Raw Vegan Caramel Slice

Is there anything better than a dessert full of crunchy nuts, gooey caramel and decadent chocolate? We don't think so! 

This rich caramel slice by Zoe Lyons of @wildblend was featured in our Winter Retreat Yourself Magazine and is the ideal solution when a sweet craving hits. It's raw, it's vegan, it's gluten-free and it's full of wholesome ingredients, making this slice the perfect crowd-pleaser. 

Raw Vegan Caramel Slice

INGREDIENTS:

Base Layer:

  • 1 cup raw almonds (or walnuts)
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, soaked and pitted (approx. 12 dates)
  • 1-2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp nut mylk (optional)

Caramel Layer:

  • 1 cup Medjool dates, soaked & pitted (approx. 12 dates)
  • ½ cup cashews, soaked
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp almond butter (or tahini)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. For the base, add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until a sticky cookie dough forms. Add one tablespoon of water if the mixture is too dry.
  2. Press base into a lined (20 x 20cm) slice pan until firmly packed.
  3. For the caramel add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
  4. Spread the caramel evenly onto the base and put aside into freezer to set.
  5. For the chocolate top, whisk together the ingredients until smooth.
  6. Spread the chocolate sauce evenly on top of the caramel layer. Make sure the caramel is set before you do this step!
  7. Pop it back into the freezer for two hours or overnight.
  8. Remove it from the pan, carefully slice into squares with a hot knife and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Tip: Thaw for 20 minutes before cutting into slices or the chocolate layer will crack. For ease with cutting, run a really sharp knife under hot water before dividing up the slice. This also helps to slice the pieces clean and evenly. The thicker the top chocolate layer is the harder it will be to cut.
