What is Date Bark?

So date bark- it’s essentially a “healthy” chocolate bar. Do I think it’s healthy? Not really. Do I think it’s better for you than a chocolate bar? Sure. The main reason being that you have control over the ingredients and the amount of each your adding to the recipe. You’re left with a homemade snack made with real ingredients you bought yourself, which in the long run will be better for you than a chocolate bar that’s been sitting on a store shelf for 6 months. 


The classic viral date bark consists of dates, peanut butter, peanuts, and chocolate to replicate a Snickers bar. I’ve decided to take a different direction with it and swap out some ingredients and add in cashew butter and hazelnuts. I prefer hazelnuts, and since we’re getting rid of the peanuts, we may as well swap the peanut butter too for cashew butter. There are really endless combinations to get a similar result, so let’s get into my recipe for Date Bark!
