  • pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
  • For the peanut butter caramel
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
  • For the chocolate
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cacao butter
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  1. For the base
  2. In a food processor, process the shredded coconut, coconut oil, maple, and salt until all ingredients are broken down into a flour-like consistency.
  3. For the peanut butter caramel
  4. Press out into a parchment-lined 8×8 baking dish and smooth down. Place into the freezer to set.
  5. Melt the coconut butter and then pour into your high speed blender with Medjool dates, peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt. Blend until all ingredients are smooth.
  6. Pour this out on top of the base and smooth down. Then add the peanuts and gently press down with a spoon pressing them into the caramel. Place into the freezer to set.
  7. For the chocolate
  8. Heat coconut oil, cacao butter in a saucepan over low heat until completely melted. Add in cacao powder and maple syrup and whisk together until fully mixed.
  9. Pour chocolate evenly on top of the caramel. Place back in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Remove from the freezer and let thaw for 30 minutes before cutting into slices. Cut upside down to avoid smashing the filling.
  10. Eat within 15-20 minutes after removing from the freezer! Store in the fridge for up to a week, freezer for 3-4 weeks.
