  • pinch sea salt

Caramel layer

  • 150 g natural almonds, or a mix with brazils, macadamias, etc
  • 10 dates
  • 120 g Raw Honey, or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 65 g organic extra virgin coconut oil

  • 200 g raw cacao butter
  • 80 g raw cacao powder
  • pinch sea salt

Recipe's preparation

  1. Base layer

    Add cashews to the TM bowl and chop on speed 9 for 5 seconds.

    Add coconut oil, maple syrup and a pinch of salt and mix on speed 7 for 20 seconds.

    Turn out into slice tin lined with grease proof paper and press to the bottom.  Put into freezer to set while moving onto next step.


    Caramel layer

    Without washing the TM bowl add nuts (almonds, brazils, macadamias), chop on speed 9 for 5 seconds.

    Add dates, honey, vanilla bean paste, coconut oil and sea salt, blend on speed 7 for 20 seconds.  Take off lid and scrape down.

    Mix for 5 minutes on “raw temperature” 37 degrees on speed 3 until caramel is smooth-ish to spread.  Tip – if using honey instead of maple syrup a little water might be needed to get a smooth caramel to spread.

    Spread over frozen base layer and return to freezer.


    Raw Chocolate for coating bars

    Add coconut sugar to a clean, dry TM bowl and mill on speed 9 for 10 seconds.

    Add raw cacao butter and melt on 37 degrees for 20 minutes on speed 2.  If not melted in this time, repeat.

    Add raw cacao powder and stir on 37 degrees for 20 minutes on speed 2.

    If you are not ready for next step you can keep the melted chocolate stirring on 37 degrees on speed 1 until you are ready to put it altogether.  The longer the chocolate stirs the smoother it gets – beautiful!



    Take frozen base and caramel from freezer and cut into small “fun sized” bar pieces.  Dip each bar into the raw chocolate and set on wax paper to firm up.  Chocolate should set beautifully around each piece.  Once first chocolate layer has set, dip the pieces a second time.  Return to freezer.  Bars may be kept in fridge once initially set in the freezer.



    Any excess chocolate pour off onto grease proof paper to set as plain dark chocolate.

    I then make a chocolate custard in the TM bowl instead of washing it out – we don’t want to waste a drop of that beautiful raw chocolate!
