Ingredients:

Mint Slice

  • 1 cup Pecans
  • 1 cup Medjool Dates, pitted
  • ½ cup Almond Meal
  • ½ cup tightly packed fresh Mint leaves
  • 6 tbsp raw Cacao Powder
  • 4 tbsp shredded unsweetened Coconut

Preparation:

  1. Throw all Mint Slice ingredients into a food processor and process on low speed until well combined and it becomes a kind of sticky ‘dough’.
  2. Push mixture into a flat dish and press down firmly and evenly to create a large ‘slice’.
  3. In a small saucepan over very low heat, gently melt cacao butter.
  4. As soon as cacao butter is barely melted, stir in all other Ganache ingredients until well combined.
  5. Use a knife to spread a thin layer of Ganache over the top of the large Mint slice.
  6. Refrigerate dish for an hour or so.
  7. Remove from fridge, cut into small slices and serve.
