This delicious NO BAKE hedgehog slice is super quick to make and is the perfect healthy sweet treat.
Ingredients
  • 300g nuts (I use walnuts and almonds)
  • 170g dates (pitted and soaked in boiling water for 15 mins)
  • 4 tbs honey
  • 50g cocoa
  • 80g desiccated coconut
  • 130g rice bubbles
  • 4 heaped tbs melted coconut oil
  • 2 blocks of dark chocolate (I use Lindt 70%)
Instructions
  1. Place the nuts and dates in the TM bowl and pulse a couple of times until everything is chopped to a chunky consistency (not too fine).
  2. Add the honey, cocoa, coconut and rice bubbles and mix on reverse speed 3 for 15-20 seconds until everything is well combined.
  3. Line a slice tray with baking paper
  4. On the stove top add the coconut oil to a pot and melt on a low heat.
  5. Once melted tip half of it into the mixture in your TM bowl.
  6. Mix for a further 10 seconds on reverse speed 3.
  7. Tip the mixture into your lines slice tin and press down until it is even spread and compact in the tin. Pop in the freezer.
  8. Add the chocolate to the the pot with the melted coconut oil and put it back on the low heat until it is all completely melted.
  9. Take your tray out the freezer and pour the melted chocolate over the top until everything is covered in a even layer.
  10. Pop it back into the freezer for 2 hours.
  11. Slice into squares and enjoy.
Notes
If you don't like dark chocolate you can use dairy chocolate. When slicing dip the knife into boiling water first to avoid cracking the chocolate.

This recipe can very easily be halved.
