INSTRUCTIONS

1. Soak cashews in water for 1-2 hours. (you can also boil the cashews for 20 minutes, if short on time)

2. Make the raw brownie base first: blend the flax seeds into a fine flour and then blend all the ingredients together, until it is a dough-like, sticky consistency. Line a 5-in pan with parchment paper and press dough down firmly into the pan. 

3. Make the cream layer: blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Pour the cream layer over the no-bake brownie base. Place in freezer until firm (about 1 hour).

4. Make the caramel layer: put all the ingredients for this layer into a saucepan, except for the peanuts or seeds you're using. Bring ingredients to a boil, stirring occasionally. Let this mixture simmer for 15 minutes until it thickens. Pour the caramel layer over the cream layer. Place peanuts or sunflower seeds (nut-free) on top. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. 

5. Make the chocolate layer: melt cocoa butter and the coconut oil in a pan, on low-medium heat. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. (you can also use a microwave and head on 20-30 seconds, stirring until melted). Pour the chocolate onto the caramel layer and place in the freezer for 15-30 minutes. 

6. Cut snickers bars into thick slices and enjoy!
