    Happy Happy almost Valentine’s Day to YOU! I’m not much of a Valentine’s Day fan (never was) but I am all about eating chocolate, getting flowers and being kind and loving to people daily, so it’s just another reason to show yourself or those around you some extra love today.

    Idea number one: make these Paleo Dark Chocolate Twix Bars. They are the dreamiest recipe ever. Made with a homemade shortbread cookie bottom, middle caramel layer and dark chocolate topping. I wasn’t sure what I was doing in the kitchen when I made these since it is pretty hard to replicate something that is already delicious but since you won’t find me eating a packaged twix bar anymore, we needed a healthier alternative.

    I use Manuka Honey to sweetened these paleo twix bars and they add just the perfect amount of sweetness. I love using Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey as you saw in my Peanut Butter Truffle Bars. Wedderspoon is sharing many simple ways that we can integrate the benefits of Manuka Honey into your daily routine. Their KFactor 16 Honey is perfect to add to smoothies, tea, coffee, top your dessert off with, anything! Plus using it as a DIY mask is always an option.

    These Paleo Dark Chocolate Twix Bars have the crunchiest cookie base and the middle caramel is made with nut butter, some grain-free flour and of course Manuka Honey. You can make these and enjoy them as a rich and satisfying snack, dessert, anything! They freeze very well so if you want to only enjoy some and save the rest for later, that’s always an option too!

    WHAT YOU NEED

    Paleo baking flour (I used this mix but see below for sub recommendation)

    Coconut oil

    Wedderspoon Manuka Honey

    Vanilla extract

    Creamy nut butter

    Cacao powder

    Hi Rachel!

    Such a big fan of your blog and your recipes. I made this tonight on a whim and it came out freaking PERFECT. I was skeptical at first of if I had made the caramel filling right.. before it is cooled it didn’t have quite the taste I thought. But once It came out of the freezer and all the parts were put together, it was absolutely amazing. I’m continuously impressed with your brand. The way you present your recipes on instagram is always gor.ge.ous. Your blog is so easy to use, super clean a sweet, and your recipes are delicious! I’m aspiring to be a nutrition/food blogger and I devour yours for inspiration. So just wanted to say thanks!! And anyone who’s thinking about making this should stop thinking and do it. Cuz its delicious. And I need to get these out of my house immediately before I devour them all.

    Hi!
    This is the second time I’ve made these and they are aaaaamaaazinggg!
    However, I am having trouble with the cacao powder on top. When I melt it, it hardens up to quickly and isn’t liquid form when I try to put it over the top.
    Any suggestions?
    Love love love all your stuff!
    Thanks!!!

    Hi Rachel I tried your paleo chocolate chip banana bread and it was perfect but I’m having some difficulty with the base of the paleo chocolate Twix bar. I only had coconut flour so used 2 cups for the base and after 20 minutes in the oven at the required temperature it burnt 🙄 any tips for where I went wrong here? Thanks so much! Love your recipe ideas and hope to try many many more xxx
