3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TBSP cocoa nibs 
1/4 tsp sea salt

Ganache Frosting
1/4 cup almond milk
1 cup dairy-free dark chocolate
2 TBSP coconut oil
1/4 tsp sea salt

Place 1 cup walnuts and almonds in a food processor and process until finely ground. Add the cocoa powder and salt - pulse to combine. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Add dates to food processor and process into small bits. Transfer to a bowl.

Add cocoa, nut mixture back into food processor and while processing, drop in small handfuls of date pieces. Process until you get a dough like consistency and mixture holds together when you squeeze it.

Transfer mixture to a parchment lined 8x8 dish and add remaining walnut pieces and cocoa nibs to top. Press topped mixture firmly into dish. 


Place all ganache ingredients in a double boiler. Heat and stir until chocolate and coconut oil are melted and well combined. Spread over nut/date mixture and place in fridge or freezer until firm.
