For the chocolate

For the nougat 

  • 1/2 cup of almond butter (or sub nut butter of choice)
  • 2 TB of maple syrup
  • 1 TB of almond flour

For the caramel

  • 12 soft Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 TB of melted coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup of chopped peanuts, or nuts of choice


Nougat Layer

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together almond butter, maple syrup and almond flower. Press a tablespoon of the dough onto a baking sheet and use your hands to create a small square, about ½ inch thick. Allow it to set for a few minutes in the freezer.

Caramel Filling

In a food processor, blend together the dates, water, vanilla, coconut oil and a small pinch of salt until smooth. Taste it, and if you desire a bit sweeter add another ½ teaspoon of vanilla.

Chocolate Layer

Melt the chocolate chunks and coconut oil together in the microwave or over a double broiler, stirring often so as not to burn.
