Paleo Chocolate Caramel Sandwiches


  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil (measure after melted)
  • 1/3 cup 100% pure honey (paleo) or agave nectar (vegan) ~ if you enjoy dark chocolate, reduce this to 1/4 cup or even 1/8 cup
  • 23 TBSP cinnamon
  • ——————————
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup (paleo) or agave nectar (vegan)
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and sliced
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil, melted
  • Pinch of salt


  1. For the chocolate pieces, whisk cocoa, melted coconut oil, honey/agave nectar, and cinnamon together in mixing bowl. Using desired molds, fill each cavity approximately 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch full. Store in the refrigerator for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to set before adding caramel.
  2. For the caramel filling, combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and mix on a low to medium setting until dates are granulated, and the mixture resembles a paste.
  3. Spoon caramel onto first layer of chocoate.
  4. Top with remaining chocolate, again so the second layer is approximately 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch, depending on desired sandwich size.
  5. Store in the refrigerator.


Makes approximately 12 sandwiches when each chocolate piece is 1/4 inch thick, or 6 sandwiches when each chocolate piece is 1/2 inch thick (as seen in these photos).
