Recipe: Chocolate Cream Caramel Bars

Here’s a good recipe I came across on Pinterest that I made for Thanksgiving. It combines the taste of  chocolate and caramel together wonderfully and is pretty tasty. It also has some healthy ingredients including coconut oil and requires no baking. Give it a try if you like.

Chocolate Cream Caramel Bars

Crust:
1 cup almonds or other nuts (I used walnuts.)
1 cup dates
Pinch of salt (optional)

Caramel:
½ cup cashew butter (You can also use almond butter.)
½ cup coconut oil
1 cup dates

Chocolate cream:
1/3 cup coconut oil
2-3 tablespoons cacao powder
¼ cup preferred liquid sweetener (I used honey.)

To make the crust: process the nuts into a flour mix in your food processor, then add the dates and process until it all begins to stick together. Press into the bottom of a lined baking pan or bread pan and refrigerate. (I doubled the recipe and used a 9″ x 9″ glasss baking dish.)

To make both the caramel and mocha layers: just blend the ingredients in each list until smooth. Spread the caramel onto your crust, followed by the chocolate cream. Refrigerate until completely set; this will take a couple hours. (I actually put this in the freezer to speed up the process for each layer.)

Enjoy!
