Jersey Caramel and Chocolate Slice.

This ones easy as pie. As long as you have a good blender you can whip this one up in 5 minutes. I came across this recipe and it is a healthy spin on the old confectionary lolly "jersey caramel". My first taste, I could see the similarities in flavour but not texture, and I felt it needed another dimension. Which is why I added the chocolate layer. This one is best cut into small pieces eaten straight from the fridge or freezer. With such little ingredients you can whip this one up any time of the day or night.

  • 4 cups desiccated or shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dried dates

What to do:
  • Place dates and coconut in blender and blend on high speed for 3-5 minutes until the mixture holds together. If after 5 minutes the mixture still resembles bead crumbs add 1-2 Tblsp water to help it bind together. Press into a lined square baking tin and refridgerate.

Chocolate layer:

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 2 Tblsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 Tblsp coconut oil.

What to do:
  • Combine coconut dates and cacao in blender and blend until well chopped and the mix comes together. Add oil and blend until well combined on low speed. Do not over mix once you add the oil otherwise it may separate. Spread chocolate layer over the caramel layer and refridgerate until well set. With a sharp knife cut into 24 pieces.
