BASE

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

PEPPERMINT FILLING

  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 cups raw cashews (soaked overnight)
  • 1/4 pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 4-5 drops peppermint oil (depending on how strong you like it)

CHOCOLATE TOPPING

  • 1/4 cup raw cacao
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

What to do

  1. Using your food processor or high powered blender, combine the ingredients for the base and pulse until a crumble mixture is formed. Press mixture firmly into a lined small slice tray.
  2. Place mixture into the freezer for 1 hour to set while you create the filling.
  3. While your base is in the freezer setting, combine all filling ingredients in the food processor or high-powered blender and process until well combined and smooth. Add a little more water if needed to create a smooth mixture.
  4. Remove base from freezer and top evenly with the peppermint filling. Smooth this layer and place back in the freezer for 1-2 hours.
  5. Once your filling is set, prepare your chocolate topping by melting cacao, coconut oil & maple syrup over a low temperature until well combined.
  6. Remove your slice from the freezer and layer evenly with the chocolate topping. Put back into the freezer for 1/2 an hour for the topping to set.
  7. Remove from the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving. Best to slice while frozen.
