Makes 12

Ingredients:

Base layer:

200g pitted dates

80g cashews

80g hazelnuts

2 tbsp raw cacao powder

Pinch of salt

 

Top layer:

1 ripe avocado

3 tbsp peanut or cashew butter, smooth

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

2 tbsp maple syrup

4 tbsp cacao powder

90g (36 pieces) MiiRO Chocolate Peanuts

 

Method:

1. Cover the dates in boiling water and soak for 10 minutes to soften, if needed.

2. Add the cashew nuts and hazelnuts to a food processor and pulse to break down into smaller pieces. Remove from the blender and place to one side.

3. Add the drained dates to the blender and process until jammy. Pour in the crushed nuts, 2 tbsp cacao powder and a pinch of salt and process until combined and sticky.

4. Pour the mixture into a lined tray and press down firmly to create an even base layer.

5. Clean out the blender and add the avocado flesh, peanut or cashew butter, melted coconut oil, syrup, and 4 tbsp cacao powder. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary.

6. Pour over the base layer, top with the MiiRO Chocolate Peanuts and allow to set in the freezer for 30 minutes or the fridge for 1-2 hours. Chop into 12 slices and store in the fridge.
