Chocolate Peanut Slices

Keeping in with the peanut theme at the moment… I made a batch of peanut butter recently so am using it in everything! These slices are quite rich in fats. I have used a lot of nuts in them as well as peanut butter and cacao butter in the chocolate topping. But they’re good fats!ย And they taste delicious! I have added quite a bit of salt to this recipe, I am usually low in sodium in my bloods so I can afford to put lots of salt on everything, it’s a perk of not eating processed foods, no hidden extras! I love salted caramel too and this recipe allows me to get that fix!
