For the base.
- 1 cup of soaked walnuts
- 1 tsp of honey
- Splash of water
- Sprinkle of salt
For the middle layer
- 1/2 cup of almonds

- 6 dates
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Enough water to loosen
For the top
- Handful of almonds or nuts of choice
- 70 - 100g of chocolate preferably over 70%
For the base:
Soak your walnuts in boiling water for 5-10 minutes just to soften. I sped up this process by putting them in the microwave in the water for 20 second in spurts.
Add the walnuts to your blender with the honey, salt and just a dash of water.
Press the mixture into your tin with the back of a metal spoon or your spatula. Make sure you get it right into the corners. Its okay if it doesn't fill the tin, it shouldn't. I only filled mine about a 1/3 of the way.
Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden.
Place your almonds, honey, dates, salt, vanilla and about a tablespoon of water to start off with in to your blender. Blend for at least 2 minutes. If the mixture is not emulsifying add more water a little bit at a time.
Keep blending until you get a smoothish paste, depending on how textured you want it to be.
Smooth over and place in the freezer for at least an hour to harden.
At this stage you can add any nuts of your choice on top of the mixture. I chose whole almonds. I love the added bite this gives.
Place back in the freezer and allow to chill until the chocolate has cooled.
Store them in the fridge so they are lovely, chewy & chilled for the future!
