A delicious and easy treat that will help curb those chocolate cravings. These vegan chocolate crunch bars require no baking and are a fun recipe to make with kids too! 

I love chocolate, but what I love more than that is chocolate with a bit of crunch! There’s something about having a crunch to something that adds a whole new sensory quality to it. The sensory experience includes more than just the taste, but also the sound of the crunch that lets your brain know you’re eating something yummy and adds an extra levels of enjoyment.

I used Indigo Herbs raw organic cacao butter to make the chocolate base extra lush, creamy and smooth. Mixing it with dark chocolate takes away some of the bitterness whilst also adding an extra hint of cocoa flavour, making it more like milk chocolate. Their cacao butter is certified organic and made up of 100% pure natural cacao. Perfect in raw/no-bake desserts as well as baked treats. You can also add it to smoothies with some cacao or cocoa powder, oats and frozen banana to create a balanced breakfast that tastes like a pudding! You can also use cacao butter to create your own homemade chocolate by melting it with some maple syrup, cocoa and a pinch of salt!

100g Indigo Herbs cacao butter
150g dark chocolate
75g dried fruit

Method

Break up the chocolate into a heat-proof dish and add the cacao butter, almond butter, maple syrup, salt and vanilla. 
Place it over a pan of simmering water ensuring that the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Mix until everything is completely melted then take off the heat and allow to cool slightly. 
Add the dried fruit, seeds and puffed rice into a large bowl and give it a quick toss to mix.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the nut and seed mixture and give everything a good mix. 
Transfer into a cake tin lined with baking paper – I used a 22×12 cm loaf tin.
Leave to set in the fridge for 1-2 hours before slicing.
Enjoy!
