INGREDIENTS

CARAMEL LAYER

  • 1 packed cup Medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup peanuts

NOUGAT LAYER

  • ¼ cup date caramel, above
  • ½ a cup oatmeal
  • ¼ a cup almond meal
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted

THE REST

  • 300g good quality dark chocolate

METHOD

  1. Place the dates in a bowl of hot water and set aside for 10 minutes to soften.
  2. Place the remaining caramel ingredients in a food processor EXCEPT for the peanuts (set them aside), once the dates have softened add these and process until a caramel consistency is achieved.
  3. Remove the caramel from the food processor and set aside in a bowl whilst you do the nougat. No need to wash the food processor the caramel residue helps with the nougat consistency.
  4. Add the nougat ingredients to the food processor and process until combined.
  5. Firmly press the nougat into a small narrow tin or Tupperware container (about 20cm x 7cm or something close will work) lined with baking paper.
  6. Place the caramel over the nougat layer and then press in the peanuts to the caramel layer.
  7. Place this in the freezer for 60-90 minutes, until firm.
  8. Remove from the tin or Tupperware container, then use a sharp knife to cut it into bar-sized pieces. Return these to the freezer while you melt your chocolate.
  9. Melt your chocolate over low heat in a saucepan, stirring constantly. Take it off the heat just before it is all melted and continue to stir until completely melted.
  10. Remove the bars from the freezer and coat in the chocolate. To do this use a shallow bowl so that it is easy to flip the bars. It is a good idea to use 2 forks, one on either side of the bar to flip and coat in the chocolate. Place the bars on a tray or plate lined with baking paper.
  11. Place the bars in the fridge for 20 minutes, to allow the chocolate to harden.
  12. Enjoy!

NOTES

These bars will keep good in the fridge for up to a week.

When coating the bars, try to do it as quick as you can before the chocolate hardens.
