If I owned a large corporation I would have my employees play outside during the day. I always have the best ideas when I am ‘meditating’ in nature! As I was kayaking the other day I was thinking of what other recipes I could do with the ever popular Crispy Fat Bombs I have been making and I BAM! It came to me! BUTTERFINGER BARS!
Yep, they really are as good as they sound!
I thought about making them really cute candy bar shaped, but doing it this way made them super easy! All you have to do is dump the filling into a container and spread the chocolate over the top!
Next on the list… BUTTERFINGER BLIZZARD and I am baking a BUTTERFINGER CHEESECAKE as I write!
Here to good eating!
- CRUNCHY INSIDE:
- 1 cup Swerve confectioners
- 2 teaspoons butterscotch extract
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- ¼ cup butter (or coconut oil)
- ¼ cup Swerve confectioners (or erythritol )
- 1 tsp stevia glycerite (optional)
- ¼ cup cream cheese
- ¼ cup natural peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- CHOCOLATE COATING:
- 6 TBS butter (or coconut oil)
- 4 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 TBS of Swerve confectioner
- 1 teaspoon stevia glycerite
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅛ teaspoon fine ground sea salt
- CRUNCHY INSIDE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine the natural sweetener, extracts and coconut oil with a fork until small crumbs form.
- Place on the baking sheet and spread into a thin sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
- The candy hardens as it cools. Once cool, crush into tiny bits.
- NUGGET: Meanwhile make the nugget. In a heat safe medium bowl place ¼ cup of butter, ¼ cup sweetener and stevia if using, cream cheese, ¼ cup natural peanut butter, 1 tsp vanilla and heat until soft and stir able (I heated in microwave for 1 minute). Stir until well combined.
- Add the nugget to the tiny bits of crispy fat bomb. Stir well. Pour into a 4 x 4 inch glass Tupperware container lined with Parchment paper. Smooth over the top. Place in fridge to set.
- CHOCOLATE COATING: Make the chocolate coating by melting coconut oil over low heat. Stir in chocolate, natural sweeteners, extracts and salt until completely melted.
- Once the nugget is cool spread the chocolate over the top. Place back in fridge to set. Cut into bars and enjoy!
