Caramel Chocolate Slice Recipe

Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe

Raw slices are our way of making sure we don’t miss out on a little treat every now and again. When I made this one in the picture above I did cheat a little. I was low on dates (I only had 4) for the caramel filling so I added a little maple syrup instead. I also was short of time so I bought some good quality 80% dark chocolate for the topping. That’s the great thing about raw treats you can easily change ingredients around and they always end up tasting great!
