Medjool date caramel and an oat base Millionaire shortbread with cherries and sour cherry chocolate!

Ingredients:

  • 100g oats
  • A pinch sea salt
  • 15 fresh medjool dates
  • 50g hazelnuts
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 100ml almond milk
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp brandy (optional)
  • 2 bars cheeky cherry brandy chocolate

Method:

  1. In a food processor, blitz the oats, salt, 7 of the dates, hazelnuts and melted coconut oil until a chunky biscuit-y dough forms.
  2. Press into 4 dessert glasses and place in the fridge to chill.
  3. Next we will make the medjool date caramel. Blend the remaining 8 dates with the almond milk in the food processor. Once smooth, add to a medium saucepan and add the almond butter and optional brandy. Melt together until sticky and smooth.
  4. Pour caramel over the bases and put back in the fridge.
  5. Melt the bars of cherry chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  6. Once melted stir through the plant-based cream of choice and spoon over the desserts. Top with cherries and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
