A delicious and healthy Raw Caramel Slice Recipe for the whole family to enjoy. Dairy free, nut free, vegan friendly and incredibly simple to make. What's not to love.
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • For the base:
  • 1 cup plain cashews
  • ½ cup dates, pitted
  • ¼ cup dessicated coconut
  • For the caramel:
  • ⅓ cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • For the chocolate topping:
  • 100g good quality dairy free chocolate (or alternatively use my homemade chocolate recipe linked above).
Instructions
  1. Prepare a slice tin by lining it with baking paper. The size of the tin needs to be approximately 15cm x 15cm. If your tin is too large simply prepare half of a slice tin with baking paper.
  2. Add the cashews to a blender and blend until a coarse consistency is reached. Add the dates and coconut and blend until the mixture sticks together when pressed but isn't sticky. If the mixture is too sticky, add additional coconut one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
  3. Spoon the base mixture into the base of the tin and press down until the base is covered and flat. Use clean wet hands or the back of a wet spoon to smooth the base if needed. Place in the freezer while preparing the filling.
  4. Rinse the blender. Add the tahini, coconut oil and pure maple syrup to the blender and blend until smooth (alternatively whisk in a bowl until smooth).
  5. Remove the base from the freezer and pour the filling on top of the base, spreading it evenly.
  6. Return to the freezer while preparing the chocolate top.
  7. To prepare the chocolate top, break the dairy free chocolate into a microwave safe bowl or double boiler pot. If using a microwave, heat on high for 1 minute, carefully remove and stir until melted. If using a double boiler, fill a pot with water and bring to the boil and then turn off the heat. Carefully place a heat resistant bowl on top of the pot of boiling water and break the chocolate into the bowl. Stir with a spoon until melted.
  8. Remove the slice from the freezer and drizzle with melted chocolate. Finally, return to the freezer and allow to set for 1 hour.
  9. Once set, slice and store in an airtight container in the freezer.
