These things are so good but you have to keep them frozen or they’ll run and become a puddle.
Notice the food coloring.. didn’t need it.
of course I made this date spread but you can just blend the dates up with a little water. If I can find the recipe I’d be happy to post it, I made this stuff to use up some dates thinking I’d never find a way to use it and I did. Raw Vegan Baby!
press into a pan
spread over top and freeze
There are no pictures of the chocolate layer because I did it the next day and forgot to document.
I got all crazy chopping and packing because it softens so quickly.
Bottom layer: 2 cups walnuts, chopped
2 cup coconut, shredded
1 1/2cup mixed seeds (sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, chia, flax, etc.)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
24 soft prunes/ 2 cups packed dates, pits removed or 2 cups date spread
Center: 2 ripe avocados
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. mint extract
1/2 cup coconut oil
Top: 1 12-16oz bag dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup mashed fruit (banana, applesauce)
In a food processor add the ingredients for the bottom layer. Once a thick paste like batter forms press it into a pan covered with wax or parchment paper. Freeze while you make the center.
In a medium bowl mash or puree the avocado, add agave, salt, vanilla and mint. In a microwave safe bowl melt the coconut oil. Add to avocado mix and blend through. Pour over the bottom layer and coat evenly. Freeze while you make the top layer.
In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate. Add the already blended fruit of your fancy. Mix well and pour over the center and place back in the freezer.
Once you decide to cut it, remove from the pan and get chopping. I recommend placing half back in while you chop because it melts FAST!
I got about 48-64. I know that’s a weird range but I’m guessing because I gave away half and some quarters I got about 6 pieces and some I got 8 pieces. Either way these should be small, two bite size pieces.
