Salted Caramel & Raspberry Fro-Yo Bars

Makes eight bars

Time – 15 – 20 minutes prep – freeze overnight

METHOD

Start by making the date caramel. Blend the ingredients together in a high-powered blender until completely smooth, adjusting the flavouring to taste. Spoon into a bowl and set aside

Make the base mix for the fro-yo bar by blending together all ingredients until completely smooth. Divide the mixture into two bowls

To make the raspberry bars, pour the contents of one of the bowls back into the blender, along with the raspberries, and blend until combined. Spoon into rectangular silicone moulds, then place in the freezer to set overnight

To make the salted caramel bars, spoon some of the base mixture into rectangular silicone moulds, then swirl through spoonsful of date caramel. Place in the freezer to set overnight

Once ready to serve your bars, melt the dark chocolate and the coconut oil until smooth

Remove the fro-yo bars from the freezer and place into the melted chocolate, ensuring they are entirely covered (the chocolate should set almost immediately)

Lay onto baking sheets and decorate, then eat immediately or place back in the freezer until ready to eat

N.B: You can omit the sweetener for a completely sugar-free bar and the coconut cream / gelatine, but these ingredients help to stop too many ice crystals forming, resulting in a creamier bar
