Raw Salted Caramel Slices – the sweet & salty flavor combination made us curious.
With a little sleuthing, we’ve succeeded here in creating a uniquely delicious, sweet seduction. Vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free and, of course, not baked. Classically, the salty caramel layer is made with condensed milk, but we’ve replaced this with cashews and coconut oil. This treat is perfect as a healthier dessert or sweet snack.
Our special recommendation:
The caramel pieces can be stored in the freezer for months and can be eaten straight from the freezer.
Now please indulge yourself in our delicious creation!
RAW SALTED CARAMEL SLICES
fits a form of about 10 x 10 inches
- 2 cups brazil nuts or almonds
- ½ cup coconut flakes
- 7 – 8 Medjool dates
Grind the nuts in a blender and process in a food processor with coconut flakes and dates to a homogeneous mass. Distribute evenly in a mold and press firmly.
- 1 cup cashew nuts
- 5 tablespoons coconut oil
- ½ cup water
- 3 tablespoons coconut flower syrup, date syrup or alternative sweetener
- 1 heaping tablespoon mesquite
- 1 tablespoon brine
Soak cashews in water for at least 2 hours and rinse. Blend cashews with fresh water and remaining ingredients into a fine cream. Pour over the nut base and chill in the refrigerator.
Mesquite also know as Peruvian carob or “white carob” is extracted from sweet pod beans and has been popular with the indigenous people of South America for centuries.
In this recipe, mesquite provides that special something and adds the caramel flavor.
CRYSTAL SALT BRINE
Brine is made from crystal salt chunks. For this purpose, mix one crystal salt chunks in 1 cup of water. The crystal salt will dissolve in the water until the solution reaches a maximum saturation of 26%. This concentrated salt solution has strong antibacterial properties and cannot spoil. After each use, water can be added until the salt crystals are completely dissolved.
- 1.5 oz cocoa butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 2 tablespoons date syrup or alternative sweetener
Melt cocoa butter and coconut oil in a water bath. Put cocoa powder in a bowl, add remaining ingredients and mix evenly with a hand mixer. Pour over the caramel cream layer and refrigerate.
Cut into small square pieces and freeze – enjoy straight from the freezer!
