…. because no other words better describe these macadamia-nutty, salted-caramelly, white chocolately and delightfully fudgey squares of Paleo goodness. They are in every sense of the words a: Salted Caramel and Macadamia Dream…

This recipe evolved last week, because, everyone seems to be doing the salted-caramel thing and I wanted in!

‘Salted Caramel’ – just hearing those words gets me so excited and to make a version which is 100% paleo, healthy and filled with nature’s super foods is a no-brainer. I can only wonder why I hadn’t done it sooner.

You won’t find cream, butter or sugar in this batch. But you will find natures amazing, health-giving and immune-supporting ingredients such as medjool dates, coconut oil, raw cacao butter and macadamia nuts. Blended together they make the smoothest caramel-‘white chocolate’ fudge and by adding a little sea-salt, you achieve that perfect salted-caramel flavour.

Credit must go to my instagram follower for the name – thanks @chiara_gizzi!

So here is my recipe for Salted Caramel and Macadamia Dream – enjoy! xx

    I made the peanut butter bark recently & because I had no peanut butter I used almond butter & also added a teasp of cacao powder. It turned out pretty well although very rich. A friend also made the salted caramel macadamia dream & it is just that. Dreamy & delicious!
    Thank you for all your fantastic recipes. I love your website & I recommend it to all my friends & family.
    Many thanks.

    Whenever a recipe indicates using 100g of cacao butter or coconut oil I have to guess because I don’t have anything to measure the weight. Is it possible to include a cup measurement alongside the measurement in grams? I would really appreciate it. Thank you
