Ingredients for the base

-3 teaspoons of coffee powder (I use espresso)
-1/2 a teaspoon of cacao powder

-1 tablespoon of coconut oil (melted)
-Caramel sauce (Get my recipe here)

To make the base

Step 1- Line a square baking tin with greaseproof paper.

Step 2- Melt the chocolate.

Step 3- Place the rice crispies into a heatproof bowl and pour in the melted chocolate, stir until fully combined.

Step 4- Pour and level the mixture into the lined tin then pop into the freezer to set.

To make the filling

Step 1- In a bowl using a balloon whisk, whisk the coconut cream until light and fluffy.

Step 2- Add in the coffee powder, cacao powder, maple syrup and cooled melted coconut oil then whizz up to combine. 

Step 3- Smooth over the base, drizzle and swirl on some of the caramel sauce and pop back into the freezer to set.
This will take around 1-2 hours.

Once set, defrost, slice into bars and serve with more caramel sauce and coffee beans (optional)

Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
Best enjoyed within a few days of making.
