These Healthy Homemade Take 5 Candy Bars are a much better option than the storebought kinds, made without the corn syrup, trans fats, and preservatives!

Caramel is such a widely used ingredient, especially in storebought candy bars.  Those Homemade Paydayz 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…  mmmm, 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 Take 5 Candy Bars 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.

  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 🙂

  5. I have a quick question… How are these considered “low sugar” if the serving size is assumed to be 1 bar at 33 grams of sugar? The WHO recommend daily added sugar intake is 40-50 grams of sugar. So 33g would be nearly your entire recommended intake.
