Ingredients:

 

Base

  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 vanilla bean pod, scraped
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

‘Caramel’ Filling

  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked for 4 hours
  • 2 tbsp melted cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp raw Maca powder
  • Tiny pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar

 

Ganache Topping

  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar

 

Method:

 

  • Line an 8 x 4″ loaf pan/tray with cling wrap

For the base:

  • In a blender, process the macadamia nuts until they become a fine flour
  • Add remaining ingredients, then spoon into tray and press down
  • Pop into the freezer for 15 minutes and clean blender

Filling:

  • Drain cashews, then blend all ingredients together until smooth
  • Pour on top of the base and freeze for a further 15 minutes

Topping:

  • Whisk cacao powder and oil together until smooth- you may need to add more coconut oil depending on how thin or thick the ganache is
  • You can add 1 tsp coconut sugar if you desire, as it is quite bitter
  • Top the slice with the ganache and store in the refrigerator until ready to slice and serve
