My family went crazy for these and I know one day (hopefully soon) I will be enjoying these bad boys as well.
I decided to freeze a couple (and hide them from my family) so they will be there waiting for me when my taste comes back.
And let's just say I am ridiculously excited.
It's strange that we will have another Easter and holiday staying home with just the five of us. It does seem like things are opening up a bit which makes me more hopeful, but it is still scary at the same time.
I know you all agree with me that we just want everything to go back to normal, whatever that means these days.
I was happy to find out that I do have antibodies, which I have heard conflicting things about. Some doctors say it doesn't seem to mean much and there is no evidence that it protects you.
I will just take this as a small victory while everyone else gets their vaccines. I still have to wait a few months since I just had it.
Honestly, who knows? There is so much conflicting information that it is overwhelming and stressful.
Again, I will just take that as a positive thing. We can all use some more positivity these days and I will circle back to these ridiculously incredible homemade snickers.
The most difficult part of making this is waiting for them to set in the freezer. It feels WAY longer than it actually is.
I promise it will be worth it.
I highly recommend making a double batch and freezing half for later. You will be so excited that you listened to me.
