DIRECTIONS

First up you need to prepare the base and leave that to set. To prepare the base…

Mix cashews and almond flour in blender.

When the dates have been soaked and drained, add the remaining base ingredients and blend until mixture sticks together nicely.

Press firmly and evenly into a tray and place in the fridge to set and leave for at least 3-4 hours (use baking paper to allow easy removal of the slice).

Put all of the filling ingredients in your blender and mix until you get a very smooth consistency.

Pour the filling over the set base and chill in the freezer for at least 4 hours. 

To make the chocolate topping, melt coconut butter on your stove top or in the microwave (be careful not to burn) and stir in cocoa powder and honey/maple syrup.

After you've mixed the topping, spread over caramel layer and return to freezer for at least 30 minutes to set.
