These caramel slices are so delicious I finished them all in about 2 days… I found this recipe on foodmatters.com. I love all their recipes and documentaries, you should definitely check them out ! Anyway, back to the raw pecan caramel slices: they’re amazing, and you won’t taste that they actually contain so many amazing ingredients!! So rich and creamy, you won’t be able to stop eating them. Trust me! It looks like a lot of ingredients and hard work but it’s actually not difficult -and totally worth it ;-)x
Ingredients: Base - 1/2 cup of almonds - 1/2 cup of pitted dates (I used medjool dates) - 2 tbsp. coconut oil - 3 tbsp. raw cacao powder - 2 tbsp. raw honey Caramel Pecan Layer - 1 cup of pitted dates - 1/2 cup of coconut oil - 3 tbsp. tahini - 1 tsp. vanilla - 2 tbsp. raw honey - 1/4 cup chopped pecans Top layer - 1/4 cup coconut oil - 1/4 cup maple syrup - 1/4 raw cacao powder - 1/4 cup chopped pecans Method To make the base first, pulse the dates, almonds, coconut oil, raw cacao and honey in the food processor into a crumble. Press this mixture into a lined slice tin, pressing down until smooth. Place in the freezer while you make the middle layer. To make the caramel pecan layer, place dates, coconut oil, tahini, vanilla and raw honey in the food processor. Blend until smooth. Add the chopped pecans and pulse lightly, you want the nuts to be throughout the mix. Pour the caramel pecan layer on top of the base, smooth this layer and return to freezer to set. For the top layer, melt the coconut oil and mix together with raw cacao and maple syrup until smooth. Once the caramel pecan layer is fully set, top with the chocolate layer and chopped nuts. Return to the freezer. To serve, remove from the freezer and slice while still frozen.
