Directions


  • For the bottom layer, add coconut oil to a large bowl. Slowly drop in cacao powder, whisking as you go. When all is added and clumps are gone, add coconut nectar and vanilla. Whisk until incorporated. Add shredded coconut and hemp seeds. Mix with a spoon, or your hands, until every-thing is covered in chocolate. Press mixture evenly into prepared pan and transfer to the freezer to cool.


  • Then, prepare the caramel layer by adding the tahini, coconut nectar and vanilla to a saucepan and heating on low heat for 1-2 minutes, just until incorporated. You do not want the mix to boil, just get it hot and continue to stir until the mixture begins to hold together slightly. Remove the pan from the freezer; top the base with caramel and even out with a spoon. Place back in the freezer.

  • To prepare the top layer, add water to a large saucepan, cover and bring to a boil. Add chocolate to a heatproof bowl and set the bowl over top of the saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Keep the bowl over top of the saucepan until all chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Once melted, take the bars out from the freezer and drizzle the melted chocolate over top.


  • Cover pan and freeze for at least 12 hours.

Notes


Caramel and chocolate is right up there along with peanut butter and chocolate as one of the best flavor combos ever. I can’t get enough. These caramel-y, chocolate-y bars melt in your mouth as the perfect healthy treat.
