Ingredients

BASE
2 cups pecans
1.5 cups dates, pitted
1/2 cup cacao powder
2 Tbs cacao nibs
1/4 tsp salt

PEPPERMINT FILLING
2 cups raw cashews (soaked for at least 2 hours)
1/3 cup coconut cream
1/4 desiccated coconut
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
10 drops peppermint essence
1/4 cup mint leaves

CHOCOLATE TOPPING
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 cup cacao powder
3 Tbs buckwheat kernels

Method

BASE
In a food processor, blitz all the ingredients together until a crumbly mixture is formed.

Line a baking tin and evenly press the dough into the bottom.

Freeze for at least 1 hour to set.

PEPPERMINT
While your base is in the freezer, blend all the ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender until nice and creamy.

Remove the base from the freezer and spread the peppermint filling over the top. Smooth out and return to the freezer for 1-2hours.

CHOCOLATE TOPPING
Once the filling is set, prepare the chocolate topping. In a small saucepan, lightly toast the buckwheat kernels until golden and crunchy. Set aside to cool.

Melt together the coconut oil, brown rice syrup and cacao powder over a low heat in a small saucepan until combined.

Stir the buckwheat kernals into the chocolate.

Pour over the peppermint cream and smooth out.

Put back in the freezer for about 30 minutes for the topping to set.
