Equipment

  • Food processor, rolling pin or Thermomix
  • Stove-top, microwave or Thermomix

Ingredients

  • 130 g (1 cup) roasted almonds
  • 100 g (¾ cup) pitted dates
  • 250 g plain sweet biscuits like Arnott's Marie
  • 220 g (¾ cup) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbs golden syrup
  • 125 g butter
  • 250 g dark chocolate chopped
  • 20 g coconut oil optional

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Grease and line a 18X28cm rectangular slice tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • Roughly chop the roasted almonds and the pitted dates and set aside in a large bowl.
  • Finely crush the plain biscuits using a food processor or a rolling pin and add to the dates and almonds.
  • Place the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter into a saucepan and melt over a low heat for 2-3 minutes or until melted.
  • Pour the liquid into the bowl and mix everything together well.
  • Spoon into the prepared tray and smooth down the top with a spoon. Place into the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Place the chopped chocolate and the coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl and melt on 50% power for 2-3 minutes (in 30 second bursts - stirring each time with a metal spoon).
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the slice and allow to set before cutting into slices.

Thermomix Method

  • Grease and line a 18X28cm rectangular slice tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • Place the roasted almonds into the Thermomix bowl and press Turbo 2-3 times (or until the almonds are roughly chopped - it's fine if there's still a few whole almonds). Set aside in a large bowl.
  • Add the pitted dates to the Thermomix bowl and hold down Turbo for 5-10 seconds or until roughly chopped. Add to the bowl with the chopped almonds.
  • Place the plain biscuits into the Thermomix bowl and finely crush on Turbo for 10-15 seconds. Add to the almonds and dates and set aside.
  • Place the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter into the Thermomix bowl and melt on 80 degrees, 3 minutes, Speed 2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and repeat for a further 1 minute, 80 degrees, Speed 2.
  • Add the crushed biscuits, chopped almonds and dates and mix on Reverse Speed 3 for 10 seconds or until completely combined.
  • Spoon into the prepared tray and smooth down the top with a spoon.
  • Place into the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Grate the chocolate by pressing Turbo 3-4 times. Add the coconut oil and melt on 80 degrees, 3 mins, Speed 2 (scrape down the bowl partway through).
  • Pour the chocolate over the top of the slice and allow to set before cutting into slices.
