Raw Chocolate Slice

Raw chocolate slice

Not many people turn down a piece of chocolate slice. Even though they say, “oh I shouldn’t ” but still take a piece and perhaps feel a little guilty afterwards.

Well, this raw chocolate slice is made from whole foods – no artificial junk in here. So go ahead indulge with no need to feel guilty about it.


This was one of the first raw recipes I came up with and it has always been one of my favorites. It’s easy to make with no oven needed. It will keep for ages in the freezer, but if you are like me it won’t last long! The freezer is where I like to store it, it can be devoured straight from the freezer. 

All you are going to need are the raw ingredients, a food processor, a container to put the slice in, and your fridge or freezer to let it chill.

Ingredients

6-8 Fresh medjool dates
¼ cup of sultanas (raisins)
1 cup of nuts plus a few extra to sprinkle on top of slice (they can be mixed nuts, I like to use macadamia nuts, Brazil nuts or walnuts)
pinch of good quality salt
1 Tbsp of melted coconut oil
1/3 cup of raw honey
2 Tsp of water
½ cup of raw cacao powder (different than cocoa powder, see *below)
1/3 cup of raw cacao powder for the icing


Directions


Place your nuts into your food processor and process until crumbly.
Add your dates and sultanas and process again. Now add to the mix your salt, cacao and raw honey and process till it starts to come together. If the mix is too dry add a little water a bit at a time till the mix sticks together when pressed into a ball. Press this mix into a small lined container. And pop in the freezer while you make the Icing.

For the icing add 1/3 cup of raw cacao powder along with melted coconut oil, raw honey and a pinch of salt to bring out the flavor. Process until it all comes together. If the mix is too thick add a little water to make it thinner. It should be a runny silky icing, which will firm up in the freezer.


Pour the icing onto the raw chocolate slice and sprinkle with crushed nuts. Pop back into the freezer till the icing firms up then slice and enjoy. This slice keeps great in the freezer if it lasts that long.

    Thanks for sharing! I’m trying to get rid of traditional American desserts (homemade chocolate chip cookies, etc.), and sub them for natural, whole foods! This is great!
