Why you’ll love these Homemade Snickers Bites

When I was working in corporate accounting, we had a community candy drawer that I swear I couldn’t walk past without stopping “just for a look” at least once a day. I would always grab a few of my favorite mini chocolate candies, vowing to “stash them away for a rainy day” anytime I saw them in the drawer. Some of my favorites were the mini Snickers and the mini Almond Joy’s. To be 100% honest, these chocolate bars didn’t make it to my desk, as they were quickly devoured by me the minute they were in my hand. It was a nasty cycle, to say the least!

At some point, I had to quit cold turkey. I found out I was just not good at moderation and by not opening the drawer, it was much easier for me to say no. This is also why I don’t buy Halloween candy. Even though I don’t crave it, just having it in the house is a temptation I don’t need on a daily basis.

However, I still like to have indulgences. I try to make better for you versions like these 5 ingredient homemade snickers bites. The ingredients are simple: dates, tahini, maple syrup, pecans and dairy free chocolate chips. No artificial colors or ingredients, no high fructose corn syrup or potential gluten, peanut or dairy cross contamination, which is important in our house! By the way, you could also make your own chocolate coating with protein powder and coconut oil if you want! Check out the instructions for how to make that in my homemade almond joy post!

My go-to brand of dairy free chocolate chips is the Enjoy Life Brand, but Lily’s brand is also a great option! You could also cut up your favorite dark chocolate bar and melt that for the chocolate coating as well, you don’t have to just use chocolate chips!

Also, you can cut the chocolate in half and just drizzle the dates instead of cover them if you want to save the calories and added sugar!
