Ingredients:

For the coconut layer:

  • 1 1/2 can coconut milk or coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

For the caramel layer:

  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 can of coconut cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the chocolate frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dairy-free and refined sugar-free)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the coconut layer:
    • In a small saucepan, combine coconut butter, coconut oil, coconut milk (or coconut cream), and maple syrup. Heat over low heat, stirring until well combined and smooth.
    • Stir in the shredded coconut until well incorporated.
    • Transfer the mixture to a lined 8×8-inch pan, spreading it evenly.
    • Freeze for about an hour until firm.
  2. Prepare the caramel layer:
    • In a small saucepan, combine the coconut sugar and coconut cream. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
    • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until the caramel thickens and turns a dark amber color.
    • Remove from heat and stir in sea salt.
  3. Assemble the layers:
    • Pour the prepared caramel over the frozen coconut layer, spreading it evenly.
    • Return the pan to the freezer for about 2-3 hours or until the caramel is firm.
  4. Slice and prepare the dip:
    • Once the caramel layer is frozen, remove the mold from the freezer and cut it into 16 squares.
  5. Prepare the chocolate frosting:
    • Melt the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring until smooth. You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave every 30 seconds, stirring between each interval until melted.
  6. Dip and finish:
    • Dip each coconut and caramel slice into the melted chocolate, making sure it is completely coated. Place the chocolate-coated slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Let the chocolate set before serving. For best results, refrigerate the slices so the chocolate hardens faster.

Enjoy these delicious Coconut Caramel Slices, a tropical treat that is sure to impress and satisfy your sweet cravings!
