Caramel Layer Ingredients


 
3 cups Medjool dates, pitted

Directions

  1. Line a square or rectangle-baking tray with baking paper. This will ensure your treat will be easily lifted out of the tray without compromising your layers. (Try not to use a very large baking tray, as you want your slice to be plump.)
  2. To start off your treat, grab all of your base ingredients and place into a food processor and blend.
  3. Place the combined base ingredients in the tray and firmly press down the mixture. Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.
  4. Use the same method again for the next layer - place all the crunch ingredients into the food processor and blend.
  5. Place the crunch mixture in the tray and firmly press down the layer. Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.
  6. Now the best bit, the caramel layer! Place all ingredients in your food processor and blend. If your dates are sticking to the sides simply scrape down the sides and keep blending.
  7. Pour the caramel mixture into the tray and even out the mixture (a spatula is best for this part to even out the gooey caramel). Place the tray in the freezer while you work on your next layer.
  8. Finally the chocolate layer! In a mixing bowl mix all ingredients together until you have a smooth consistency. Pour over the slice and freeze overnight or for at least 4 hours.

Tip When cutting your slice use a warm sharp knife to ensure your slice cuts clean.
