Raw Caramel Choc Slice

My best friend told me last week that I absolutely must try this recipe for Raw Caramel Slice, sooner rather than later.  A friend of hers from work brought it in to share and my dessert aficionado friend reported it as spectacular. I duly bought the ingredients and had them sitting in the pantry until yesterday when I finally had time to give it a try. As usual, she was right. These are good.

I made a few adjustments by adding extra salt and I made my chocolate topping with cacao butter rather than coconut oil, but otherwise this amazing recipe is originally by Rachel of In Spaces Between – Raw Choc Caramel Bites.

Salted Caramel Choc Slice

BASE

1 CUP MACADAMIA NUTS
1 CUP ALMONDS
1 CUP MEDJOOL DATES

CARAMEL FILLING

1 CUP MEDJOOL DATES
2 TABLESPOONS COCONUT OIL
1 TEASPOON VANILLA EXTRACT
1/3 CUP WATER
2 PINCHES FLAKED SEA SALT

CHOCOLATE TOPPING

1/2 CUP CACAO OR DUTCH PROCESS COCOA
2 TABLESPOONS DARK AGAVE NECTAR
3/4 CUP GENTLY MELTED CACAO BUTTER
SMALL PINCH OF FLAKED SEA SALT

Base Whizz all the base ingredients in a food processor until combined. You want to keep a little bit of the nutty texture in there. Press into a square or rectangular tin and set aside.

Caramel Blend all ingredients in the food processor until smooth, adding water slowly as you go. The coconut oil when refrigerated will thicken the mixture. Spread this on top of the base and place it in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Chocolate Topping Melt the Cacao Butter in a double saucepan on a very, very low heat and stir until liquid. Blend with the cocoa, agave and salt until very smooth. Pour and spread it over the caramel layer, freeze or refrigerate for an hour and you’re done!

Tastes best cut into small, bite-sized pieces.
