These are without a doubt the BEST raw treat I have EVER had!!! No exceptions!! Packed with superfood goodness!! Candy that actually makes you feel good...how cool is that!! Hope you will give these a try~

Nut layers:
3 cups walnuts
1 cup pitted medjool dates
1 T. vanilla
good pinch celtic sea salt

Caramel layer:
¼ cup maca powder
1/8 cup mesquite powder
1/8 cup lucuma
1 cup agave or honey
2 heaping T. almond butter
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch celtic sea salt

Chocolate/Nut Butter layer:
1 cup raw cacao powder
½ cup mesquite powder
½ cup almond butter
¾ cup agave or honey (I used a mix of both)
2 T. fo-ti
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch celtic sea salt

Process all nut crust ingredients in food processor till mixed well, nuts a medium chop.

Press half the mixture firmly into a square baking dish (8x8). Set the other half aside.

In a bowl mix all ingredients for the caramel layer till very smooth, add a touch more honey or agave if needed to make a thick but smooth mixture.
Spread over nut layer and put in freezer till very firm, about 40 minutes.
In food processor blend all ingredients for the chocolate layer till mixed and fudgy.

This will be very thick, don’t overwork your processor.

Take it out of the processor bowl and work it with your hands for a second. The consistency is like a fondant dough. Place it over the caramel layer and press to cover.

Sprinkle the rest of the nut mixture over the chocolate, pressing in into the chocolate layer firmly. This will pretty much fill the pan to the top.

Place in freezer for several hours to firm up. Remove and slice as desired.

This makes a huge batch of candy and should be stored in the freezer.

Has anyone made those yet? I'm feeling like something caramelly and thought this might do the deed...

Fo-ti is a Chinese herb. It's mostly used for its superfoods quality and doesn't have much of a flavor so you could easily omit it.
