Base Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cashews, unsalted and unroasted
  • 1/2 cup blanched almonds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened or melted

Caramel Filling:

  • 1/4 cup maple butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened or melted

Chocolate Coating:

  • 1/2 cup melted cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder, unsweetened
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Yield: 12 bars

1. In a food processor, pulse the cashews and blanched almonds until fine crumbles form (Image 1). Add the coconut flour, and pulse again for only a couple seconds until combined (Image 2).
2. Add the maple syrup and coconut oil, and pulse again until it sticks together but is still crumbly (Image 3).
3. Press the crust into the silicone molds (Image 4), and transfer to the freezer.
4. While the crust sets, prepare the filling. In a saucepan, melt the maple butter, maple syrup and coconut oil mixture on low heat (Image 5). Set aside to cool for several minutes.


5. Add the mixture to a shaker, and shake well. You’ll notice it immediately thicken and become caramel-like (Image 1).
6. Spread the caramel filling over each base. Store in the freezer overnight for the caramel to firm up (Image 2).
7. Once firm, make the chocolate. In a saucepan, melt the cacao butter on low heat (Image 3). Add the cacao powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, and stir until smooth (Image 4). Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
8. Dip each bar into the chocolate mixture, coating them completely. The chocolate will almost immediately set. Transfer back to the freezer for five minutes until firm (Image 5).

Tip: You can double dip if the chocolate coating is too thin (this can happen if the chocolate is too warm). Transfer to the fridge until ready to serve, or store in the fridge.
