Ingredients

200g Ombar 72% Raw Chocolate

Base

180g unsalted cashew nuts (soaked overnight)

2 tsp date syrup (or maple syrup)

pinch of sea salt

Caramel

75g medjool dates (soaked in hot water for 10 minutes)

1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil (room temperature)

1 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup

pinch of sea salt

 

Method

  1. Drain the cashews and blitz in a food processor until you have a fine crumb. Add your date syrup (or maple syrup) and a pinch of sea salt and blitz again until combined.
  2. Line a small rectangle dish with baking paper and press your cashew mix firmly into the base of the dish in an even layer. Pop in the freezer whilst you make your caramel.
  3. Drain your dates that have been soaking in hot water and pop them in the food processor along with your coconut oil, maple syrup and sea salt. Blitz for 2-3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape the mixture down the sides of the food processor. Stop once your mixture resembles caramel.
  4. Take your base out of the freezer and spread your caramel mixture over it in an even layer. Pop back into the freezer and leave for at least 1 hour to firm up.
  5. After an hour melt your chocolate in a bowl. Remove your base/caramel from the freezer and slice into bars.
  6. This is where it gets messy. Dip your bars into the melted chocolate ensuring an even covering. Scrape any excess chocolate off. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool the chocolate before eating.

When wrapped these will last in the fridge for a week or the freezer for one month.
