Little Green Spoon’s Almond Butter Bark

A delicious Easter treat for the week that’s in it..

It doesn’t get much better than this. Just a few ingredients are needed to’make the most satisfying of treats; A sweet, creamy almond butter filling’sandwiched between two layers of rich, dark chocolate. If you don’t have?the time or ingredients to make the homemade chocolate you can always’melt down your favourite dark chocolate and pick up from there but apart?from the chilling time this is a really quick and easy recipe and it’s so worth?it!

INGREDIENTS:

For the Chocolate:

* 200g of Cacao Butter

* 1/4 Cup of Cacao Powder

* 1/4 of Honey/Agave

For the Filling:

* 1/2 Cup of Almond Butter

* 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil

* 2 Tablespoons of Honey/AgavePinch of Coarse Salt

METHOD:

Step 1: Melt the cacao butter, slowly on low heat. Then stir in your cacao powder?and sweetener. When everything is melted together, give it a really good?whisk and take it off the heat.

Step 2: Pour half of it into a baking tin lined with parchment paper and then pop it?in the fridge. Set the other half aside.

Step 3: In a sauce pan, melt a tablespoon of coconut oil on medium heat and then?add in the almond butter and 2 tablespoons of sweetener, whisking well?and letting it all heat through until you have a runnier mixture.

Step 4: When the first layer of chocolate has hardened, take it out and?pour/spread the almond butter filling over it. Let this cool in the fridge for?about 10 minutes.

Step 5: Pour the remaining chocolate mixture over the top (you may need to’reheat your chocolate a little!), tilting the tin to spread it out evenly.

Step 6: Pop the whole thing in the fridge until hard and then chop into squares or?chunks and serve!
