SO DELICIOUS!!!!

Her Recipe:
for the crust:
•1 & 1/4 cup GF crispy rice cereal (I used Kamut Puffs)
•1/4 cup brown rice syrup* ( I used honey)
•2 tbsp peanut butter*
•1 tsp pure vanilla extract
•pinch of fine grain sea salt

for the date caramel:
•200-210 grams pitted soft Medjool dates (about 1 & 1/4 cup pitted dates)
•1 tbsp peanut butter* (I used almond butter)
•1 tbsp almond milk, or more if needed
•pinch of fine grain sea salt

for the chocolate coating:
•1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
•1 tsp coconut oil

Directions:

1. Line an 8-inch pan with two pieces of parchment paper. In a small pot, add the brown rice syrup (or honey), peanut butter, and vanilla. Increase heat to medium and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently until combined. Add pinch of salt. Pour into a large bowl with rice crisp and stir well.

2. Scoop the rice crisp mixture into pan. Wet hands slightly and then spread the mixture evenly and press down firmly until smooth. Place in freezer while you make the date caramel.

3. Soak dates in water until soft and drain. Place pitted dates, almond butter, milk, and salt in the food processor and process until almost smooth and a big ball forms.

4. Spread caramel layer over top of the crust until it’s as smooth and even as you can get it. Place back in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set.

5. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small pot over low heat. When 2/3 of the chips are melted, remove from heat and stir until smooth. Spread chocolate on top of the caramel and place in the freezer for about 3 minutes only.

6. Remove from freezer (chocolate should be slightly firm, but not completely set) and slice into rows and then in half. Freeze again until set for about 10 minutes. Store in fridge or freezer.
