I was inspired to create a raw version of this after seeing something similar ‘cooked’ in a cafe one rainy afternoon. The mix of chocolate and orange is a classic and can really hit the spot when you’re looking to spoil yourself or your guests.

For the Crust:

¾ Cup Carob Powder

1 Cup Almonds

½ Cup Dates

4 TB Coconut Butter

2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

2 Tsp. Cinnamon

¼ Tsp. Sea Salt

Step 1 First process nuts, cinnamon, salt and carob powder into small crumbs.

Step 2 Add dates, coco butter and vanilla extract and process again.

Step 3 Press into the bottom of 9” square pan and place in fridge whilst working on filling.

Note: Before making this chocolate you should place the grated cacao butter in the dehydrator to melt. Alternatively you can melt it in a bowl over another bowl of hot water.

For the Marbling:

1 Cup Cashews

1 TB Agave

1/4 Cup Coconut Butter

5 TB Melted Cacao Butter (Cocoa Butter)

1/2 Cup Water

Mix all ingredients in a high power blender until completely smooth.

For the Filling:

2 Cups Cashews

1 Cup Agave

1 Cup Orange Juice

1 TB Orange Zest

2 Cups Cacao Powder (Cocoa Powder)

1 1/2 Cups Grated Cacao Butter (Cocoa Butter)

2 TB Vanilla Extract

1 Cup Agave Nectar

Step 1 Mix the cashews, orange juice, orange zest, vanilla, and agave nectar in a vita-mix until smooth.

Step 2 Add cacao butter and cacao powder, and blend again.

Step 3 Pour chocolate mixture onto base and use a spatula to achieve a level surface.

Step 4 Drizzle the marbling mixture over the top in lines using a plastic bottle or a spoon. Drag a toothpick across the top to create the marble effect.
