The Toffee Crisp should go down in the annals of 80s confectionary history. They’re right up there as an iconic 80s sweet snack. These weren’t particularly a favourite of mine but they were my Mums. I promised my mum I’d make a healthier, refined Sugarfree recreation of her time old favourite.
Here it is, a gorgeous refined sugar, vegan dairy & gluten free treat that’s made with whole food ingredients and topped with a heavenly nutty sauce (because it’s always nice to add your own little something, something, right?)
I made these guys with puffed brown rice for added health benefits. The sugar free fudgy chocolate mixture is made with cacao powder, dates, tahini, coconut oil, vanilla & pinch of salt. I mixed the lot together and loosened it with splash of almond milk.
Mix in the puffed brown rice & separate in to little bite sized portions and pop in the fridge for 1hr.
These are topped with a tahini & nut sauce that’s super quick & easy to make. Tahini, peanut butter, pinch of salt, coconut milk. A ‘tahini’ tiny bit goes a long way...
Deffo worth making these up as a healthier alternative and as
well as tasting great they have lots of health properties too. Tahini contains protein, vitamin B and E. Cacao is rich in antioxidants & magnesium. Dates are rich in fibre, potassium and vit B6.
Crisp Toffee Bites:
3 cups puffed brown rice
10 dates soaked in warm water
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp cacao
1 tbsp coconut oil melted
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp nut butter
1 tsp tahini
1/4 coconut milk
Splash plant milk to loosen
1. Drain the dates and add them to a processor along with the melted coconut oil, tahini, cacao, vanilla and pinch of salt. Whizz until a smooth paste forms. If needed add in a splash of the date water - sparingly! This should be a smooth paste not too runny...
2 Add the puffed rice to a mixing bowl and pour in the toffee mixture. Combine with a wooden spoon.
3. Separate in to bite sized portions and leave on a tray in the fridge for an hour to set.
4. While they’re setting add the nutty tipping ingredients to a processor and whizz together until well combined and it’s a loose, slightly runny mixture. When you have the desired consistency, set to one side.
5. When the crisp toffee bites are set, add the nutty sauce and enjoy.
