Cashew and Dark Chocolate Bars

These are a delicious nutty bar made from a few simple ingredients. I have a small plastic mold which I use but you can use bun cases, a silicone mold or simply roll them up into balls and dip them in the chocolate. They make 6 by 35g bars or double if making the balls.

Cashew and Dark Chocolate Bars

200g cashew nuts

1tbsp cacao

2tbsp honey or maple syrup

1tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 chopped cashews to finish

Blend everything , stopping to scrape down every few minutes. If you have a high power machine like a Thermomix or Vitamix it wont take too long, a normal food processor will take a bit longer.

When it is like a paste and sticks together it is right.

Lightly oil the mold if using or with damp hands, roll into balls and place on parchment and chill in the fridge.

Gently melt 150g dark chocolate and dip the bars / balls into it to cover.

Sprinkle with a few chopped cashews and leave to set and store in the fridge.
