Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

Base

Quantity Ingredient
230g raw cashew nuts
40g desiccated coconut
115g soft medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Caramel

Quantity Ingredient
40g tinned coconut cream
200g soft medjool dates, pitted
150g hulled tahini
30g coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground sea salt

Chocolate

Quantity Ingredient
5g cacao powder
100g coconut oil, melted
85ml maple syrup

Method

  1. Line the base and sides of a 17 cm × 17 cm square cake tin with baking paper, ensuring the paper hangs over the sides of the tin for easy removal.
  2. Blend all the base ingredients and 30 ml water in a food processor until a dough is formed and the mixture sticks together when pressed. Add more water if the mixture is too dry.
  3. Using a wet spoon, press the base mixture evenly into the prepared tin and freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Blend all the caramel ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor until smooth. The mixture will look a little split. Transfer to a small saucepan over a medium–low heat and cook until the mixture comes together and forms a smooth, thick caramel. Spread the caramel on top of the base. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  5. Mix all the chocolate ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Spread on top of the caramel. Freeze for 2 hours.
  6. Remove the slice from the tin, slice and serve.
  7. Store remaining slices in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Note

  • You can also use 130 g of vegan milk chocolate to melt on top instead of making your own.
