You Will Need:
(Serves 10-12 slices)
8 tablespoons salted butter, divided
8 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
4 tablespoons honey, divided
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
A couple of pinches of salt (to taste)
1 heaping cup frozen raspberries
½ cup whole or chopped pecans
Cacao nibs, flaked coconut, sea salt, or anything else you might like as a topping
Line a pie plate with parchment paper or foil. Arrange the raspberries and the pecans in a single layer.
Melt 4 tablespoons butter and 4 tablespoons coconut oil together until smooth. Whisk in the cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons honey, ½ teaspoon vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Taste, adjust, and pour the mixture over the berries in the pie plate.
Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter and 4 tablespoons coconut oil together until smooth. Add the almond butter, 2 tablespoons honey, ½ teaspoon vanilla, and a pinch of salt – stir until melted. Taste, adjust and pour the mixture over the chocolate mixture in the pan.
Freeze for at least 30 minutes – right around the 30 minute mark they will be sturdy and solid but still awesomely semi-soft and bite-able. Cut into wedges to serve.
(We recommend you store the leftovers in the freezer and allow them to thaw a bit before eating each time.)
