“Take 5” Cups

Take 5 bars were a treat we loved growing up – we’re obsessed with that sweet and salty combo. So (of course) we had to recreate them.

Ingredients

The delicious combination of sweet and salty comes from just a few simple ingredients:

Vegan chocolate chips (these are our favorites)

Homemade caramel (made from dates, vanilla, and salt)

Peanuts

Peanut butter (this is our go-to brand)

Pretzels (you can use a gluten-free option)

In our opinion, these taste even better than the original Take 5 bars we grew up eating. In addition to being animal-friendly, these treats are made from good-for-you ingredients, so go ahead, dig in!

Make sure to let us know which candies we should recreate next on our Instagram!
