These bliss bars combine the savory flavor of salted peanuts with the rich, creamy taste of chocolate. A perfect snack for when you want something sweet and salty!
- For the Base:
- 1 cup dates, pitted and soaked for 10 minutes
- 1 cup peanuts, unsalted
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
2. For the Chocolate Topping:
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- A pinch of sea salt (for sprinkling)
3. For the Peanut Butter Layer:
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey

- A pinch of sea salt
- Prepare the Base:
- In a food processor, blend the soaked dates, peanuts, and sea salt together until it forms a sticky mixture.
- Press this mixture into the bottom of a lined square or rectangular dish. Place it in the freezer to set while you prepare the next layer.
2. Peanut Butter Layer:
- In a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup or honey, melted coconut oil, and sea salt until smooth.
- Spread this mixture over the date and peanut base and return to the freezer to set for about 10 minutes.
3. Chocolate Topping:
- In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips with the coconut oil, stirring until it becomes a smooth mixture.
- Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter layer in the dish, spreading it out evenly.
- Sprinkle the pinch of sea salt over the chocolate layer.
4. Set and Serve:
- Place the dish back in the freezer for about 30 minutes, or until everything is solid.
- Once set, remove from the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, using a sharp knife, cut into bars or squares.
- Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
