METHOD

  • Blend walnuts in a food processor until finely ground.
  • Add cacao powder, Teeccino herbal coffee, vanilla powder and salt and blend again until well combined.
  • Slowly add dates while processor is running until a smooth chewy mixture is formed, then pour into a lined baking tray. Press down firmly with the heel of your hand or a flat spatula until it’s completely pressed into the container, then place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove and spread over your ganache, sprinkle with cacao nibs, then place back in the freezer for at least an hour to set. Serve straight from the freezer to keep it nice firm and chewy!

COMMENTS

The perfect afternoon tea treat with a cup of tea (or herbal coffee if you feel so inclined). Or bring them out for dessert with some sliced banana and my Coconut Cashew Cream – chocolate, banana and plant-based cream can do no wrong.
