Ingredients

Coconut Base

  • 1 Cup coconut flour
  • 6 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 Tablespoons rice malt [substitute: raw honey; maple syrup]

Caramel centre

  • ½  Cup almond butter
  • 15  Pitted dates
  • 1    Tablespoon coconut syrup [can be omitted]
  • 1    Tablespoon raw honey [substitute: maple syrup; rice malt syrup]

Chocolate Topping

  • ¼ Cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ Cup cacao
  • 2  Tablespoons raw honey [substitute: maple syrup; rice malt syrup]
  • 2 Tablespoon canned coconut milk [can be omitted, usually adds a thicker creamier texture]
  • pinch of salt

 

Method

  1. Soak the dates in boiling water for 15 minutes to soften
  2. Line & grace a 6 x 6" square tin with baking paper & coconut oil
  3. Mix the base ingredients together until combined and forms a dough like texture [if you find the mixture wet, place in the freezer for 5-8 minutes]
  4. Press mixture into the bottom of the lined tin and place in the fridge while you make your caramel filling
  5. Using your nutri-bullet or food processor, blend the caramel centre ingredients until completely smooth & combined
  6. Using a spatula, evenly spread the caramel over the set coconut base [you may need to use baking paper to spread the caramel mixture if your spatula isn't doing the job] 
  7. Place square tin in the freezer to set while you make your chocolate topping
  8. Whisk your chocolate topping ingredients until smooth and glossy, ensuring there are no lumps & pour over your caramel centre mixture [you can lift your square tin off the table and slowly move it around to get that chocolate sauce into all the corners of your tin]
  9. Set in the freezer for 1 hour or until the chocolate topping looks firm
  10. Slice using a hot clean knife into squares [to achieve perfectly square cubes, slice off 1cm of each side of the slice & then cut into 9 even cubes

This needs to be stored cold, ideally in the refrigerator or in the freezer if you are going to travel somewhere with your creation!

 

Enjoy!
