- 375 g almonds
- 70 g medjool dates
- 50 g coconut oil
- 1 pinch salt
- 500 g medjool dates
- 50 g coconut oil
- 1/4-1/2 tsp salt
- 1 vanilla bean
- 30 g cacao powder
- 70 g coconut oil
- 60-100 g maple or rice malt syrup, depending on how sweet you like your chocolate
Put all ingredients in TM bowl and blend 20-40s / spd 9 until the mixture resembles crunchy breadcrumbs.
Press into a rectangle tray (25x30cm) lined with baking paper. If you have a small little wooden roller (I found one in a $2 shop) you can flatten it out with that. Otherwise just press down firmly with your hands. Place in the freezer to harden while you do the next step.
Put all ingredients in TM bowl and blend on sp 9-10 until the mixture resembles an almost smooth caramel. This could take 1-2 minutes.
Spread the caramel evenly over the base. I put some gloves on, wet them slightly and smooth it over. Again you can run the wooden roller over it to get a more even result.
Place in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate topping.
You can also use a good quality chocolate in stead of the cacao/coconut oil/syrup mixture. Make sure your bowl is clean and dry - water and chocolate do not mix. I usually use the Turbo function to get rid of any moisture on the blades.
Put all ingredients in the TM bowl and melt 2-3 min / 50 degrees / sp 2. Pour over the caramel and spread thinly. Alternatively you can pipe the chocolate in a ripple form. Refrigerate for about 30 min before cutting. Store in the fridge.
