Honey and peanut bars with chocolate

I don’t know if you love sweet stuff or if you’re more of a savory kind of person. At this moment (and believe me, it could change at any minute) i’m a little bit more on the savory side. I know what you’re thinking (uhm, you’re talking about savory stuff but I’m reading something about honey peanut bars): You are right. These incredible bars (I havent even mentioned the taste yet) are sweet and savory at the same time. When we’re talking sweet and savory I automatically think about peanut butter and chocolate. Or I think about these incredible units: chocolate covered pretzels). It’s my favorite kind of candy. This is quite close to peanut butter as we’ve got peanuts in here. Anyways, I’m drifting off. I’ll cut to the chase: These honey and peanut bars with chocolate are delicious! They are sweet AND savory at the same time. There, I’ve said it. Let’s make them!

Ingredients for these honey peanut bars with chocolate:

  • 500 grams roasted and salted peanuts
  • 250 grams honey
  • 5 tbsp cinnamon
  • 400 grams dark chocolate (when you’re lactose intolerant go for the dairy free option)
  • Optional: sea salt


Chop the peanuts into small chunks (if I were you i’d throw them into the food processor).

Warm up the honey and stir it through the peanuts. Add the cinnamon and stir some more.

Cover a baking tray (or brownie pan) with parchment paper and throw in the peanut mixture.

Flatten it until you’re satisfied enough.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (au bain marie) and gently pour it over the mixture.

If you’ve chosen the sea salt option then this is your time to shine! Go for it and sprinkle sea salt on top of the chocolate.

Place it into the freezer and let it set for at least a couple hours. Cut into bars or squares (it’s your party do as you see fit) and enjoy!
