Healthy Snickers Bars

I have been wanting to make these yummy guilt free bars for a while now. Saint Nicholas stopped by the other night and dropped off some chocolate so it was time to make some healthified snickers!

Prepare caramel filling in food processor, pulsing until you get a creamy caramel texture.  Spread caramel over cooled nougat layer.

Place in freezer for 1-2 hours or overnight like I did.  Slice into 12 snack size bars or 6 regular size bars.  Prepare chocolate over double boiler.  Coat bars with chocolate and place on rack or parchment lined dish, this can get tricky and you will get messy but worth it!

Place back in freezer to harden shell.  Store in fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
