Chocolate? Peanut butter? What a winning combination! But if your diet is nut-free there’s no need to miss out, with GetBuzzing’s delicious ‘Wowbutter’ bar! Somehow it tastes just like peanut butter, but contains no nuts at all! I used these tasty bars in my latest recipe to make up some truffle treats last weekend, and the recipe is so simple that anyone could give it a go!

Recipe (Makes 6-8)

Ingredients

  • 3 GetBuzzing ‘Wowbutter’ bars
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2tbsp syrup/honey
  • 1tbsp milk (dairy or non-dairy – your choice)
  • 2tbsp hot water

Method

  1. Combine the cacao, water, milk and syrup/honey together to make a smooth paste, then chill in the fridge until set (reserving a little to decorate). If you have small moulds to pour the mixture into then even better!
  2. Remove the mixture from the moulds when set, or cut small cubes from the set block
  3. Crumble the ‘Wowbutter’ bars into a mixing bowl, then microwave for 45s until softened
  4. Take handfuls of the crushed bar mixture, compress together, place a cacao piece in the middle, then form a ball around the cacao to cover, using a little more of the bar mixture if needed
  5. Repeat until all of the bar has been used
  6. Top with a drizzle of the remaining un-chilled cacao
  7. Refrigerate for at least 1hr, then enjoy!

That’s it! They’re simple and so delicious! Plus you can store these in the fridge for up to 1 week, meaning that they’re great to make up in bulk on the weekend and take with you on a busy working day!
