Instructions
  1. In a food processor, process all of the base ingredients until well combined and add around 1 – 2 tbsp of water to form a paste.
  2. Place base mixture in lined slice tin and press down, then place in fridge to set.
  3. Place all the filling ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Smooth out the filling on top of the base layer and place back in the fridge.
  5. In a saucepan, melt the coconut oil and the rest of the chocolate topping ingredients and stir until peanut butter is melted and mixture is smooth.
  6. Ensure base and filling mixture is cold before adding chocolate layer or the chocolate will melt the filling.

  8. Once set (about 1 hour) cut into 16 slices.
  9. Store in fridge for about 2 weeks or freezer for about 3 months
