Nüd Prüns: More Gloop, Less Poop

This is an update to my previous post about how to make homemade Nakd bars.

While the original recipe is very delicious and tastes a lot like the actual Nakd bar, I recently tried using prunes in place of the dates. The prunes are a lot juicier, so the bars ended up holding together a lot better (the previous recipe can be a little dry and crumbly). However, as prunes pack a more potent flavour that dates, I had to tinker (translation: increase) the amount of cocoa and orange I used. While I was tinkering, I came up with a way to make more bar-, and less poop-, shaped bars. Here’s the updated recipe.

Materials:
0.5 cup raisins
0.5 cup prunes
0.5 cup raw almonds
3.5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Zest/rind of 3 large oranges

Methods:
Put all the ingredients in your blender, and process until everything is well ground.
Make a ball of dough out of the ground ingredients.
To make your six bars into a rectangular prism shape, press into a bread pan or pyrex baking dish. Using bare hands press to desired thickness (your hands will get mucky, but you will have a very yummy time cleaning them). If your pyrex is too big, press to one end and use the edge of a knife to make the non-encased edge straight. Cover and place into the fridge for an hour before cutting into 6 and serving.

    1. I can’t see why not… let me know how they turn out! I would definitely use dates instead of prunes for white chocolate, otherwise the chocolate flavour will get completely lost!
