Homemade Snickers (Healthy & Vegan)

Fun-sized homemade snickers that are healthy, vegan, and can be made in less than 10 minutes? Count me in!

I think we all love a nice candy bar but hate that they are processed and full of sugar.

These are a perfect alternative to your favorite candy bar, without the guilt. 

My favorite part about this recipe is that you only need 4 ingredients that are clean and actually good for you.

You can have these as a snack or dessert, which I love because I am someone who loves to have something sweet at night. 

My family loves when I make these homemade snickers and they last about a day in my house.

A Few Tips for Making Homemade Snickers

  • You can enjoy their bars at room temperature or store them in the fridge. I keep them in the fridge because they last longer and I think it tastes better.
  • I used cashews in this recipe but you can use peanuts or whatever your favorite nut is.
  • After you dip your bar in chocolate you can place on parchment paper or on a cooling rack.
