(recipe yields 10 servings)

 

 

Ingredients

  • 45g light butter
  • 25g vita fiber
  • 60g vanilla whey (isolate yields best macros)
  • 20g all purpose flour
  • stevia/splenda to taste
  • 70g melting caramel
  • 150g Dipping/melting chocolate (you will only use 60g for recipe)

 

Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, melt butter and vita fiber syrup together for about 15-20 seconds, until all butter is melted and warm.
  2. Stir in whey, all-purpose flour, and stevia/splenda to taste until dough is formed. Kneed dough with hands until it is no longer crumbly. You may have to add a little flour (if too sticky) or water (if too crumbly).
  3. Flatten dough onto parchment paper and shape dough into a large square using the sides of a knife or other flat surface. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, melt caramel for 10 seconds at a time until pliable but not completely melted. Quickly and evenly spread caramel over square dough and place back in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut out 10 candy bars by making 4 cuts horizontally and 1 cut vertically. Freeze bars for a few minutes.
  6. Melt chocolate in a small bowl or container. Ready-to-melt chocolate bowls are perfect if you can find them at your grocery store. Make sure chocolate is thoroughly melted; you’ll want it to be as thin of a consistency as possible for the best macros.
  7. Using a toothpick, dip bars in chocolate and place on parchment paper. I recommend putting the chocolate on the food scale and measuring how much you use on average, per bar. I also recommend only covering the tops and sides of the bar (leaving the bottom uncovered).
  8. Refrigerate bars for at least 30 minutes and enjoy!
