Serves: 10 Twix Bars
Ingredients
For the Shortbread:
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
For the Caramel:
  • 6 medjol dates, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons SunButter
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon purified water
For the Chocolate Coating:
  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate chips, melted
Instructions
For the Shortbread:
  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Plug in your food processor and add in macadamia nuts. Process until macadamia nuts convert into a flour consistency (see picture below).
  3. Add in maple syrup, vanilla extract and sea salt. Process just until ingredients are well incorporated (see picture below).
  4. Using a tablespoon, scoop mixture and roll into a ball. Shape the ball into a long tube and place down on parchment paper (should be around 2½ to 3 inches long). You can use a knife to smooth sides and top of shortbread.
  5. Place baking dish in your freezer. Now on to making the caramel.
For the Chocolate Coating:
  1. Once you have your chocolate chips all melted, dip each stick into the chocolate and place it back on the parchment paper. *Make sure sticks are 100% covered with chocolate.
  2. Place baking sheet back into the freezer and leave it there overnight.
  3. Enjoy and love life! If want to save sticks for later, just make sure to either keep them in the refrigerator or freezer.
For the Caramel:
  1. Place dates, sun butter, sea salt and water in food processor. Process until all ingredients have been well mixed.
  2. Take out baking sheet from the freezer and top each shortbread stick with your caramel. Use a tablespoon to help you scoop the mixture out of the processor, and using your hands, place the caramel on top of the shortbread to cover it completely (see picture below).
  3. Place baking dish back in your freezer.
