Prep Time


  1. Like a square brownie tin with baking paper (I use springform ones)

  2. Combine the ingredients for the base and press into the lined tin, place in the fridge

  3. Add all the truffle layer ingredients to your blender cup and pulse until smooth

  4. Spread the chestnut mixture over the base and place back in the fridge for 2hrs

  5. Stir the melted cacao butter, maple syrup and cacao powder together until smooth, leave it to one side to thicken for a few minutes

  6. Cut the set mixture into bars

  7. Drizzle over the chocolate topping, then top with the cranberries and cacao nibs, if using

  8. Keep the bars in the fridge
