Caramel is such a widely used ingredient, especially in storebought candy bars.  Those Homemade Paydays I made the other day were sooo freakin delicious, we kind of gobbled them up in less than 24 hours…  yes, all 12 Paydays.  Who cares though, they were only 60 calories each  😉

I made a list of all the candies I wanted to try with caramel in them…  Snickers, Milky Ways, Turtles, Take 5s…  mmm, Take 5s sound pretty good right about now!  So I quickly melted some chocolate, chopped up some pretzels and got my chocolate molds out.  These Healthy Homemade Take5 Candy Dars are TO. DIE. FOR!  They are crunchy, chewy, rich, decadent, sweet and satisfying (I would keep going, but I figured you would rather just get to the recipe)

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt the chocolate and spoon into 5 chocolate molds. Maneuver the mold around so the chocolate reaches all around the mold to create "walls."
  2. Sprinkle each cavity with peanuts and refrigerate for ~30 minutes, or until firm.
  3. Press a caramel into each cavity, spread the peanut butter over the caramels, then press the pretzels into the peanut butter.
  4. Spoon the rest of the chocolate over the pretzels in each cavity and refrigerate for ~45 minutes, or until completely firm. They are ready to serve!

  1. Gahhhh, Take 5s are my faaaaavorite! So many flavor combinations, and I LOVE sweet and salty! Yours are soooo pretty!

  2. Well I hope you were my personal chef. I could never be able to make these but they look SO GOOD. Could you please send me some? 😀

  3. I googled to find some recipe, didn’t bother to include “vegan” in the search term, got on your blog and the recipe was vegan anyway! Happy. And the blog is great :)
