Healthy 3-Ingredient Snickers Bars

Anyone else a fan of the classic Snickers bars?
They're the perfect combination of caramel, peanuts and chocolate and, in my opinion, the BEST candy bar out there. (If you're ready to debate this, feel free to drop me a comment down below!)
If you're like me and love a good chocolate bar now and again, but you also have goals to look & feel like your best and healthiest self - you've come to the right place.
This is literally the EASIEST way to satisfy that candy bar craving with three simple, healthy(ish) ingredients for about 100 calories per serving. Yup, that's all! Just 3 delicious ingredients, a bit of freezing time, and you've got yourself a healthy version of everyone's fave candy bar.
They're chocolatey, caramelly, and peanutty (neither of which are actual words, I realize) and are just soooo freaking delicious, you'll likely end up eating the whole batch. (I know I did.)
Recipe available below!
INGREDIENTS: [1 per serving]
1 medjool date, pitted
1.5 tsp crunchy peanut butter (can use smooth if preferred)
1 tbsp melted dark (or semisweet) chocolate
Line a baking sheet or serving plate with parchment paper
Using a sharp knife, slice your dates vertically down the middle (remove the pit if not already pitted), making sure that you don't fully slice to the other side.
Scoop your peanut butter into your date and loosely close again
Freeze for 15-30 minutes, or until dates are solid
In a small bowl, melt chocolate in a microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time until fully melted
Drop date into bowl and toss around with a fork until all sides are coated
Place chocolate-coated date onto parchment-lined baking sheet
Freeze for another 15-30 minutes, or until dates are solid
Once dates are solid, you can keep them in the freezer or fridge in a storage container for as long as they last (trust me - they won't last long!)
