Method for the base:
  1. Pulse dates, almonds & coconut oil in a food processor until it resembles fine crumbs and sticks together when pressed. Pour mixture into a slice tin lined with non-toxic greaseproof paper and press it down to form the base. Place it in the freezer.
 
Method for the caramel:
  1. Put dates, coconut oil, tahini, maple syrup, cashews and water into a blender and pulse until completely combined and smooth (you may need a little extra water to help blend it but try and keep it to a minimum). Pour caramel mixture on top of the base and return it to the freezer to set.
 
Method for the top chocolate layer:
  1. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup and cacao to a small saucepan on really low heat and stir until it is combined and resembles chocolate sauce (this should only take a couple of minutes). Spread the chocolate sauce on top of the caramel filling – Make sure the caramel is set before you do this step! Pop it back into the freezer for an hour and then remove it from the tin, slice it up and store it in an airtight container in the fridge.
 
Tip: Remove the caramel slice from the tin and cut it as soon as you take it out of the freezer.
