A deliciously sweet treat, full of natural goodness and without refined sugars. You can cut this into slices and freeze if you like, to make an iced bar.

Ingredients:

Base

  1. 30g BonPom raw cacao powder
  2. 125g almonds
  3. 80g soft dates
  4. 3-4 tbsp melted coconut butter
  5. 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  6. Pinch of Himalayan pink salt

Caramel filling

  1. 170g soft dates, soaked for 15 minutes then drained
  2. 60g coconut syrup or yacon syrup
  3. 2 heaped tbsp almond nut butter
  4. 3 tbsp BonPom cacao butter melted
  5. 1 tbsp lucuma powder

Topping

  1. 250g BonPom cacao paste
  2. 2 tsp coconut oil

Method:

To make the slices

  1. First make the base. Grind up the almonds until fine. Place in a food processor with the remaining ingredients and blend until combined. It should come together to form a dough.
  2. Press into the base of a 20cm x 20cm baking tin lined with nonstick baking paper. Refrigerate until set.
  3. To make the caramel, place dates, nut butter, coconut syrup, lucuma and cacao butter in a food processor and process for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Spread the filling over the base and chill to firm.
  4. Place the chocolate topping ingredients in a pan and warm very gently until the chocolate has melted. Pour over the filling then place in the fridge for 2 hours to set. Freeze for 30 minutes then cut into slices and serve.
