Healthy Chocolate Caramels
12 medjool dates, pits removed
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1 ½ tablespoons tahini (both unhulled and hulled tahini work)
½ cup raw or organic honey (organic maple syrup would also work)
1 cup macadamias/almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons organic maple syrup (raw or organic honey would also work)
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
Process caramel centre ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender until completely combined and smooth. You may need to add a little more water to help blend the ingredients. Pour mixture into a lined square baking tin and place into the freezer to set for at least 2 hours, preferably longer. This will ensure that they are easy to cut and coat in the chocolate.
To make the chocolate coating, melt the coconut oil in saucepan on low heat. Once melted, add the maple syrup (or honey), whisking until well combined. Then add the cacao powder, stirring well until well mixed through.
Take the caramels out of the freezer, dip each piece into the chocolate sauce and place on a wire rack on top of lined baking tray (make sure the tray fits in your freezer). Freeze until the chocolate has hardened (approximately 30 - 60 minutes). [Recipe from Becomingness - thank you for the delicious recipe!]
