Non-Dairy Caramel Crunch Bar – A Beautiful Mess

I’m all about that chocolate lifestyles. I discovered beautiful early on in my dating with my husband that we need to get other snacks once we move to the flicks as a result of he’s a candy tart/lemon head more or less individual and I’m a “it has to have chocolate or make it go away” individual. Crunch bars have been at all times considered one of my favourite treats and because we do dairy-unfastened and vegan consuming as a rule, I assumed it might be amusing to make a crunch bar with some caramel inside of as smartly for an additional yummy deal with.

The chocolate:

2/three cup non-dairy chocolate chips (I really like to make use of those semi-candy ones)

The caramel (recipe somewhat tailored from Fork and Beans):

half cup coconut milk (both complete or low fats works)
1/four cup brown sugar
three tablespoons vegan butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
half teaspoon vanilla extract

The crunch:

Rice crisp cereal (I really like to make use of this logo)

First, you’ll need to make the caramel to your chocolate bar since that takes the longest time to set. Put your entire caramel substances (aside from for the vanilla extract) right into a small pot over medium warmth and stir to mix them whilst the pot heats up and begins to boil. Once the pot is boiling, insert a sweet thermometer and go away the pot on my own (don’t stir!) till the temperature reaches 250°. It will take a bit of bit for the temperature to rise up that prime, so simply stay checking again in. But as soon as the temperature reaches the 220-230° vary, it’ll move up beautiful briefly after that, so simply stand close to the pot. Once it reaches 250°, take the caramel off the range and stir for your vanilla extract. Give the caramel a couple of mins to chill, and whilst it’s cooling, put some oil (I used delicate coconut oil) on a work of parchment paper and unfold your caramel over a space that’s sufficiently big to hide your chocolate bar mould. Place your caramel within the refrigerator for a couple of hours till set. 
While the caramel is atmosphere, use a double boiler or a pitcher bowl over a pot of simmering water to soften part of your chocolate chips (1/3 cup) and unfold them into the ground of a chocolate bar mould (or an excessively small bread loaf pan would paintings too). You need to simply quilt the ground of the mildew, so you’ll want to go away room for the remainder of your layers.

When your caramel is about, take it out of the refrigerator and use a pizza cutter to chop the caramel right into a rectangle that’s somewhat smaller than your chocolate bar mould. Place it caramel aspect down onto your chocolate bar and peel off the oiled paper so it’s sitting on most sensible of your chocolate layer. If for some reason why your caramel doesn’t come off the paper adore it will have to (every now and then making caramel will also be finicky), you’ll be able to at all times scrape it off and use an oiled spatula to more or less unfold it out over the chocolate. It will not be as beautiful, however will nonetheless style just right!
Once your caramel is in position, soften the opposite 1/3 cup of your chocolate and unfold it excessive of the caramel layer. Give your rice crisp cereal a couple of chops with a knife to get a divorce the cereal a little after which unfold them out over the chocolate and push them down into the chocolate with the again of a spoon.
Place your bar within the refrigerator to completely set, pop your sweet out of its mould and your yummy deal with is able to consume! You’ll need to retailer any uneaten portions of the sweet bar within the refrigerator, wrapped in wax paper. How scrumptious does that glance?! I used to be so pleased with myself that I may just make my very own sweet bar that completely looks as if I purchased it within the retailer and tastes wonderful too. I’m a kind of bizarre other folks that may have a sweet bar lasting for days or perhaps weeks as a result of I simply wreck off one sq. at a time when the chocolate yearning hits (generally after dinner for me), so a wealthy gooey sweet bar like that is very best to meet my candy teeth when the yearning hits. And in case you like to have your sweet bars within the freezer like I do, then opt for it! Frozen caramel and chocolate are what my goals are made from … xo. Laura
