Tahini “Caramel” Slices

Made without dates, these tahini “caramel” slices are a nice twist on the usual almond or peanut butter-infused, fruity caramel layer. They require little effort, a pinch of patience, and some self-restraint not to eat them all in one go…

How to Make it

  • Line a standard 2lb loaf tin with baking paper and lightly grease with coconut oil or spray oil.
  • Mix together all the ingredients for the base in a bowl. Press into the prepared tin and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Place into the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to “set”.
  • Mix together all ingredients for the filling in a bowl. Pour over the base – which should now be firm to the touch – and return to the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes. (It's crucial for this layer to be firm to the touch before pouring over the melted chocolate.)
  • Melt chocolate for 1 minute in the microwave or in a pot over a low heat, then pour over the firm centre.
  • Set in the fridge for at least one hour. (I find if you set them in the freezer you get condensation on the chocolate layer – which isn’t particularly appetising.)
  • Slice and serve from the fridge or remove for about 5 to 10 minutes before eating.
  • Will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge or up to 1 month in the freezer.
