omg, i just found these pictures on my computer and cant believe i never posted them. even though right now im in “healthy food land” i figured i have to post these nuggs. this winter i made a ton of vegan snickers (recipe here) and i used the leftover “nougat” and some vegan butter cookies to make a second round of mini delicious candy bars, that were modeled after the glory that is Twix bars. the main ingredient to these were great little vegan shortbread cookies that i then laid on top of the leftover nougat, freezed, then dipped in dark chocolate.
i think the shortbread parts were so cute, i even went out of the way to poke little indentations in each one, like in a real twix. i cant find the recipe i used anymore but if you just googled “vegan shortbread” youd find tons of options.
i made about three dozen mini twix bars which we mostly ate fresh from the freezer, cause the choco coating was pretty melty. i love making my own candy, since its so hard to find decent vegan candy bars, and especially ones that arent full of crappy cheap ingredients and preservatives. go make some candybars!
