Raw Chocolate Caramel Cups


This is a fantastic dessert for a kids party platter as they fit nicely in their little hands, but can equally tempting for adults due to their small size. They have a delish crunchy base, a gooey center and sweet chocolate. Dare you to eat just one.

INGREDIENTS

Chocolate Base
2 cups of coconut flour or almond flour
8 dates
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
4 tbsp of cacao powder

Salted Caramel

1 cup of Medjool dates pre-soaked for two hours in water
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp of almond butter

Chocolate Ganash
1/2 cup of cacao powder
1/2 cup of cacao butter
1/4 cup of honey
4 dates pre-soaked
pinch of sea salt.


1. Blend all ingredients of the Chocolate Base until a dough forms and press into your molds, which could be a muffin or cupcake tin. It should make 6 equal portions.

2. Remove bases and using a warm knife gently remove from the tins and place on a tray. They should be well formed and stable. Blend all dates ingredients for the Salted Caramel until a paste forms into a thick, gooey and creamy consistency! Spoon the mixture evenly into all six and place in the cooler.

Raw Caramel is so much better for you than the original kind as it doesn't use any sugar!


3. For the Chocolate Ganash, melt the Cacao Butter, blend all ingredients and pour over each caramel treat evenly. Now place in the cooler until set. You can store in the freezer or the cooler. This chocolate ganash is also a simple dessert recipe on its own. Add some nuts and throw it the the cooler to set for a simple chocolate dessert recipe. It's really high in antioxidants and magnesium so it's a super healthy boost. Just remember it's also high calorie so don't go to over board! This is a treat, but not a guilty one.
