These delicious sweet treats have been on our list of must try recipes for some time and we were seriously excited to make them first for the awesome OH NO RACHIO!
They are vegan, gluten free, raw and sugar free... and taste like total chocolately deliciousness.
This recipe is pretty simple as its raw so all you need is a food processor and a freezer. So here's what you'll need to get cracking...
+ 1 cup dates
+ 1/2 cup almonds
+ 1 tsp coconut oil
+ 1 cup dates
+ 1/2 cup coconut oil
+ 1 1/2tbsp tahini
+ 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup
+ 1 cup raw cashew nuts (covered and soaked in water for an hour ish)
+ 1/3 cup water
+ 1/4 cup coconut oil
+ 1/4 cup maple syrup
+ 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
Additional equipment - balloon whisk, non stick baking tray (We doubled our mixture and it fit perfectly into a 20x30cm tray) grease proof paper, food processor.
Base - whizz almonds, dates and coconut oil ina blender until it looks like super fine bread crumbs and begins to stick together. Press it flat into the bottom of a lined baking tray and place in freezer to set and form base layer for at least 15 minutes.
Caramel - Place all ingredients into a blender and whizz until creamy and smooth! Spread evenly onto the base layer of your slice and return to freezer.
Chocolate - put your coconut oil, cacao and syrup into a small sauce pan and melt on low. Use a whisk to bring together and gentle beat out any cacao lumps. set this aside to cool before spreading onto the top of your slice as the finishing touch! Return to freezer for another 15 mins then slice up and serve! Keep tray with remaining caramel slice covered in the fridge until its needed.... I guarantee it won't last long!
