1 cups pecans

1 cup activated buckwheat

1/4 cup cacao nibs

8 medjool dates, seeds removed

6 tablespoons coconut oil

3 tablespoons cacao

1 teaspoon vanilla

Pinch Salt

4 tablespoons maple syrup

 

RAW CHOCOLATE FROSTING

1/2 cup cacao powder

1 tablespoons maple syrup

To make the biscuit layers:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until it binds together, transfer to a bowl and divide mixture in two. Line a spring form cake tin with baking paper and press the first biscuit layer into the tin. Place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Set the remaining biscuit mix aside, covered, on the bench top. Do not refrigerate or the ingredients will set. Rinse out the food processor.

 

To make the chocolate cashew cream:

Combine all of the ingredients for the cream in the food processor. Once the base has set, spread the cream layer evenly over the base and return to the freezer to set for 2 hours. After the cream has set, remove from freezer and spread the second layer of biscuit over top of the cream. Press down gently with the back of a spatula to ensure it is spread evenly. Return to freezer for 1 hour.

 

To make chocolate frosting

While the cake is setting make the chocolate coating by combining all of the ingredients for the frosting in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk well until smooth. Take cake out of freezer and remove from spring form tin. Place the cake on a tray lined with baking paper. Using a spoon drizzle the chocolate frosting over the top of the cake, either completely covering it or making a pattern. If adding hazelnuts, sprinkle them over straight after the chocolate so that the stick to the cake. Store in the fridge and remove 5-10 minutes prior to serving. Keep in fridge up to 2 weeks.
