Chocolate and Raspberry slice

These Chocolate and Raspberry slices are a real treat. They’re sweet, chocolatey and decadent and make the perfect end to a show stopping meal.

I created this recipe to bring along to one of my girlfriend’s birthday brunches, and I totally fell in love with it. I now end up bringing it along to every special occasion and find that it’s a real crowd pleaser – even for people who are not used to eating raw desserts!


Ready in 90 minutes Good For ,

Directions

In a food processor mix the base together for a few minutes, until fully combined. You are looking for a dough like consistency. Push the dough into a small baking tray or loaf tin, lined with baking paper, so it is 1-2 cm thick.

Place in the freezer while you make the next layer.

Blend the ingredients for the raspberry layer together in a blender then pour over the base and pop in the freezer for half and hour.

When this has been in half an hour place the coconut oil, maple syrup and cacao in a saucepan on a low heat and stir well until it smells like melted chocolate. Allow to cool then pour over the raspberry slice, pop it back in the freezer for half an hour then into the fridge until you want to dig in. Cut into slices and enjoy.

This will last for 2 weeks in the fridge, but will probably be eaten in 5 minutes!

      Hi gorgeous, they are about the size of a walnut, you can get them from most supermarkets or health food shops, but here is a link to them on amazon: http://amzn.to/2gHxcwc
      Hope this helps! xx

    These didn’t work at all for me. Followed recipe exactly but the chocolate layer just crumbles and therefore they don’t cut.

      Oh no, this is rubbish – I’m sorry it didn’t work out! Maybe try a few more dates, and a little more oil and leave it to freeze for longer. I hope that it works next time. xx

    Just made this,taste amazing, but my raspberry layer came out too soft and it will not harden in the freezer. Cutting it makes it a total mess. I followed the recipe exactly so now wondering what went wrong. Any recommendations?!
