Ingredients:

Base

  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 2TBS coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ½ cup almonds 

Caramel

  • ½ cup unhulled tahini
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 generous grind of Himalayan sea salt

Chocolate

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup raw cacao
  • ½ cup rice malt syrup

Method:

Line a small baking dish with baking paper and set aside. 

Blend the base ingredients in a food processor until a dense, crumb consistency. Place the mixture into the baking dish and press the mixture evenly across the dish using the back of a spoon or your fingertips. Place in the fridge.

Wipe the food processer clean and add the caramel ingredients. Blend until smooth and combined. Remove base mixture from the fridge and pour caramel mixture over. Using slightly wet fingertips, gently spread the caramel evenly over the base mixture. Place back in the fridge.

Add the chocolate ingredients to a small pot and place over a low heat. Gently stir the mixture until the coconut oil is melted and the mixture is thick and combined. Take of the heat. Remove base/caramel from the fridge and pour the chocolate evenly over the caramel layer. Use a knife or back of the spoon to spread it.

Place the slice in the fridge to set for at least four hours (preferably overnight), before slicing into small squares.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Makes 12 pieces.
