Literally one of my favourite recipes I have made thus far… I am in love with caramel Slab! Or caramel slices I guess you would call them, however I like o make mine super thick as the topping is so naturally sweet it works well with a hefty base, which in turn makes it a slab! These are super delicious, super moreish but also very filling. Simple to make and completely Raw Vegan and Plantbased.
I have also made a little video tutorial for this one in case you prefer video format! So go check that out HERE!
What You Need;
1 Cup Almonds (You can use any nut you prefer or have to hand, or even a mixture!)
1/2 Cup of Shredded coconut
Splash of water if needed
1 and 1/2 cups of dates (I used Medjool)
1 1/2 Cups Dates
1 Tsp of Vanilla
1 TBSP of Coconut sugar
3 TBSP Raw Cacao Powder (I used Pacari )
5 TBSP of Agave Nectar (or any other liquid sweeter you prefer)
What You Do;
Step 1; I made the base first, to do this just add whichever nuts you decided on into the food processor and blend until they turn into a crumble.
Step 2; Add the other ingredients for the base into the mixture and combine until it forms a nice sticky crumble base.
Step 3; Pour this into a pan (use parchment paper if needed to help get It out after setting) Press down hard with the back of your spoon to create a solid thick base!
Step 4; Make the caramel, Add the ingredients into your food processor (clean out if you want to but it isn’t really a big deal if you don’t) blend until it forms a nice sauce. I added around 1/4 cup of water to mine to help it thin down. Add whatever amount you deem necessary to get the consistency you want!
Step 5; Pour this over your base and leave to one side.
Step 6; Make your chocolate Sauce, You will notice that the caramel and sauce for this recipe is minimal, as the base, and toppings are all super sweet I feel it is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. You could double these though if you wanted to! Believe me it will be tooth killing sweet thought! To create the sauce, add the cacao powder and the sweeter to a bowl and mix with a fork or spoon. This will take a few minutes to combine. Have patience and it will gradually get there! Once it has formed a nice sauce (add more sweeter if it needs to be thinner) pour this over the caramel slab. It will sit if gentle on top of the caramel or you can swirl the two together if you wish!
Pop in the fridge for a few hours to help set. You can also freeze this if you wish.
I hope you enjoyed this one. It is a firm family favourite at the Marsden house now and I literally now want to make another after writing this.. I may even double the recipe as I know I won’t get a look in once everyone tries it again… I may have to hide some hehe
