If you’re a chocolate + peppermint fan then you’re gonna love this!
For the base you will need:
1 and 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
8 medjool dates – don’t forget to remove the stone!
1 tablespoon of cacao
1 tsp vanilla
For the filling you will need:
1 and 1/2 cups cashews (you could use almond if you like but I just LOVE cashews!)
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
Pinch of salt
2 well heaped tablespoons of honey or pure maple syrup
5-8 drops (depends how minty you like it!) of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil (you can buy this in my retail store here. (You can add your own peppermint flavour if you wish but the purity of this oil adds the most incredible burst of peppermint).
For the topping you will need:
2 tbs honey or pure maple syrup
3 tbs cacao
3 tbs coconut oil
Blend the base ingredients into a crumb texture, press the mixture firmly into a loaf tin. Place in the fridge or freezer to set.
Thoroughly blend the cashews, salt and coconut until you have a nice smooth consistency, you may need to scrape down the sides a few times. Add in the honey or maple syrup + peppermint and blend until combined. Press the mixture firmly over your base.
Blend the topping ingredients over a very low heat until blended and melted together. Pour this mixture over your slice and spread evenly.
Place back in the fridge or freezer to set. Then slice + serve! Enjoy!
