Raw Nut, Caramel, Chocolate Slice.

One of my absolute favourite treats is a millionaire caramel shortbread so I fell in love with this amazingly yummy raw healthy treat!
The best bit? It's pretty quick and easy to make too :)

Here is what you are going to need: 

2 cups of Almonds. (I used a handful of walnuts too)
2 cups of Mejool Dates.
2 tbsp of Peanut Butter.
2 1/2 cups of Honey. (Maple Syrup for Vegan)
1 1/2 cups Coconut Oil.
1 1/2 cup Raw Cacao Powder
Pinch of Cinnamon.

And here is how to make it.....

Soak your nuts in water for 4-6 hours before making.

Once the nuts have been soaked,  drain and add the peanut butter, 1 cup of honey and 1 cup of dates into the blender and blend into a paste. (Add almond milk or water to help get the right consistency if needed)

Pack the nut mixture into a baking tray and place into the freezer.

 To make the caramel sauce heat 1 cup of dates in a pan with 2 cups of water for 5 minutes, drain then add to a blender with 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup coconut oil. Blend until smooth.

Take the baking tray out of the freezer and smooth the caramel sauce over the nut mixture. Place the tray back in the freezer.

To make the chocolate sauce: Melt 1 cup coconut oil, 1 1/2 cup raw cacao and 1 cup honey. Add in a pinch of cinnamon and mix until smooth.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the nut and caramel layers and place back into the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Take out the slice and cut into it and enjoy!!
