How many of you know a loved one with peanut allergies? Have no fear; I have created a new dessert bar that tastes like peanut butter and chocolate but sans the nuts. By using the magic ingredient: sunflower butter, the kids or the kid in you can indulge.
I was browsing through one of my favorite cookbooks, “How To Be A Domestic Goddess” and altered Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Peanut Butter bar recipe. I hope to help you out so much that you nickname your Denver Cooking Examiner “The Allergy Goddess”.
Sunflower butter also offers a great source of protein with no trans fats and helps to reduce the risk of heart disease so enjoy!
Peanut Allergy Chocolate Bars:
1 cup of powdered sugar 10X
¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup unsalted butter
¾ cup sunflower butter
12 oz. milk chocolate chips
1 tbs. unsalted butter
Grease a 9-inch square pan. Stir all of the ingredients above together with a spoon or mixer. Press the sand-like mixture into the pan and press to make an even surface.
Next, melt the chocolate and butter on medium in the microwave for one to two minutes. Stir until smooth and immediately pour over base. Place the pan in the refrigerator to set. When chocolate is firm, cut into squares.
