  3. Add scraped vanilla beans (lets be honest, I just throw in the skin too!).
  4. Drizzle in water a little at a time while continuing to blend until like caramel. Add water very slowley so it doesn't go beyond caramel.
  5. Spread over the base and put in freezer.

  1. Melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water.
  2. Add tbsp coconut oil when melted and mix.
  3. Spread over date caramel.
  4. Put in fridge a few minutes to harden slightly.
  5. Mark chocolate into 24 squares while chocolate is still a little soft.
  6. Return to freezer to harden.
  7. Finish cutting with a sharp knife when chocolate is fully set.
Notes
This can be stored in the freezer or the fridge. As it can be eaten straight from freezer, I keep it there because I love the more solid caramel.
