A healthier delicious treat that will leave you looking for more!! These chocolate salted caramel bars will leave you looking for more!! We make a tasty biscuit base, a smooth date caramel and then top it all off by covering them in chocolate!!
In a food processor blend the almonds first into a flour like consistency – then add the almond butter, dates, vanilla essence and the coconut oil, and blend until you reach a breadcrumb like texture.
Remove and put in a bowl and leave in the fridge to cool.
In the same food processor add all ingredients for the caramel layer and blend until super smooth and caramel-like, this may take up to 5 minutes depending on your food processor and you may need to add a little more water if it is a bit clumpy and not blending!
Once ready add in a bowl and leave to cool in the fridge.
Lay out your base layer onto a board and spread it out and compact so that it is tightly packed and even and approx 3cm high.
Take out your caramel layer and spread out the caramel layer on top of the base layer.
Chop the base and filling into even size aprox 6x3cm bars and put in the fridge to cool.
Melt your chocolate by using a water bath (or in a microwave).
Line a baking tray with baking parchment for your finished bars to cool on.
Once chocolate is melted, put one of the bars on a knife and hold over the bowl of melted chocolate. Ladle the melted chocolate over the bar to cover all sides, then place it on the lined baking tray to cool and for the chocolate to harden. Repeat with the remaining bars till they are all covered. Leave to cool at room temperature or if you can’t wait put them in the fridge to cool to speed things up!!
