Decadent and creamy, it's hard to believe these "salted caramel" slices are vegan and raw! These bars consist of three layers: an almond crust, cashew vanilla filling, and a rich, fig-based caramel topping. Best part is you can enjoy them in two ways, soft and velvety or slightly frozen for a refreshing summer treat!

Preparation

  1. Pulse the almonds to fine crumbles and transfer to a medium sized bowl. Pulse the dates and add to the bowl. Pour in the desiccated coconut and mix well.
  2. Line a cake tin with baking paper. Pour the dough for the crust onto the tray and spread it evenly and firmly. Place in freezer while preparing the filling.
  3. For the vanilla filling, blend all ingredients to a fine cream.
  4. Take the cake tin out of the freezer and pour the filling into it. Spread it evenly.
  5. Then make the "salted caramel" by blending all ingredients to a creamy paste. Place a few dollops of the "salted caramel" on top of the vanilla layer and then use a teaspoon to make swirls. Gently shake it to make it set evenly again.
  6. Place in the freezer until set. Let defrost a little before slicing.
