RAW CACAO PEPPERMINT SQUARES

INGREDIENTS


Base:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups Nature’s Lane Desiccated Coconut

  • 8 medjool dates, seeds removed

  • 1 tablespoon of Nature’s Lane Raw Cacao

  • 1 tsp vanilla

Peppermint Cream:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups raw cashews

  • 1/2 cup Nature’s Lane Desiccated Coconut

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2 heaped tablespoons of honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint

Chocolate:

  • 2 tbs honey

  • 3 tbs Nature’s Lane Raw Cacao

  • 4 tbs Nature’s Lane Coconut Oil

METHOD

  1. Line a loaf tin with baking paper hanging over the sides for easy removal.

  2. Place the base ingredients into your food processor and blend at high speed until the dates and coconut resemble crumbs and the mixture is sticking together. Press the mixture firmly into a loaf tin. Place in the fridge while you make the peppermint layer.

  3. To make the peppermint layer blend the cashews, salt and coconut at high speed until you have a smooth consistency, you may need to scrape the mixture back onto the blades and pulse this a few times. Add in the honey and peppermint and blend just enough to combine. Press this mixture over your base and return the slice to the fridge.

  4. Place the chocolate ingredients into your processor and blend until the mixture resembles melted chocolate. Pour this mixture over your slice and spread it out evenly.

  5. Place in the fridge to set and to store.

  6. Enjoy!
