A guest recipe by the lovely Eva who posts on Instagram as The Nourished Lifestyle.

The weather is pretty dull here (Kilkee if anyone is asking!!) today so I am hoping that my recipe for these double chocolate caramel squares will brighten your day. This recipe is based on one by the wonderful Merry Maker Sisters.


  • 2/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp brown rice malt syrup

Caramel Filling

  • 330g medjool dates (if not medjool put all the dates in a bowl of boiling water and cover. Leave for an hour, drain out the liquid and use as normal)
  • 1/2 cup tinned coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp rock salt

Chocolate Topping

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 75g dark chocolate 70%+ (editor note to add you could use homemade raw chocolate here of course)
  • 1/2 tsp rock salt


  1. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Put all the ingredients for the base in to a processor. Blend for a couple of minutes until well combined, it should stick together and crumble a bit.
  3. Press down the mix in to the tin as flat as possible.
  4. Place the tin in the freezer.
  5. Then place all the caramel ingredients in the processor and blend until smooth.
  6. Pour this mix evenly over the base mix and return to the freezer.
  7. Melt dark chocolate over a pot of boiling water. Once melted stir through the coconut oil and salt.
  8. Pour the chocolate mix over the caramel, spreading out evenly.
  9. Place back in the freezer for an 1 hour to set.
  10. Once it is set, cut into squares or slices or whatever shape you like.
